BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Republican Gov. Paul LePage is heading north to talk to Mainers about his ambitious plan to overhaul the tax code in the state budget.

LePage will hold a town hall event at the Gracie Theatre at Husson University in Bangor on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

The governor visited Westbrook for his first town hall event on his more than $6 billion budget plan last month. LePage fielded questions from residents on a wide range of issues, including his plan to impose property taxes on nonprofit organizations and to expand the sales tax to include more services.

Like in Westbrook, the governor will be joined Wednesday by Jonathan LaBonte, who serves as director of the Office of Policy and Management and is also the mayor of Auburn.
