Brass Tacks: On Running For Office with Safiya Khalid, City Councilor Ward 1 Lewiston, Maine

With Safiya Khalid, City Councilor Ward 1 Lewiston, Maine.

In the next few months we’ll be seeing primary elections rolling through our states, and it’s got us thinking about why we vote and why some of us step up to lead and to run for office.

Last year we saw an incredible victory for our community here in Lewiston, Maine: Safiya Khalid became the first Somali-American and youngest person elected to our city council. . I had the honor of watching her campaign, her courage, and her hope spread through our city. That’s why I wanted to sit down with her this month and hear more of her story.
