As a past city councilor, as chairperson of the Lewiston Finance Committee and as a volunteer for other city and school matters, I have gotten to know many people who were elected or wishing to be elected. It is with that in mind that I heartily endorse Shane Bouchard for mayor of Lewiston.

Bouchard has a passion for Lewiston that is undeniable. He works hard as a city councilor but, more importantly, he listens and takes all views into account before making a decision. As a city councilor he has experience in budgets, economic development and other issues Lewiston officials will face. But most importantly, his heart is in Lewiston and he does not view this as a stepping stone position for greater personal glory.

I urge my friends and neighbors to vote for Shane Bouchard as mayor Tuesday, Dec. 12. Lewiston deserves the best.

Robert Reed, Lewiston
