Democratic state senator and former Cumberland County Sheriff Mark Dion is throwing his hat in the ring for the governor’s race.

At a press conference at the Cumberland County Jail in Portland on Thursday, he said Maine needs a governor who will lead through teamwork and persuasion, instead of provocation.

“Mine will be an administration that you can actually talk to. Will listen first and speak last. Will be an administration that will know priorities,” he said.
