Change is a popular topic for politicians running for office. It is vague. It has a nice jingle to it. It is easy to talk about. Lewiston is a city that has experienced a lot of change, both recently and historically. What Lewiston needs now is not change for the sake of change.

Mark Cayer is the only mayoral candidate with the experience to know that what Lewiston needs is continued momentum. It is not a catchy sound bite, but Cayer knows that Lewiston’s growing art community is an economic engine, and he is dedicated to supporting it.

There are great things happening in this city. Those things don’t need change — they need support. Let’s keep the momentum going.

Joseph Thompson, Lewiston
