Lewiston is one of the safest small urban areas in New England. Of course, we can do better. The crime statistics that reflect favorably on our community don’t always tell the whole story.
As mayor, our safety will always be a top priority. My campaign is about economic prosperity, which can only happen if investors and entrepreneurs know that Lewiston is a safe place to do business. While we are all justifiably concerned about drug and human trafficking and the recent assaults, shootings and troubling juvenile behaviors. Let’s remember that the vast majority of our community are hard working law abiding citizens.
With 20 years as a law enforcement officer, I am the only mayoral candidate with the experience to provide leadership and support to our police department. My plan combines enforcement to address crime, proactive steps to discourage inappropriate behavior, and better access to programs that prevents crime.
