HAMPDEN – A familiar face in the Bangor Region has decided to become a political leader.
Dennis Marble of Hampden announced his candidacy for Maine Senate District Ten. Marble was the longtime director of the Bangor Area Homeless Shelter until his recent retirement. He says there are many problems in Augusta and he wants to bring change to help get the state’s work done.
“Consensus building, civility and common sense solutions seem to be a thing of the past. But i know that to be untrue. I know it because I’ve done it with people in this district. I worked with people I didn’t always agree with and we get things done. I’m a firm believer in finding middle ground.” said Marble.
Along with running the Bangor Shelter, Marble was also a board member with the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce and has served in many volunteer leadership positions in the community.
Marble says he’ll fun as an independent candidate as he takes on republican senator Andre Cushing who is currently serving as the assistant senate majority leader.
