Brent Littlefield (pictured above) is a senior adviser to Gov. Paul LePage, and sent the following email to (members of the Maine Republican State Committee, with the attached memo (below) regarding LePage’s proposed budget for FY2014-15:
Members of the State Committee,
I hope this email finds you doing well. As a former Member of the Maine Republican State Committee (many years ago); I know the hard work you are doing to ensure Republican voices are heard.
Wearing the “Senior Political Adviser to the Governor” hat, I want to share with you the attached points on the Governor’s budget proposal.
You probably received an email from me from our LePage campaign account with the full context of the Governor’s budget letter. You might have also seen news coverage of the Governor’s budget proposals. If you would like to see the proposals you can find them here:
Attached to this email is memo we have prepared to give you some additional context on the proposals. There is obviously a lot of misinformation out there and we expect that to continue as the Legislative session grinds on.
I would ask that no one post this entire memo on a blog, webpage, Facebook page, etc – even if it is a closed group. Our goal is to begin establishing a communication protocol with Members of the Committee. That can only be possible if we have the ability to communicate as a group.
We would encourage you to take pieces of this information, maybe the parts that are most important to you, and put them in your own words to send it out to friends and family. Feel free to post specifics you feel are important on your own Facebook page. Most importantly, feel free to write letters to the editor especially to local weekly newspapers or make comments below on-line news stories that challenge the Governor’s opponents and set the record straight.
Thank you for all you are doing.
Senior Political Adviser for Governor LePage
