RINO Lewiston Mayor Appoints Somali Democrat Activist to Library Board

2/20/18, Maine First Media Staff Report,

Lewiston’s Republican Mayor, Shane Bouchard has appointed the Lewiston Democrat Vice-Chair to the Lewiston Library Board of Trustees.

Safiya Kahlid is a Somali immigrant and political activist.

As part of the Library Board, Kahlid will have some say in the types of books the library Houses — as well as which cultural programs the library sponsors.

Along with her role as Lewiston Democrat Vice-Chair, she also ran for Lewiston School Committee last year in a losing effort.

Her facebook page demonstrates some of the radical views Kahlid advocates for, and apparently, Mayor Bouchard endorses.

On October 12th, 2017, Kahlid shared this video regarding so-called, “white privilege.”

While she endorsed two-time failed Lewiston Mayoral candidate, Ben Chin on her Facebook page, Kahlid shared this picture from Occupy Democrats (a page she seems to regularly frequent) on May 10, 2017, calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The President isn’t the only Trump on the University of Southern Maine student’s attack list. Last February Kahlid posted this smear on Ivanka Trump and anyone who shops at Wal-Mart.

The Lewiston Democrat facebook page — which she is the Vice Chair of — recently smeared a Lewiston resident for standing up for homeless vets and local shopkeepers, calling him the “face of racism.”

The Face of Racism in Lewiston

The man speaking in this video is Jason Lavoie, a Republican candidate for the Maine House of Representatives in Lewiston. He's speaking at a Lewiston City Council meeting, addressing a room full of immigrants. His racism is totally unacceptable, and we are dedicated to ensuring he never serves in the state legislature.Also, to give credit where credit is due: Mayor Shane D Bouchard stood up against Lavoie's racism and ignorance. We thank the Mayor for standing up for immigrants in Lewiston.

That was Mayor Bouchard gaveling down State Representative candidate Jason Lavoie at the end of the video, telling him to “be careful.”

Kahlid was one of three Somali immigrants who ran for Lewiston School Committee in 2017.

Now she holds a spot in city government. RINO Mayor Bouchard last month endorsed a report by a working group, put together by the City Council. Among other things, the report called for the recruitment of immigrants and refugees to run for elected office.

Mayor Bouchard called the proposal a “great start that gives us some direction.”

Along with Kahlid, Mayor Bouchard has also named Sarah Gillespie and Edward Walworth to the Lewiston Library Board.

According to LewistonMaine.gov, the Library Board has policy-setting authority in the following areas:

  • Identification and promotion of general library objectives;
  • Establishing the character and quality of books and other materials to be contained in the library collection; promoting cooperation with other libraries;
  • Providing effective programs and services to schools and other specialized groups in need of library service;
  • Establishing and supporting cultural programs sponsored by the library.

Trustees are appointed to three-year terms.

  • What I am most sickened about is the fact of: Abrogation of Duty/Neglect of Duty. Our elected officials are failing to uphold their oaths of office & committing illegalities when they put non-citizens 1st. I wonder if there is the possibility of a lawsuit against them for this? It is in the Maine state statues: Neglect of Duty, among other things.

  • The dems MUST stop putting non-citizens 1st. I am disgusted by them trying to put illegals, refugees, and others as a protected class above us.

  • We are so sick of the “victim mentality”. It is time for all these so called victims to get off their butts, join the real world, and get jobs OR they can starve. We American citizens are NOT responsible for supporting them. Indentured servitude is illegal and must cease now. The dems have made the American ppl indentured servants to illegals & refugees; loathesome & abominable.

  • Does Maine First Media know if Ms. Kahlid has any qualifications for her new position on the library board? Did she gradaute from high school? Did she attend college, and does she have a college degree? Or is she entirely unqualified for the position?
