Sometimes you meet a person, and you think the person is interesting. You meet the same person again and you know this person is a born leader.

Of course, I’m talking about Kristen Cloutier.

She has served on the Lewiston School Committee and was elected to the Lewiston City Council. She was chosen by council members to be the presiding president. When the mayor resigned, Cloutier stepped up to finish the remainder of his term.

After gaining all this experience, Kristen Cloutier ran for state representative to the Maine Legislature. She won and was appointed to the Appropriations Committee (Budget Committee).

She always looks to promote Lewiston, the second largest city in Maine, while working on issues to improve our lives. Kristen is dedicated, works hard and gets along to get things done.

Let’s send Rep. Kristen Cloutier back to Augusta on Nov. 8 to use her knowledge.

Experience counts.

Diane Grandmaison, Lewiston
