I am writing to endorse Dale Denno’s candidacy in state House District 45. In these polarizing political times, he is uniquely well suited to bring our most urgent issues into focus and work across the aisle for meaningful solutions – issues that truly matter to our cherished state, from childhood education to elderly health. He has immersed himself in support of these issues throughout his career – a career that includes both private enterprise and public employment. He cares little for political labels serving, as his website states, both Republicans and Democrats in the Blaine House and the Legislature to make government work for Maine citizens. I have known Dale for years and worked most closely with him as volunteer soup kitchen managers at Preble Street – no glitz or glamour, just American chop suey for 300 on a Sunday afternoon. Dale works hard and cares deeply. Please vote for him on Nov. 8.
