I met Diane Denk, Democratic candidate for District 9 state representative, over 15 years ago.

She teaches special needs students in the Kennebunk schools and helps them and their families learn how to be the best they can be. This work opened this steady and intelligent woman to volunteer with homeless shelters and hospice and to serve as the public member and vice president of the Maine Board of Dental Examiners, helping small-business owners.

Diane would be a voice to keep taxes fair to all workers, stay-at-home moms and struggling families.

I know that when there is a problem, Diane would find a just answer and get it done.

Her constituency, be they seniors, students, tradesmen and women, entrepreneurs or any good citizen, would take comfort in knowing Diane is there to serve us and make a difference.

I happily support her in the June 14 primary.
