The fair city of Lewiston is a unique community, connected to the entire world — a world in the throes of great change, conflict and promise.

Lewiston needs leadership that can take all of that in and form good responses to the city’s immediate needs while looking to the future. That requires the courage to consider the gifts and needs of all the citizens of Lewiston, as well as the fragility of area natural resources, in every decision that is made.

This November I will vote for Ben Chin for mayor, in whom I have the confidence to be an effective leader in these crucial times.

Greg Boardman, Lewiston
