As a fellow city councilor, I have worked closely with Shane Bouchard on many issues. Together, we have taken many stands in the face of adversity, never afraid to cast the right vote or sometimes disagree. Shane is a man of action who has represented his constituents as a skilled negotiator and problem solver.

Bouchard is a leader among leaders and the breadth of his abilities easily surpasses those of the current mayor or any of the other mayoral candidates he is up against.

Additionally, Michael Marcotte is running for the Ward 7 council seat. I have known him for a number of years, and he is without a doubt the best candidate to take my place as Lewiston’s next city councilor representing Ward 7.

On Nov. 7, Shane Bouchard deserves support to become the next mayor, and Michael Marcotte should be elected as the next Ward 7 city councilor.

Mike Lachance, Lewiston
