Full Disclosure: I personally participated in the endorsement process and am an active member of Progressive Newton.

To all Newton Voters,

Based on these candidates’ responses to our questionnaire and the entirety of their public record, our Endorsements Committee is confident that these candidates share our most deeply held values and are the best candidates to move Newton forward in a positive direction. Our membership agreed, ratifying each of the Endorsement Committee’ recommendations with over 60 percent of the vote.

Newton is fortunate to have so many talented and progressive residents willing to serve in public office.

We urge you to look for these candidates around town, and to vote for them on Tuesday, November 7th. They will serve Newton well.
