WATERVILLE — Gov. Paul LePage is scheduled to speak Monday at a luncheon meeting of the Rotary Club of Waterville at the Alfond Youth Center on North Street.

He spoke Wednesday in Augusta at a Business Insider Breakfast presented by the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce, where he said his next budget will lower the state’s income tax and also touted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, whom he has endorsed.

Monday’s luncheon is for Rotary Club members and will be held at the Alfond Youth Center on North Street, in the upstairs library.

LePage, who was mayor of Waterville from 2004 to 2011, frequently makes appearances in the city, including most recently on March 24, when he spoke at the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce Business to Business showcase. He also spoke at a Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce business breakfast in January; attended a Martin Luther King Day breakfast at the Muskie Senior Center, also in January; and served meals at the Muskie Center in March as part of the state’s March for Meals program.

Before he was mayor of Waterville, LePage was a city councilor representing Ward 1. While living in the city, he was a member of the Rotary Club and co-president of the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter board of directors, served on the board of directors of the High Hopes Clubhouse for people with mental illnesses, and worked as general manager of Marden’s Surplus & Salvage, which employed clubhouse members.
