Grand Old Town-Great Granny Runs For Office

 

Updated : May 16, 2009


A 101-year-old great-grandmother has put herself up for election in an Italian town - so she can help her grandson become mayor.

Maria Donati is to stand for the local council in Saludecio, eastern Italy, after her 62-year-old grandson Roberto stood for mayor.

She said she wanted to stand as a councillor to help out her grandson: "Roberto is still so young, what does he know? He needs my help and I have 100 years of experience," she said.

"There are things that I have seen and been through in my life which would be a very great use to him and everyone else who runs the town. I am sure I can bring something they need.

"Yes, I am old but along with that I think I am wise. I think I have a very good chance in these elections."

Local Sylvio Baresi, 67, said: "She would make a very popular choice.

"The older generation have a lot of common sense when it comes to things like economics and balancing city budgets."

From the 103 year old computer whiz and social network fan to the 101 year old ready to leave her mark on the political world. VeryHappyPig is bursting with happy pensioner news today.
