AGENDA

13 people in attendance.

Next Meeting: Monday, June 26th at 6:00 PM in Lewiston City Hall 1st Floor Conference Room.

Several Names were discussed shortly; Great Falls, Androscoggin, Durty-Lew, Crackville, LewAub, and Souleville.

New name to be used as marketing ploy ? “It’s Happening Here. Remember, that one?”

To get to this stage has taken 3 years to get to and we have not seen a New Charter in print. Going to wait for last minute so Auburn-Lewiston< Maine public is unaware of content's

Committee is attempting to railroad the process as there ideas are more brought forward then the Public.

Only, about 1000 people of Twin Cities; voting population of about 41 thousand persons commented on names that should be used and the committee went with Lewiston-Auburn , Maine or was that Auburn-Lewiston, Maine.

And, you did not even know that the Name was being solicited on line did you.

Other, members that the public wanted; were to give the two cities a clean new name start. But, were ignored by the committee or talked down to.

Lucien Gosselin wants Lewiston-Auburn, Maine.

Speaking, for Mrs. Chantel Pettengill (Not present); Mr. Chip Morrison stated that changing the name to anything other than Lewiston-Auburn or was that Auburn-Lewiston, Maine would create business disruptions as to printing cost and other related website cost, signage changing, drivers licenses renewal as to change and Birth certificate upgrade, upgrade of Global Positioning Service and Legal documentation contracts.

A debate is schedule for 20 June 2017 at 5:30 pm at the Lewiston – Auburn Central Maine Community College in Auburn, Maine.

NOTE:

After, the meeting on the street in Lewiston, Maine in the Court House Plaza. I ran into MS. LASAGNA of the Committee to Consolidate. She asked me, “What would it take for me to change to agreeing with the CONNECTS-IT. I stated, that I could not agree to a Consolidation in all honesty. As, I was the Class President at Edward Little High School in 1973, Student Senate President, Awarded the Good Citizen Award by the Daughter of the American Revolution and was President of the Young Republicans. And, now have lived in Lewiston for 40 years with my children having attended Lewiston High School and that I had to be true to Auburn in regards to Auburn’s best financial interest and would never change the “No” Connects-it to a yes.

Passage of CONNECTS-IT will allow the new city to do a revaluation on all properties and will lower businesses taxes; as, residential properties increase.
