Brookline enjoyed an unusually large local election voter turnout on Tuesday as 16.244 percent of registered voters took to the polls. Ben Franco was re-elected to the Brookline Selectmen, receiving over 4,000 votes. Also elected was Selectmen newcomer, Heather Hamilton, who will join Franco, Neil Wishinsky, Bernard Greene and Nancy Daly on the Board.

In a squeaker, Julie Schreiner-Oldham was elected to the Brookline School Committee by just one vote over Paul Harris. Also voted in on Tuesday to the School Committee were Michael Glover and Suzanne Federspeil.

Chris Chanyasulkit of the Brookline Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations Department was elected to Library Trustee along with Gary D. Jones, Karen Livingston, and Jonathan Margolis.
