The other major contested race was for library trustee, with four open slots for five candidates. Board incumbents Roberta Winitizer, Michael Burstein and Judith Vanderkay were all reelected to the board – Winitzer had 2,101 votes, Burstein had 2,008, and Vanderkay had 1,804. They’ll be joined by newcomer Jennifer Rees, who collected 1,871 votes, versus the fifth place finisher, Dempsey Springfield, who had 741 votes.
He adds: “Sometime today or tomorrow I’ll be posting a photo of my being sworn in and a little bit about the election results and what they mean.”
Congratulations to you — and to Brookline for keeping an excellent trustee on the job.
