Senator Dave Miramant represents coastal Knox County in the Maine Senate. Attending high school in a suburb of Boston during the Vietnam War, Senator 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, Senator 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, Senator Miramant also has been a small-business owner and boat captain.
Senator Miramant was elected to the Maine House of Representatives in 2006, and the Maine Senate in 2014. In these positions, he was able to use the leadership skills he had developed throughout his life.
Senator Miramant lives in Camden with his wife, Dee, with whom he has two adult children, Ashley and Josh.
