Letter to the Editor: Brookline Library Trustees Endorse Puja Mehta

Five of Brookline's Library Trustees wrote in to endorse one of the two library trustee candidates.

To the Editor Brookline Patch:

As Brookline library trustees we represent all the citizens of Brookline. It is our judgment as individuals to endorse for the open two year seat at the May 1st town election Puja Mehta. Both candidates for the two year seat would make great additions to the Brookline Library Board but we can only vote for one on May 1st.

Puja has been an effective advocate for seven-day accessibility, has fund-raising experience for the benefit of the Brookline libraries, and has shown a steadfast commitment to Brookline libraries. Professionally, she has proven experience identifying innovative, cost effective funding for municipalities. This will be a tremendous asset for the Board.

As a young mother, she understands the important impact the library has on ourchildren, and yet she understands how the library serves both the young and old. Puja embodies the diversity Brookline lacks on its elected boards and officers. Her hard work,experience, energy, and enthusiasm impress each of us. Puja Mehta election as a trusteewill continue a tradition of dedication and work on behalf of the library users in Brookline.

We urge you to vote for Puja Mehta for the two year term as library trustee on Tuesday, May 1st.
