Ms. Lemma, better known throughout town as Dee, has been an active member of the Rivertown City Council for seven years. She has been reelected every two years because she is popular with residents in her ward, which includes the downtown district and the surrounding areas. She is a Democrat on Council, and has often had run-ins with Norman Tyler, Manager of the bank and a conservative Republican supporter of business interests.
Dee is best known for her opposition to the proposed construction of a paved parking lot on the large vacant parcel on the south side of Biltmore Avenue. Instead, she wanted to have the city build a small shelter for the homeless. Both projects died for lack of funding.
