Brookline election results: Aschkenasy and Greene win Select Board seats


Wicked Local
The results are in: Bernard Greene will serve another term as Brookline Select Board member, joined by newcomer Dr. Miriam Aschkenasy. Aschkenasy will succeed incumbent Nancy Heller, who was not re-elected Tuesday.
Aschkenasy led the pack with 3,518 votes, followed by Greene with 3,315, Heller with 3,171, Zoe Lynn with 2,731 and Donelle O'Neal with 915. Brookline saw slightly higher voter turnout this year than in 2020, with 7,453 of the town's 39,790 registered voters — 18.73% — either heading to the polls or mailing in a ballot. Last year's turnout was 17.5%. 
Heller and Greene, the current Select Board chair, have both served on the board since 2015.
They met with stiff competition in their campaigns for re-election, especially after the Gerald Alston discrimination case once again made headlines just a week before the election. The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed the town had unjustly fired Alston, a Brookline firefighter, after he reported racism in the workplace; Greene and Heller both voted to fire Alston and continue appealing his case against the town.

Town Election: Brookline goes to the polls


Wicked Local
Brookline’s town election got off to a cold and wet start Tuesday amid a heavy rainstorm, with early voting and mail-in ballots contributing to quiet polling places.
Through 7 p.m., the town had seen 6,937 votes cast so far in the May 4 Town Election, including early in-person votes and mail-in ballots tabulated at individual precincts, according to Jeff Nutting, a consultant in the Town Clerk’s office who has led Brookline elections during Town Clerk Pat Ward’s leave.
“In person voting today so far is extremely light,” Nutting wrote in an email. “I am not sure if the weather is affecting turnout.”

Activists in Brookline continue to push for more action following the Supreme Judicial Court's ruling that Gerald Alston, a Black firefighter who complained of racism in the workplace in 2010, was unjustly fired after he spoke up.
At a rally on Sunday sponsored by Brookline for Racial Justice and Equity and Brookline Budget Justice, around 100 of Alston's supporters focused on Select Board members Bernard Greene, Nancy Heller and John VanScoyoc, who they say appealed against Alston's case. Greene and Heller are up for re-election on Tuesday.

Brookline firefighter Gerald Alston takes fight for justice to polls


Alston is still waiting for justice.
His legal fight, he said, was just one battle in the war to reshape Brookline's attitude toward people of color and minorities.
The next fight will come at the polls Tuesday, when Brookline will vote to fill two seats on the Select Board. The two incumbents running for re-election, Bernard Greene and Nancy Heller, both voted to fire Alston and then to continue appealing his case against the town.  
Alston’s case dates back to 2010, when Lt. Paul Pender, one of his Fire Department superiors, mistakenly left the “n-word” in a voicemail for Alston.

Brookline restaurant buzz: Brothers changes hands, Blue Bottle opens


Wicked Local
Is Brothers Restaurant gone for good? What’s moving into the former Toichi Ichiban? Who’s Blue Bottle, and what do they sell?
Here’s the local restaurant buzz around town:
Vello Restaurant and Bar, 404 Harvard St.
After changing hands earlier this year, Brothers Restaurant is getting a new name and menu.
The JFK Crossing staple, known for its breakfast and brunch offerings, will now be called Vello Restaurant and Bar. The owners originally planned to keep the Brothers name, but wanted something that would reflect the restaurant’s new Latin-leaning theme, attorney Frank Ravinal told the Select Board last week.
