CUMBERLAND — Main Street resident Dale Denno announced his intention to run as a Democrat in state House District 45.

Denno has lived in Cumberland for about 30 years. He served on the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors from 1991-1997, and was chairman in 1995-1996.

He recently retired from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, where he headed the Office for Family Independence.

Denno is running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Steve Moriarty, D-Cumberland. Moriarty represents District 108, which also includes a portion of North Yarmouth, as well as Chebeague Island and Long Island.

After redistricting that takes effect this year, voters in Cumberland and a southern part of Gray will elect Moriarty’s successor in what will be House District 45.

Michael Timmons, a Republican, also recently announced his candidacy for Moriarty’s seat.
