BELTON (January 22, 2014) A local mayoral candidate could soon make history if elected.
On Wednesday Marion Grayson announced she'll be running for mayor of Belton after the current mayor said he's not planning to run again.
Currently she's the only candidate in the race and the deadline to file is next Thursday.
Grayson is currently the Belton Mayor Pro Tem and has been on the City Council since 2004.
If elected, she'll be the first female mayor of Belton since it was founded in 1850.
"If Belton wants a face of somebody that's gonna love Belton and is gonna brag about it and keep what we love about Belton in place and yet be aware of the fact that we're growing and that we have to be prepared for that as well, I would love to be that person," Grayson said.
Grayson grew up in Belton and lives there now with her husband Danny.
They have children and grandchildren in the area.
