There is much talk among voters who refute an honest man, but actions speak louder than words.

Lewiston mayoral candidate Ben Chin has worked tirelessly for Maine families, locally and statewide. Along with allies and foes, he has pushed back on policies at threat of being eliminated.

Municipalities across our state are illegally denied $1 million of federal Title I funding. Despite this, Lewiston’s school funding was higher than expected this year. The Homestead Exemption was on the chopping block for residents under 65 but, in fact, was increased. The Circuit Breaker Program was added to tax forms for greater accessibility for ordinary Maine families and individuals.

While putting money back into the pockets of Mainers, he has proven his ability to work among differences and still get the job done.

Chin continues to lead an honorable campaign. On Dec. 8, I will be proud to call him Lewiston’s mayor.
