The workshop on How (and Why) to Run for Elective Office in Brookline was a great success with an excellent turnout. The workshop was co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Brookline, the Brookline Neighborhood Alliance, and the Town Meeting Members Association in an effort to encourage more residents to run for office. The program was moderated by School Committee and Town Meeting Member Barbara Scotto. Discussing the details of running for office were Pat Ward (Brookline Town Clerk) and Tommy Vitolo (Constable and Town Meeting Member). Discussing their offices and responsibilities were Selectman Ken Goldstein, School Committee member Abby Cox, Library Trustee Roberta Winitzer, Brookline Housing Authority member Michael Jacobs, and Town Meeting Member Chris Chanyasulkit.
A video of the program is now available on the Brookline Interactive Group (formerly Brookline Access Television) at http://www.batv.org. The booklet describing the elected offices in Brookline can be downloaded at http://www.votinginformation.org.
The event was sponsored by MassOccupy/Brookline and co-sponsored by the Brookline Public Library, Brookline League of Women Voters, Brookline PAX and the American Friends Service Committee - N.E. Region.
