I am writing in support of Kate Lewis, a candidate for South Portland City Council. I became acquainted with Kate several years ago when we both served on the South Portland Land Trust board. I learned of her dedication to our community, particularly in the area of preserving and maintaining open space. Kate is diligent and dedicated, and follows through on commitments. I have also found Kate to be a thoughtful listener, giving full weight to both sides of an argument before making a decision. This type of careful consideration is what I most appreciate about Kate’s candidacy for City Council. I feel as though she will truly represent the voice of her constituents. Kate is very involved in our community and, with her energy, will bring an immense enthusiasm and drive to the City Council.
