Lewiston has long had a significant Somali population, and now the School Committee in Maine’s second-largest city’s has its first Somali member. Zam Zam Mohamud cast her first votes this week following her appointment by Mayor Robert Macdonald to complete the term of a member who resigned. Mohamud, 38, told the Sun Journal that she intends to serve out the term that expires in January and might seek election. She was an active parent during the education of her children, both of whom are now in college, and she has been a US citizen since 2006.
