LEWISTON – The Lewiston Republican Committee has unanimously endorsed Regina Cecconi for Lewiston town clerk over acting clerk Donna Garfinkel.

The endorsement was made duiring the Republican Committee’s monthly meeting last week.

Garfinkel, who had served as deputy town clerk for 23 years under former clerk Carol Brandon and previous clerk Lilly Taddeo, was appointed acting clerk when Brandon left the post at the end of last year. She said she had hoped to continue on as Lewiston’s town clerk.

Cecconi’s campaign manager, Jennifer Stahlman, said in a statement that Cecconi is active in the community as president of the Lewiston Lions Club and represents a “fresh start for Lewiston.”

Cecconi wrote, “I have already visited over 1,000 households and their message rings clear – the hard-working families of Lewiston desire better access to governmental services, a friendlier atmosphere and accountability.”
