• Elect Christi Electris for Brookline Town Meeting Member in Precinct 7
demo

Please vote for me on May 4th (or earlier) so I can serve a second term as your Precinct 7 Town Meeting Member!

Dear Neighbors,

Precinct 7 is a great, densely populated neighborhood, and we rely daily on the town’s great parks, facilities, public transit, local businesses, senior services, and walkable and bikeable streets. That’s why it’s a priority for me to ensure town services and infrastructure have adequate funding, and that development is socially and environmentally responsible. I also believe our growing public schools must be able to equitably serve all students, and urgently need expansion and resources during this extroardinary time in order to continue delivering the high-quality education we expect as a community. I hope I can count on your vote so I may continue serving Brookline as your Town Meeting Member.

Thank you,
Christi

Background

Career

My career over the past 14 years have been dedicated to research and consulting on a variety of environmental and social issues, including projects on clean energy, climate, sustainable agriculture, well-being, sustainability indicators, and corporate redesign. A computer scientist and quantitative policy analyst by training, I have designed policy scenario analyses with environmental and social impacts, including global sustainability scenarios and place-based scenarios in recycling and solid waste management, job creation, and energy efficiency, and developed cost modeling exercises.

After spending my professional career researching and developing global sustainable development scenarios and local economic development approaches around the country, I'd like to contribute to our community through participating in town government. I'd like to be a new progressive voice and work with the many dedicated town meeting members to ensure Brookline remains an example for other towns in terms of progressive environmental, social, and governance standards.
