ANN ROMNEY INFORMATION AND PICTURES:

Ann Romney:
The Mayor’s Daughter Is Advocate for Kids

The first sentence of Ann Romney’s official campaign biography makes her priorities clear: “Ann Romney places primary importance on her role as a wife, a mother, and a grandmother.” Yet by no means is she notable for her domestic accomplishments alone:

Residence: Belmont, Mass.

Education: Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in French, from Brigham Young University.

Notable Accomplishments:

• Won the MS Society’s Inspiration Award, for raising public awareness about Multiple Sclerosis.

• Helped develop the Right To Play Program (formerly Olympic Aid), an international program that uses sport and play as a way to help the world’s most disadvantaged children.

• Recipient of the 2006 Lifetime Achievement Award from Operation Kids.

• A dedicated equestrian, she won the Gold Medal (Grand Prix level) from the U.S. Dressage Federation last year and the Silver Medal in 2005.

Charitable Activities: Board Member, New England Chapter of the MS Society; Governor’s Liaison, White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives; former board member, United Way of Massachusetts Bay; supporter of equine therapy programs for physically challenged kids; former board member, Massachusetts’ Children’s Trust Fund; former director of Best Friends, which gives adolescent, inner-city girls educational and community-service opportunities.

Primary Policy Interest: Improving the welfare of children. She participates in various programs to help children, including the annual Scholastic Reading event, as well as organizations such as Partners for Youth with Disabilities, the American Red Cross, the Boston Ten Point Coalition, and the Perkins School for the Blind. Religion: Raised an Episcopalian, she converted to Mormonism.

Early Years: Ann Davies was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and her father was the town’s mayor. She dated Mitt Romney when she was a senior at Kings-wood School.

Marriage: “I didn’t want to be anywhere else but with Ann,” Mitt Romney says. “I wanted to be with her all the time and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else besides being with her. And so, at the senior prom, as we danced a little bit, we went outside of the school and I turned to her and said, ‘Ann, would you marry me?’ And she said ‘Yes.’” The couple was married on March 21, 1969.

Favorite Pastimes: Skiing and horseback riding. She credits her interaction with horses for helping her to overcome the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis she received just before Thanksgiving 1998.

Family: The Romneys have five sons, five daughters-in-law, and 10 grandchildren.
