The Lewiston Democratic Party strives to make Lewiston an inclusive community that meets the needs of all its citizens through diverse representation.

 

Our Mission

The Lewiston Democratic Party works to build relationships in our city with the goal of making Lewiston a place where everyone can pursue their dreams. By recruiting and electing candidates to local, state, and federal office who share our values, we aim to ensure that our government plays an active role in making Lewiston the best it can be.


We’re dedicated to building a prosperous and caring community where no one gets left behind.
— Kiernan Majerus-Collins, Committee Chair
