She’s running to represent southwest Lakeland.
Lakeland Democrat Allyson “Al” Lewis picked up a valuable endorsement Thursday, when abortion rights group Ruth’s List Florida announced it was backing her campaign for City Commission.
“Al is an educator, social justice advocate, and political organizer,” Ruth’s List Political Director Kayla vanWieringen said by email. “As an activist in Lakeland, she has worked to confront issues that impact children and has focused on fighting for criminal justice reform, stopping gun violence, and ending economic and racial inequality. If elected, she would be the youngest and first Black woman to serve on the commission.”
