SOUTH PARIS, Maine (AP) - Maine Gov. Paul LePage is making the latest appearance in his town hall meeting series in South Paris.

The Republican governor will appear at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in South Paris at 6 p.m. on Wednesday. He says he’ll be speaking about “moving Maine forward” and that he’ll take questions from the public.

LePage says the appearance will focus on reducing state income tax and reforming welfare, which have been two key pieces of his platform as governor. He says he wants to talk about cutting energy costs and Maine students’ high level of debt.

This year’s referendum questions will also come up for discussion. One is to expand taxes on the wealthy to fund schools, and LePage has criticized it.

Doors for the event open at 5:30 p.m.
