EDITOR: The Daily Press article of Sept. 14, covering Deb Lewis’s announcement that she would not seek a third term as mayor of Ashland, chose to emphasize the challenges faced by Mayor Lewis during her tenure. Indeed, Ashland has faced challenges during these last eight years, which makes the city’s accomplishments under Mayor Lewis’s leadership during those years all the more impressive. Here are just a few of those accomplishments that come to mind:

• The city successfully concluded the Highway 2 litigation without spending a penny of city money and, incidentally, proving the value of cured-in-place technology that has now been widely used by the Public Works Department to repair leaking storm sewers.
