The Belmont Republican Town Committee announced that member and State Committeewoman, Elizabeth Mahoney, has been elected to be a delegate at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida this August.
"Elizabeth is a lifelong Belmont resident who is active in the community," said Belmont Town Committee chairwoman Tomi Olson.
"So this latest service is one of many contributions Elizabeth continues to make in order to make our town, state, nation and indeed the planet a better place," she said.
As a delegate, Elizabeth will cast a vote to nominate Belmont’s Mitt Romney for President of the United States.
"We ask the citizens of Belmont to join us in wishing Elizabeth Mahoney our congratulations, the best of luck, and a wonderful experience as she represents our town and our state at the Republican National Convention," said Olson
Mahoney works for a non-profit called “Friends of the Public Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan,” whose President is former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey. The organization’s objective is to train Afghan attorneys in the rule of law so they can improve and strengthen the young democracy the United States has helped the Afghan people to establish.
Mahoney volunteered for the Romney 2012 campaign and in her spare time she’s one of the editors for the Republican blog, Red Mass Group. In the past she’s worked on the Kerry Healey and Charlie Baker Gubernatorial Campaigns, as well Mitt Romney’s 2008 Presidential bid.
