Hello! My name is Elizabeth Schafer, and I'm running for Town Meeting in Precinct 17. I strongly support progressive policies that make Brookline a better place for all members of our community, and I hope you'll vote for me on Tuesday, May 2nd.

Read my endorsement questionnaire responses

Note: I did not seek endorsements from Brookline PAX or Brookline by Design because I don't think my values align enough with their leadership. I still filled out Brookline PAX's endorsement questionnaire last year for anyone interested in those responses, and my Brookline for Everyone endorsement questionnaire covers similar housing topics as Brookline by Design.
