School officials likely violated campaign finance laws, Town Counsel says - Brookline.News

One key reason for being aware of the campaign finance rules and regs ... 

I would expect to see similar training in advance of the possible override being talked of for next year especially given the news from Brookline ->  
"Several Brookline school officials likely violated campaign finance law by sending out emails to parents with information about ballot questions ahead of the May election, according to Brookline town counsel Joseph Callanan.

By sending “unsolicited” emails to various school email lists about the operating override and Pierce school rebuild ballot questions, Superintendent Linus Guillory and four principals improperly used public resources, Callanan wrote in a report published July 7.

Callanan was investigating because a Brookline resident, Joslin Murphy, filed a complaint to the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance after the election. Callanan sent his report to the state agency, which does not publicly comment on investigations."

public employees can take a position on a campaign but not advocate for it on official time

Community Preservation Cmte gets updates on projects, approves schedule for 2023 and more (audio)

FM #893 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 893 in the series. 


This session of the radio show shares the Community Preservation Committee meeting held in Council Chambers on Tuesday, December 6, 2022. 


Chair C Feeley, M Doyle, J Livingstone, P Malcolm,W Simarian, R Power (remote), L Oxford  [D McNeill, M Giardino absent]

Town Administration: J Hellen, A Alleyne,  


The meeting approved the minutes of the prior meeting via roll call vote (7-0-2; 7 for, 0 against, 2 absent). 


Motion to accept the proposed meeting scheduled for 2023, seconded, passes via voice vote (7 for, 0 against, 2 absent)


Town Administrator Jamie Hellen provides project updates on work underway

  • Red Brick School exterior renovation - doors and windows backordered

  • Nason St Tot lot site prep work being done now in advance of renovation in the spring

  • King St Memorial Field estimate and draft depiction of the field layout and work proposed. Timeline and funding remains TBD. Would be adding pickleball courts, would be including a paved path all around the park, would also be adding parking; questioned on if handicap access for the community garden is considered? I added that when the garden opened in 2010, it did have stonedust entrance and among the first four beds on each side of the main gate. It was covered with mulch a few years ago. The base likely could be restored.


Jamie also provided a financial update, it had a minor error and would be further enhanced to better reflect what was approved vs allocated vs. spent, etc.


Committee entered executive session via roll call vote not to return to open meeting  (7 for, 0 against, 2 absent)
