After returning from a triumphal business tour of Portugal, Anne Mahon has told her nearly 1,350 internet friends she is ready to possibly run for Belmont School Committee.
The well-known Precinct 4 Town Meeting member, Democrat activist and successful real estate broker wrote on her Facebook account Sunday, Oct. 13 that she is interested in vying for one of the three seats – two will be full, three-year terms and the other two years due to the resignation of current member Kevin Cunningham – being contested in the April 2015 Town Election.
“I know I’m REALLY busy with real estate, but I’m thinking about running for School Committee in Belmont,” wrote Mahon who in the past fortnight was a featured speaker and presenter at a Century 21 convention for real estate sales people in Portugal.
“Everybody knows I love and support the Belmont public schools and I think it could really use a cheerleader at those Warrant Committee meetings. Would you turkeys be willing to help me get elected? because I don’t have much time for the door to door campaigning,” said Mahon.
This would be Mah0n’s second attempt at town-wide office; in 2010, she finished third for a seat on the Board of Selectmen, finishing behind winner Mark Paolillo and then incumbent Daniel LeClerc.
As of 5 a.m., Monday, Oct. 14, Mahon received 14 “likes” to her post.
