I am writing to support Wells Lyons for District 2, Portland City Council.

I met Wells at a neighborhood meeting last year, and I was immediately impressed with his commitment to our city.

In addition to his volunteer work on the boards of Maine Citizens for Clean Elections and the Presumpscot Regional Land Trust, Wells serves the community volunteering with an organization I founded, Shoveling for Seniors.

You may remember the winter we had last year. Well, in each storm, Wells was out there shoveling the sidewalks, stairs and front porches of elderly Portland residents who would have trouble clearing the snow on their own.

Wells is someone who is willing to do the hard work to make our community a better place. He would be a wonderful addition to the council.
