LEWISTON — Lee Clement, the Ward 6 city councilor, is seeking a second term representing Lewiston’s largest ward.

A retired law enforcement and public safety executive with over 50 years of experience in municipal and county government, Clement said he’s “running on a record of transparency, integrity and strong constituent representation.”

Believing Lewiston is poised for positive development and will be the next “big thing” for Maine, he said he wants to continue the work started by the current council before the pandemic hit and forward movement slowed to a crawl.

As chairman of the Finance Committee, a general assembly member of the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments and member of the city loan qualification committee, Clement believes Lewiston needs to continue strong and common-sense fiscal management in order to provide needed services in a cost-effective manner.

In addition to his civil service, he has been active in the Masons, is a sportsman and a Patron Life Member of the NRA, a member of the Androscoggin County Fish and Game Association and a volunteer range safety officer for the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

Clement has been married to Lewiston native, Lucille Leclair, for about 50 years, is the father of two grown children and grandfather of four. Clement said he “has a strong desire to maintain law and order and safe neighborhoods, improve local infrastructure, establish fiscal responsibility and transparent local government all while making Lewiston a great city and part of an even greater USA.”
