MAYORAL SPEECH OF MR. CHARLES ARTHUR SOULE to Landlord’s Association Forum 11/2013. A, little ahead; of “Trump”. Click, on any red.

1 Mar

I ask a lot of you the voter’s of Lewiston, Maine; when asking you to have faith in me.  And, I am no saint; but, these are difficult times that are testing our measure, self-reliance and self-preservation.

Getting us back to self: I am talking about purity, child like purity and innocents.  But, not child like naiveté, purity.

Today’s media; commercialism, greed and special interest groups misleading us as a people and a nation away from national self-interest.  If this continues; we as a nation will and are headed to the ash heap of governments, that came before for eternity.

I am second (2nd) generation Franco American; on my father’s side and on my mother’s side; a kin to George Edward Soule’ who arrived on the Mayflower in 1620 ( Fact Check: ) as an indentured servant to the colony for seven (7) years, was one of the signers of the Mayflower Compact.

My grandfather on my father’s side migrated to the United States of America from Quebec, Canada in 1919 (F-C: and he at the time had to show the government of the United States of America that he could be self-supporting and he did to the City Clerk of Lewiston, Maine.

Therefore, when I take immigration I speak as a son or a first generation France American.

I also wish to conclude with the statement of; Lewiston, Maine, is not a raciest City. as being portray by the town media.   It is however the poorest city in the state of Maine and has a square mile that ranks the poorest one mile radius in New England.

As, I am 64 years young and my mother is going on 89 years young we consider the rising taxes; such, as the Waste Water Run Off Tax (Rain Tax), Water and Sewer and property tax increases due to out of control school budgets for the last 3 consecutive year in the millions of dollars.

Mr. CHARLES ARTHUR SOULE; speech of 11 / 19 /2015; to, the Lewiston, Maine City Council.

25 Feb

Who, am I to speak; I am not overly educated; overly successful; I am however; a Veteran of a Military Police Action gone by; a Citizen of Lewiston – Auburn; Maine and the United States of America.

Firstly, I would like to apologize to the Lewiston Community for bringing to light; the, Bates College influences on the Community.

Secondly, I would like also; to, thank the roughly 18 thousand voters who did not Vote; and, therefore; “Did not Vote against me.”  Thank – U.

I was called an “Eccentric” by the reporter scott taylor of the Lewiston, Maine Sun Journal, Park Street, Lewiston, for exercising my rights to run for political office – Mayor for the last thirty (30) year’s.

But is it, not my right; in the definitions of the American electoral society we still know today.

And, was it not this Lewiston – Auburn circulated newspaper; that, on the Honorable Mayor Robert E. MacDonald’s first attempt in November of 2011 to be mayor; of, Lewiston, Maine?   Asked, you the Lewiston Voters to; “RESET THE CLOCK” and, vote for a deceased honorable candidate ?  The now deceased Candidate for Mayor of Lewiston, Maine; the Honorable Mr. Mark Paradis.

I was going to ask you to suspend your newspapers; but, now realize that this would only hurt the job situation in the area.



All the above bulling by a newspaper calling me “ECCENTRIC” and butting into print was accomplished after being handed a “NO TRESPASS AT THE LOCATION OF THE NEWSPAPER and a NON HARASSMENT OF THE WRITER OF THE ARTICLE” a day before the printing of the reporters article ? or


12 Dec

I see their mental or rational state being drained from them day by day; as, I roam the inner city.  As, these misfortunates lose their hope and are drained of their vital spiritual essence in humanity .

The fact that Lewiston, Maine is the economic hub for Turner, Mechanic Falls, Minot, Poland, Rumford, Auburn and is aiding their children by providing shelter from the winter elements is the reason that I am making the following plead request for emergency help.

With the overflowing; to capacity of Hope Haven Gospel Mission, 209 Lincoln Street, Lewiston and the Saint Martin de Porres, 23 Bartlett Street, Lewiston, Maine area shelter’s my issue has become relevant .

I am at this time; requesting, any and all communities to allocate blankets, sleeping bags, snow suites and tents to facilitate the individual sleeping outside through their own fault or others.

