I’ve had the good fortune to work with Dale McCormick, off and on, since the early 1980s, and know her to be an innovative thinker who has a remarkable ability to find solutions to problems others see as unresolvable.

She would be an outstanding member of the Augusta City Council. Her experience as a home builder and former head of Maine Housing will enable her to help the city find ways to improve the quality of rental housing to help tenants without causing landlords to abandon their properties.

If I lived in Augusta, I would be proud to vote for Dale. Because I don’t, the best I can do is to urge Augusta residents to cast their ballots for Dale on Election Day. I’m confident you won’t regret electing her to the City Council. She will make you proud!
