I am a supporting Sean Mahoney for Falmouth Town Council. We got to know each other when I served on the Town Council and Sean served as president of the Falmouth Land Trust. At that time there was an incredible opportunity for our town to preserve 250 acres of land off Blackstrap Road. A generous land owner was willing to sell at a steep discount, but still a significant sum, almost $1 million. Sean and his fellow trustees put together a broad coalition of townspeople working with the Town Council, town manager, and leveraging local contributions with a match from the Land for Maine’s Future program. Sean’s leadership to reach out to numerous stakeholders, his talent for understanding the costs involved, and communicating the benefits, resulted in an incredible resource for Falmouth. It was a prudent investment then and Sean would be a prudent choice now for Town Council.
