Levesque can get things done

To the editor:

    Dan Levesque is running as the Democratic candidate for District 34 Senator for the Maine State Senate. Having known Dan for the better part of 28 years, I will tell you that he will be a strong candidate for District 34.

One thing that Dan does not lack in is his hard work ethic and his ability to take charge of a situation and the ability to get things done. This was evident as I worked for Dan and the family-owned J. Paul Levesque & Sons lumber mill beginning in 1985. The operations were always maintained at a high level under his leadership. His position as General Manager played a large part in the profitable years for the family-owned business. Dan was also a very influential part of the Route 11 and 212 corridor improvements in the mid 1990’s, serving as the Vice Chairman.

    I have had the opportunity to work with Dan as a member of the Portage Hills Country Club board of directors for the past 10 years or so. Dan has demonstrated his leadership skills and his involvement on various committees that have served the golf course well.

    Dan has a strong business background going back to his 35 years with the sawmill business and also as past owner of an office supply and internet business. He would be a strong advocate for all the businesses in northern Maine. He will do well on the issue of promoting job growth in this area as he did with helping to bring an industrial park, co-generation plant and spec building to the Ashland area.

    Vote for Dan Levesque, Democratic candidate for District 34, for the Maine State Senate.
