Lees hoping to return to Town Council

LINCOLN – Dean Lees, who previously served as councilor for three terms, is seeking the District 3 council seat in Lincoln, serving Lime Rock and Fairlawn. Lees, who served as council president during his previous tenure, said he "is best noted for creating the very first municipal court system, now adopted by other communities, which gives the power to local residents to challenge public officials who break the law."

He said his "character and performance has laid the benchmark in serving the people of Lincoln, and he's been credited in two books for fighting and stopping white-collar crime in Lincoln during his tenure.

Lees said he has developed key skills in identifying municipal white-collar crime and has now identified current issues facing the people of Lincoln, one being content discrimination. He said he has become increasingly concerned about Lincoln’s inner governing practices evolving into "oligarchy practices."