It is my displeasure to inform you that a significant number of individuals are beyond their sixties and that through the mismanagement of the monthly finances (forgetfulness or rotating finances) they have become homeless not though alcoholism or drug; but, rather through mismanagement of their monthly stipend through older age .

Therefore, I request that if possible that you donate any used blankets (Even with holes for we will sew two blankets together to make one a new.) sleeping bags, snow suites and tents to Trinity Episcopal Jubilee Center, 247 Bates Street, Lewiston, Maine or contact at me at 207 777 1863 after 11:00 am.

In all my Sixty-three year (63) of being; I have never seen this plight on our youth or elderly population to such a degree.

FOOTNOTE:  Maine has the fastest aging population in the country and this could happen to anyone of us.  Will you be a winter elements fatality or our child ?

It is hard for me to fathom; that, I see individuals sleeping outside a church; while, the church is heated and empty.    HOW, IRONIC ! ! ! ! !

UPDATE: I would like to thank the Acting Police Chief of Lewiston, Maine for allowing use of the Police Lobby for shelter from the cold by the homeless older lady whom was sleeping outside.   F/CHECK:  207 513 3001 ask for Deputy Chief Office and thank him.

LEWISTON, MAINE POLICE OFFICER STABBED (Lewiston, Maine Sun Journal of 20 September 2016 front page.)**************************** STABBED 6 (Six) TIMES IN, ATTEMPT TO APPEASE “All lives matter: WE, ARE; AT A CROSS ROAD IN THE GREAT EXPERIMENT; ” THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ! “

6 Sep

We, are at a cross road in the history of the United States; in that we have seen the outcome of the past last 45 or so; years, of the Democratic Party pushing it agenda of extreme liberalism ideology; and, driving the issues through it’s liberal media allies.

And how, is this being accomplished; through, the liberalization and acceptance of immorality through media air way, printed matter and humanism ( the acceptance of all and trust in all “Humanism”. ) being taught in our schools making us; open, to all sorts of things .

The acceptance of this country; to, “save” this enormous planet with all it’s problems; while, it is fighting to hold on to it’s own cultural and socially religious unified identities with the bombardment of the culture through the immoral media influences (To procure ratings.) on our children day; after, day as we work staggered work shifts that create unsupervised latch key children that get out of school at 1:45 pm. in some parts of this country..

We, through the aforementioned; and save “The World” mentality; have, open our doors to the migrant populations of the world; just, to find ourselves in harms way and with communities becoming insolvent and the older populations of those communities being taxed out of their existence and savings.  (My mother is 88 years young.)

It is time to gather to the center and end the extreme liberalism of the Democratic Party; and, return to those principals that once made us great.

Let us take a look; and, ponder the problems.

Let us, look at the 13 million legal (13 million; 11 hispanics and then other nationalities not mentioned in the MEDIA.)  and those illegals migrants that have made our boarders a joke; and, if continued will surly extinguish the torch of the Statue of Liberty; through, the exhaustion of this county social welfare system through their having children (multiple) that qualify for Medicare, Food subsides, subsides housing and the expansion of local schools and more because the children of the Illegals are covered through the 14 Amendment of the Constitution of the United States; though their parents are here illegally.

We the people of this great nation; mean, no harm to those immigrants here legally and children; for they are here.  Lets us stop and ponder the questions that have come into the light in this political presidential election cycle; and, truly vet the Republican Parties correct stance on issues that concern us all and especially our children; for, we are at a cross roads in the great experiment; the United States of America.

With the Lewiston 2016 School budget increase of $ 3 million dollars and its anticipated 2017 increase of $ 4 million dollars and the consideration by the Lewiston City Administrator of the acquisition of the Bates Mill Canal from Brookfield White Pine knowing it needs earth work of a speculative estimate of $ 1 million dollars; leave me to advise Auburn to a “No  Vote ” on Consolidation of the Twin Cities; and, a Lewiston ” NO ” vote on 10 May 2016 at Longley School on the Lewiston School Budget increases.
