Since moving to the area, I have been impressed by the community commitment I have seen in many younger residents in Lewiston. They are making a big difference by bringing new ideas, energy, skills and enthusiasm, which gives me hope for the future. Now that I am reaching elder years, I am ready to pass the torch to them.

Ben Chin is one of those. I have been privileged to get to know him through Trinity Church. He has a remarkable ability to listen and advocate for the rights of everyone, often being a voice for those who are not always heard.

I live in Auburn so unfortunately cannot vote for him, but I do work in Lewiston and hope to move across the river in the future. I trust Ben Chin’s vision and values and would be proud to have him as the next mayor of Lewiston.
