Groups call for Lewiston mayor's resignation in wake of Somali comments
by Scott Thistle
Angered by comments Lewiston Mayor Robert Macdonald made to state and international television reporters, two Maine-based organizations are calling for him to resign.
The Lewiston office of the Maine People's Alliance is gathering signatures and online support for a petition it plans to present to City Hall later this week.
Gen Lysen, the lead organizer for the MPA's Lewiston-based Androscoggin County chapter, said the group collected hundreds of signatures from Lewiston residents and at least 1,000 had signed an online petition asking Macdonald to step down.
