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. 
Diane Gomez, Ward 6 resident and NPS parent
