Election 2020 - Dana Dow - Candidate: Maine Senate District #13

Dana Dow has become known in the Senate for his efforts to increase communication between parties.

Dow, who is a Republican, brought forth an idea to his fellow legislators years ago he called “take a legislator from the opposite side of the aisle out to lunch.” He suggested that during April, May and June, members of the Senate could invite each other to lunch around Augusta and get to know members with opposing views.

The two parties need to communicate with each other, Dow said. By the end of the week after his suggestion, Senators were announcing they were indeed going for lunch with fellow legislators from other parties.

“That worked out well,” said Dow. “I’m proud of that.”

Dow is the incumbent for Senate District 13, which includes Washington, Windsor and all of Lincoln County except Dresdin.
