Please click here to endorse Lisa Gordon for City Councilor-At-Large. Thank you!
Lisa has an impressive track record of service, both in her professional life as the leader of an international anti-racism organization and now as the Executive Director of the Acton Food Pantry, and as a leader in the community affairs in Newton for many years. I am confident that Lisa will serve the residents of Ward 6 well and be a strong and collaborative voice on the City Council.
— Marc Laredo, City Councilor, Former School Committee Chair
I am endorsing Lisa Gordon for Ward 6 City Council. Lisa is smart, hard-working, does her homework and is an independent thinker. I worked with Lisa when Newton’s elementary school strings program was going to be eliminated as part of budget cuts for NPS, and she worked collaboratively to prevent that from happening.
— Patrick Song, Mason-Rice Parent and Former PTO
As a member of an advocacy group of parents, students and alumni to save music programming from budget cuts at Newton South, I saw Lisa approach our discussions in an organized, data-driven, and consensus-building manner. Instinctively, she brought stakeholders together in a fostering enfironment, giving voice to everyone’s concerns, and creating the foundation of understanding necessary for a successful decision-making process. She did not take enough credit for her contributions to the group’s success at the time, but I have complete faith Lisa will continue to be an inclusive and collaborative leader as our next Ward 6 Councilor.
