I am a conservative Republican proud to support Democrat Dale Denno’s run in House District 45. His opponent commands equal respect for his integrity and hard work ethic, but he is less a veteran of Augusta’s legislative process. Dale has spent productive years in various capacities, including assistant attorney general, advocating and influencing policy with a hard-nosed scrupulous attitude.
Cumberland’s next representative needs to hit the ground running to forge bipartisan cooperation addressing complicated issues. Our present fiscal problems have accumulated over years of mismanagement from both sides of the aisle. Dale’s unique experience with the Department of Health and Human Services bodes well for compromised solutions to undo missteps made over the last 30 plus years. An enlightened perspective is sorely needed.
