As summer fades and the November election approaches, I would like call attention to one of Maine’s dedicated and talented legislators.

I had the opportunity to work on many important bills last legislative session with Rep. Tim Marks, D-Pittston. He was engaged, informed and passionate. His dedicated approach focused on important public safety issues, which resulted in strengthened OUI law and enhanced public safety.

Marks’ determination is consistent with his 25 years of honorable service to the residents of the state while serving as a Maine state trooper. While Marks served his community in law enforcement, I had the opportunity to observe his remarkable concern and compassion for victims and his determination to solve crime. This dedication was again displayed while serving in the House of Representatives; he had perfect voting attendance.

I strongly encourage a vote for Rep. Tim Marks, District 87.
