Nominator’s Comments:
“Heidi is committed to bringing the community together. She has previously been on the YPLAA professional development committee where she coordinated Candid Candidates, giving people the access to learn more about candidates running for local office. This work has extended to the creation of Lewiston Rocks FB page where community members can engage on matters important to them. It has not only been a great resource for people to discuss matters with one another, but a place where information, such as snow removal schedules can be communicated directly to community members. Additionally, Heidi has engaged in workforce development roundtable that provided valuable information that is now guiding the City of Lewiston’s pilot construction trades workforce training program. Heidi has a strong commitment to Lewiston/Auburn and an amazing capacity to bring people together that should not be overlooked.”
