Gov. Paul LePage will be at the Augusta Armory on Wednesday night for the next in his series of town hall meetings, his press secretary announced Tuesday.

The governor is expected to talk about “moving Maine forward” and will take questions from the audience. At past meetings, he has discussed his ideas on taxes, welfare, energy costs and student debt.

The town hall will run 6-7 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. at the armory, which is located at 179 Western Ave.

At a town hall meeting in May, LePage made headlines when he said a school resource officer told him a high school student from the Portland area overdosed and was revived three times in a week, an account that has been disputed by the Portland police chief and school officials. At a February town hall in Farmingdale, LePage touted his efforts to eliminate the state income tax and called Democratic legislators in Augusta socialists for their support of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
