LEWISTON — Kevin Boilard announces his bid for the Ward 4 Lewiston School Committee seat.

Kevin Boilard is a candidate for the Lewiston School Committee from Ward 4.

He is president of the nonprofit Kaydenz Kitchen Food Pantry and serves on the Healthy Neighborhoods board of directors. Through his work with the organizations, he has helped provide resources for families in need, he said.

His campaign slogan is Collaboration, Accountability, Responsibility and Engagement, or CARE.

Boilard said he believes everyone should collaborate with parents, students and teachers to ensure goals are met for students. People need to have a sense of responsibility for creating a beneficial and safe environment for students, and he believes people need to ensure all parties are engaged in student processes and successes.

“Parents need to be involved in planting the seed of expectations and allow teachers an opportunity to water that seed to grow,” he said.

The education system needs to be based on the best interest of the students, he said. Boilard envisions a School Committee built on the best interests of the students and their ability to succeed.

Biolard is a lifelong Lewiston resident, along with his wife and daughter.
