Sen. Dave Miramant represents coastal Knox County in the Maine Senate. Attending high school  in a suburb of Boston during the Vietnam War, Sen. Miramant was first introduced to the values about our society, environment and natural resources that still motivate him today.

After attending the University of Maine at Farmington, Sen. Miramant began a long career in aviation. As an airline pilot and captain, he learned to bring a crew together to accomplish complicated tasks. Those leadership skills would later serve him in the Legislature. During that time, he also connected with diverse groups of people all over the world, only to learn how similar we all are.  He spent a lot of time listening to a broad range of perspectives.

While he no longer works in the major airlines, Miramant continues to fly, as the owner and operator of Spirit Soaring Glider Rides. In addition to his work in the air, Sen. Miramant has also been a small business owner and boat captain.
