Lewiston Dem Chair Seeks Candidates to Break Republican Grip on Town

May 06, 2014

The Lewiston Democratic Committee is seeking candidates for this year's open Lewiston Town Board seat. The position is for Town Council member.

"Four years of Republican rule have almost bankrupted Lewiston, financially, and morally," Chairwoman Diane Perri Roberts said. "Residents sent a strong message for change last year with the election of Supervisor Brochey, but he is only one vote on a five person board.

"The Republicans still have control at the board meetings, and hand picked one of their allies to fill the seat vacated by Ernie Palmer. The commentary and action recently taken concerning Artpark clearly shows that now is the time to give Dennis Brochey some help," she continued.

Supervisor Brochey, Roberts said, has been spending a lot of his first four months in office determing Lewiston's fiscal condition.

Left with a surplus at the end of former Supervisor Fred Newlin's adminstration, the former Reiter administration, which included three of the current four Board members and their Budget Officer, "led Lewiston finances down a path of excessive spending with little to no foresight for the future," she said.

Brochey needs support from a Board member dedicated to making right of Lewiston' s finances.

Anyone interested in running for Town Board should contact Roberts, before May 24 at
