I am writing to endorse Democrat Dale Denno, whom I have known since 1985, for state representative from House District 45. Dale has extensive legal and financial experience, having worked in both private industry and for the state as an assistant AG and as head of the largest agency within the DHHS. Dale has volunteered generously with many organizations, including two terms on the SAD 51 School Board. In every capacity in which Dale serves, he brings energy, intellect, humor, and a tremendous work ethic. He has an amazing ability to bring people together and accomplish results. Dale has the business and legal acumen to understand complex public policy issues, and the financial discipline to make principled decisions. Dale is committed to making Maine a sustainable place in which to live and a viable place in which to work. We could not ask for a better person to represent our district.
