As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45. Dale has the skills and experience to make our government more cost-effective and responsive to all Maine citizens. With an extensive business background, as a former vice president at UNUM, he will strive to stimulate business growth while maintaining Maine’s long-standing commitment to clean air, water and land. As a former assistant attorney general and a director at the Department of Health and Human Services, Dale is an effective leader who will work cooperatively with both parties in the Legislature. In addition to his distinguished experience, Dale also brings compassion and a commitment to helping the under-served, and has been a dedicated volunteer at Preble Street and the Long Creek Youth Development Center, among others. Please join me in supporting Dale Denno in November.
