Sept. 08, 2011

FAIRFIELD, Maine ó Gov. Paul LePage asked employers on Wednesday to stand with him as he reaffirmed his administrationís commitment to fighting domestic violence at home and in the workplace.

At an event at Hammond Tractor in Fairfield, the governor signed an executive order that directs state agencies to make domestic violence awareness a priority. He also announced the creation of a domestic violence awareness toolkit that will be offered to businesses at no cost.


ďI will say this: I have never seen a gun hurt anybody. I have seen a person holding a gun hurt someone,Ē he said in an interview after Wednesdayís event. ďSo this policy is not attempting to fix gun problems, itís attempting to fix people problems.
