SF writer Michael Burstein is finishing his second three-year term as a Brookline (MA) library trustee and would like to be re-elected. But there are five candidates pursuing the four open seats — so somebody is going to be left standing when the music stops. Trying to make sure it’s not him, Burstein is running an active campaign.
I missed publicizing last weekend’s Burstein for Brookline $5 Baked-Good Fundraiser, where for a minimum donation of $5 people were able to meet with the candidate and sample Nomi S. Burstein’s award-winning chocolate chip cookie bars. But it’s not too late to contribute to the campaign, just use the form on the website.
Burstein might be the greatest friend libraries have had among sf writers since Ray Bradbury.
In his pitch to the electorate of Brookline he says:
As a new parent with twin daughters born last July, I have become even more attuned to the need for an excellent public library system in our community. In these difficult financial times, I have fought to keep our library on the cutting edge of technology.
The voters go to the polls on May 4.
