Lewiston City Council candidate Kevin Kelly
LEWISTON, ID —
Lewiston City Council candidate Kevin Kelly said service has always been a part of his life. He believes he can help get things done as a city councilor.
Kevin Kelly sees a lot of potential in the city of Lewiston and Lewiston has a bright future. He’d like to build upon that future from the groundwork of what’s being done.
“The high school with the career technical program, and the city park, not only could that be a jewel for the city of Lewiston but also an economic venue,” he explained.
Kelly is an Army veteran, and spent seven years serving our country. He followed his parents’ footsteps serving their communities and never looked back.
Kelly said, “Service has always been a huge part of my life and that’s one of the biggest motivations for me running for city council.”
Kelly was part of the City of Lewiston’s Solid Waste Advisory Commission before it was dissolved. As a resident, he attends city council meetings. and one of the issues he’s heard during public comment is bringing Lewiston into full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. It’s another important issue he’d like to pursue.
“You need to be able to get to doctor appointments if you need to,” said Kelly. “We have a wonderful library downtown and everybody should be able to get from their living room to that library if they so choose. They should be able to get from downtown to the orchards pool if they so choose.”
But in order to get the work done, Kelly said the city needs a council made up of individuals who can work together towards a common goal, and respectfully agree to disagree.
“Working together to find those answers and get solutions and implement them is what’s really important for the community and that’s what I really do well at,” said Kelly.
