Take this quick quiz to help you decide which candidate for the Brookline Selectboard (Board of Selectmen) to vote for on May 5.
As a Brookline voter, I care about:
Working for commercial development that contributes to the town's quality of life and is compatible with its neighborhoods.
Understanding that individuals and communities can make a difference in creating a healthy sustainable environment.
Listening to and respecting people of different backgrounds with the goal of making Brookline work for everyone.
Knowing that quality education is important for every child, for their future wellbeing, and for the economic health of our families, communities, nation, and world.
Valuing the warmth and neighborliness created by a sense of community, with safe streets and an income-range of housing.
