Maine Gov. Versus Labor History


06-MURAL.jpgMaine Governor Paul LePage caused an uproar in March 2011 when he had a 36-foot-wide mural removed from the Maine Department of Labor Building. Created in 2007, the mural’s 11 panels depict the history of the state’s working people. LePage, elected in November with strong Tea Party support, said the mural’s worker history focus was one-sided. “We need to have a décor that represents neutrality,” a spokesperson said. “It’s based on historical fact,” responded the artist, Judy Taylor. “I’m not sure how you can say history is one-sided.”
