It is refreshing to have a state representative who understands what it means to work hard for a living.

After retiring from being a state trooper after 25 years of service, Tim Marks bought a skidder, learned logging and began harvesting his wood lot for pulp. He also ran a storage unit business for a time. And, of course, he has been serving as a state legislator for the past two years and doing a heck of a job at it.

Marks is one of 10 representatives to have perfect vote attendance. He also serves on two committees instead of the usual one. Hardly a retirement, but Tim cannot seem to stop working hard and serving his community.

Marks, D-Pittston, is running again to represent Wiscasset, Alna, Pittston and Randolph in the House of Representatives. He has certainly earned my vote.
