What is Transparent Brookline?
Transparent Brookline aims to compile and present publicly available information in a consolidated, digestible way. You shouldn't need to dig through a dozen pages of the Brookline web site to find an email address for your elected representatives, or open a half dozen PDFs to know what Town Meeting decided last May, and how your Town Meeting Members and Select Board Members voted.
We hope this site can be a tool to de-mystify Brookline governance, to make it easier to engage with and influence elected officials, and to hopefully increase engagement and a diversity of participants in our town. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any and all questions and comments. We're also always open to feedback of all sorts: if you see something you believe to be inaccurate, incomplete, or simply inappropriate, please reach out as well.
