I suppose it had to happen eventually.
You get a bunch of community-minded people together and sooner or later one of them is going to try and play in the big leagues.
Mary-Margaret McMahon has been on the DECA executive since we were half a dozen people sitting around a dining room table. She’s been instrumental in almost everything that DECA has become – from the farmers’ market to the countless environmental initiatives, from DECA Bikes to re-skilling workshops and so much more. At least half of what you read on this blog comes straight from Mary-Margaret because she’s either organizing it or knows someone who is.
DECA is not a political organization. It’s in our charter. So you won’t see us endorsing one candidate over another in October’s municipal election. However, because she’s such an integral part of DECA, I thought you should know that Mary-Margaret is running in Ward 32 (south of the Danforth). Her campaign launch party is Tuesday, May 18th at the Balmy Beech Club (1 Beech Ave – doors open at 7:30 – remarks at 8 p.m.) RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
