In this day and age, the public needs leaders who aren’t afraid to say what they mean and do what they say. It takes courage to speak from the heart, especially when what they have to say may upset the status quo and the political establishment.

Even when I don’t agree with him fully, I know that I can count on Ben Chin to be honest and straight-forward with me. I never have to wonder about his intentions because I know that he has his heart in the right place. He cares deeply about the people of Lewiston.

I admire his commitment to his religious faith which he practices every day in his actions and commitment to helping others, especially the least fortunate in the community.

Ben Chin doesn’t do things to score political points or pick up votes. He just does what’s right. That is why I support him.
