Former Maine Gov. Takes Summer Job as a Bartender

Paul LePage 11052018

Retirement from the governor's office in Maine has led Paul LePage toward a brand new industry.

The Bangor Daily News reports that LePage, a Republican who served as governor of Maine from 2011 until earlier this year, can now be found bartending at McSeagulls Restaurant in Boothbay Harbor.

Jeff Stoddard, owner of the restaurant, said LePage's schedule hasn't been finalized for his new summer job yet, but it's believed he'll last all season.

LePage, 70, will be joined by his wife, Ann, as a server. The couple's daughter, Laruen, has also worked at McSeagulls in the past.

“He was looking for something to do this summer and it just seemed like a natural thing to do,” Stoddard told the Bangor Daily News.
