Lewis, who was smart and had an outgoing personality, secured a job as the VP of Member Relations for the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce in 2016. Two years later, when Pam Dutton retired, Lewis moved over the the Wells Fargo Building at 36 W. Beauregard Ave., to take over Sen. Perry’s district office as the district director.
