Campaign themes

In a survey conducted by The Patriot Ledger, Mahoney argued that the following was the most significant issue confronting the school district:[4]

The budget remains the most pressing issue facing the Quincy Public Schools. After enduring drastic cuts to our budget, the Quincy Public Schools went to work rebuilding our core programs to best meet the needs of our student population. With new federal mandates, we are faced with the challenge of implementing the new Common Core curriculum and administering the PARCC assessment. The QPS leadership team has been rolling out the new curriculum; this has been a challenge due to the fact that we must maintain current standards with the MCAS mandate at the same time. Leadership roles are critical to ensuring that excellent teaching and learning is a part of every classroom. We need the support of the mayor for appropriate funding of our budget so we can meet the mandates that are placed upon our school system. This additional funding could be used for new curriculum, new technology and possibly more staffing to ensure our classroom size remains small. The leadership team will be gathering results from the PARCC assessment. As your School Committee member I will push the superintendent and his leadership team to substantiate direction with actual data, so we will have a thorough understanding for proper allocation of our budgetary resources to meet the needs of our students, teachers and staff.

What was at stake?

There were three seats on the school board up for election on November 5, 2013. All three incumbents sought re-election to the board and they faced only one challenger. Barbara Isola, Emily Lebo and Anne Mahoney attempted to defend their seats from newcomer Noel DiBona. However, Lebo lost her seat to DiBona.
