Pearson, Dowse and Clark at Democratic meet-and-greet

  HARMONY – David Pearson, candidate for Maine House District 24; Harold “Dusty” Dowse, the Democratic nominee for House District 27; and Herbert Clark, who is seeking a return to the Maine State Senate, will have a meet-and-greet Sunday, Aug. 5 at John Veelenturf’s farm on South Road in Harmony from 4 - 6 p.m.
  Pearson and Dowse ran for their House district seats previously, and Clark has served in both the Maine House and Senate for a total of 12 terms.
   Pearson is the town manager of Sangerville and ran for House District 24 against Raymond Wallace of Dexter in a special election last year, following the resignation of Republican State Rep. Fred Wintle.
   Dowse is a biology professor at the University of Maine who ran against Republican Peter B. Johnson of Greenville two years ago. Johnson is running for his fourth and final term in the House this year.
   Clark, a retired paper mill worker, seeks a return to the Maine Senate in the sprawling district that runs from Beaver Cove to Palmyra, then northeast to Millinocket and Patten. The incumbent is Republican Doug Thomas of Ripley who will be seeking his third term.
   Veelenturf’s farm is located at 315 South Rd. in Harmony, approximately two miles on the left from the Water Street intersection. For more information, call 683-2849 or 717-7771.
