Katherine “Kate” Lewis deserves your vote for South Portland City Council. Kate is independent and the only candidate for council who has a child in our local schools. Kate and her family bought the house next door when they moved to South Portland 10 years ago, so we know her as a neighbor and a friend. We have seen her commitment to historic preservation, both in restoring her own house and in her professional work. She was instrumental in saving the park at Westbrook and Main and saving Dows Woods. We have seen her successfully juggle work and family as she waits for the Small School bus with her daughter, and then heads for the office. We have talked about local politics and heard her interest in local issues and commitment to working cooperatively, so that our community can thrive. Please join us in supporting Kate Lewis for South Portland City Council on Nov. 8.
