ANANIAN

I've been a Town Meeting member since 2015, writing warrant articles on EV infrastructure and police oversight and helping to draft the Town’s Sanctuary policy as a CDICR subcommittee member. In my day job I write code for the Wikimedia Foundation, the custodian of Wikipedia and other collaboratively-edited educational projects. I believe we must foster the diversity of our neighborhood by ensuring those who work here can afford to live here; by hiring educators who can broaden the horizons of our children; and through the METCO and Materials Fee programs.

Working to limit climate change, make our town resilient and green.

Trying to increase affordable housing, repair public housing.

Learning from people of color how to make our town more just and welcoming.

Roslyn(Roz) Feldberg retired as a negotiator for the nurses union. Now she is working for: a livable climate; quality, affordable housing and good public housing; racial and environmental justice; and supports for seniors. Together, we can do these things!

I am focused on putting in place the policies that will enable the Town to achieve its climate goals — including net-zero emissions by 2040.

I apply my training as a scientist and team-builder to climate activism. I am Chair of Brookline’s new Zero Emissions Advisory Board and a founder of ZeroCarbonMA. I filed the first gas ban east of the Sierra Nevadas in 2019. I convinced the town then that it was practical to implement, and built the teams to pass it. Since it first passed, we have been lobbying the state for the legal authority to put it in place.

HYETT

I'm a renter, a poet and Japanese translator, and am currently representing Precinct 10 as a Town Meeting Member. I have the leftmost voting record in Town Meeting on issues of housing affordability, climate, racial justice, and support for Brookline's lower-income residents. If reelected, I will not back down on trying to create a "path to stay" in Brookline for young families and older adults especially.

I was endorsed by Brookline For Everyone and Brookline PAX this year. However, I consider my slate-mates to be the ideal governing candidates, and I will therefore be voting for all of them.

KLAFTER

I am a semi-retired executive from a locally based business, a long-time town meeting member, and a leader of 350Mass, a statewide climate organization. I have two children, graduates of Brookline public schools, and volunteered as a youth soccer coach for many years. I have been an activist around progressive issues for all my adult life, starting with the antiwar movement in the 60’s, and including issues from the labor movement to public school policy to questions of war and peace, and currently climate.

In addition to a strong commitment to economic and racial justice, I will bring to Town Meeting a focus on climate action and continued excellence in our public schools.

LOSCALZO

I reside in Washington Square with my husband Alex and two young children. I’m currently a PTO co-chair at the Driscoll School and part of PSB CARE (Coalition for Anti-Racism Education) team. I am also a member of the Brookline Equity Coalition, lead a local Girl School Troop and am part of Brookline Parents Organization. I have been part of many political campaigns over that last few years including the Building Brookline's Future Team that helped run the debt exclusion override to fund the New Driscoll School. I will continue that work as we plan for the new Pierce Building in the near future.

I have been a Brookline resident for 13 years and a Town Meeting Member since 2018, I am the parent of two kids at Pierce, volunteer as the Pierce School Extended Day board president, serve as a volunteer fundraiser for several small non-profits, love helping people out and participating in community building activities and I am frequently found outside gardening (please stop and chat if you see me).

As a Town Meeting Member, I listen to neighbors, carefully consider warrant articles and actively support progressive efforts that improve the town.

At work in the commercial insurance industry I am a leader who listens and gathers input to inform solutions and guide technology decisions that improve the human experience and I actively participate in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts.

Our town’s climate goal is to be net-zero by 2040. That’s not far away, which means we have work to do. Centering climate goals reaches into many other issues. When we build a more sustainable town, we prioritize affordable housing and denser living near public transit where residents don’t need to rely on cars. Building more housing and tackling zoning restrictions helps us rectify our history of racist redlining and zoning-based segregation. Centering our climate goal also helps us prioritize pedestrians over drivers and invest in safe, walkable/ADA-accessible sidewalks and protected bike lanes. All of this will make Brookline a more equitable, more affordable place to live, learn, work, and play.

I have been a Brookline resident since 1994. My 2 sons graduated from BHS. Before retiring I taught early Childhood education in South Africa, London, New York, and the Cambridge, MA, Public Schools, where I still volunteer. I am actively involved in a climate group, 350Mass, also joining with Mothers Out Front activities. I volunteer with Mutual Aid Brookline, the Justice Seekers group (UU church) and also through JALSA working to fight voter suppression. I will bring to Town Meeting a deep knowledge of and commitment to public education.

BOWMAN

I arrived in 1992 with my partner and children (Ridley/BHS graduates) to study urban transportation at MIT. Why? I believed in the value of bicycling and walking. Why Brookline? Here we could live car-free near great neighborhood schools.

On Town committees I’ve championed a more safe, just and sustainable transportation system (Complete Streets Policy, Sustainable Transportation Warrant Article, protected bike lanes). I’ve spoken publicly for racial and immigration justice. I am a 100% Green electricity purchaser.
