Both City of Lewiston and City of Clarkston Mayors gave citizens a look into the past as well as a glance into the future, encouraging people to get involved.

"We know what the state of the city is today," said City of Lewiston Mayor Kevin Poole. "My question and challenge to you as our city leaders and business leaders is to set the course for the state of the city for tomorrow."

"Everyone that works for the city is dedicated to providing that level of service and to finding economies that should lessen the drain on city reserves and we believe will make it possible for Clarkston to work it's way through these difficult financial times and come out the other side ready to meet the challenges the future may bring," said City of Clarkston Mayor Kathleen Warren.
