Newton Corner Native runs for Takoma Park, Maryland, City Council

Lorig Charkoudian is running for City Council:

Lorig Charkoudian, the Newton Corner native who in 6th grade took on the Mayor of the City of Newton, Massachusetts (Mayor Mann) and the Superintendent of Schools (Dr. Strand) when they decided to close her soon to be Middle School, is now running for  office in Takoma Park, Maryland.

Courageous she was, this then 6th grader, marching into a meeting called by the Mayor of Newton at Bigelow Junior High School, Newton Corner, Massachusetts, with her band of elementary school followers, carrying signs of her creation stating, "We've been Stranded!"

This same girl, now a woman, a long-time resident of Takoma Park, Maryland, has just announced for City Council in Takoma Park.

Go to her website, read about her, and support her campaign:

  5. Lorig,
    I'm delighted to learn that you're running for TP City Council! Good for you and good for Takoma Park.
    I've just spent some time on your campaign web site. It's first rate: direct, open, and clear. Sorry I can't vote for you - if I lived in Takoma Park, I'd vote for you early and often.
    Our best wishes for a successful campaign. You've got what it takes.
