Maine Legislature Convened 2015 Session on 12/3
The first regular session of the 127th Maine Legislature convened on December 3, 2014. Legislators were sworn in by Gov. Paul LePage, including Republican Cathy Manchester.
Manchester was given a provisional seat in the Senate pending the resolution of the disputed election results from state Senate District 25. A special committee will review the results next week and determine the true victor.
In closing the swearing in ceremony, LePage said, “Sharpen your pencils and let’s get to work.”
