Election Day is Tuesday, May 2, 2023
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.
Centering racial/disability equity and justice during Town Meeting's decision-making process
Taking bold action to tackle the impending climate crisis - we should be leaders in this space
Upgrading walking and cycling infrastructure to eliminate crashes and promote car-free living
Reimagining public safety by creating new social services which would better fulfill our community's needs
"Coalition of community members committed to electing progressives in Brookline — and taking real action for racial, climate, and economic justice."
"Est. 2019 to push for housing & zoning regulations to create a Brookline that's economically diverse, inclusive, & environmentally sound."
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.
Where to vote
Precinct 17 is in Coolidge Corner, and our polling place is at the Coolidge Corner Library (Community Room) at 31 Pleasant St.
Your precinct or polling place may have changed this year - make sure to look it up before Election Day!
I'd love to hear from you! Please reach out if you have any questions or suggestions:
