Portland ME mayor decries proposed DHHS cuts

Bangor Daily News, January 31, 2012

Paul LePage's attempt to balance the state's books by overhauling MaineCare unfairly passes the buck to local governments, hospitals and social service agencies, Portland Mayor Michael Brennan said Monday. LePage's plan eliminates $2 million from city programs and includes $20 million in cuts to Portland hospitals, Brennan said at his first news conference since taking office in December.
