Governor Elect Inaugural Events 

Governor elect, Paul LePage’s inaugural events this week will be simpler than what Mainers have seen in past years.An aide says LePage insisted on the scaled-back festivities, because of the weakened economy and LePage’s own style.LePage’s Inaugural Director, Brent Littlefield, also says the new governor will not use a teleprompter to read his speech.There will be no inaugural ball, and a much simpler, hour-and-a-half reception will be held on the same day as the inauguration.The official swearing in will be at 11:30 on Wednesday.(AP)
