"I can’t speak highly enough of Zoe. I got to watch her in action in 2019 — she brought together many different voices with many different opinions, and she listened to them, and it mattered. I've never seen someone better manage the process of finding stakeholders, building coalitions, and generally doing the hard work of governing. Zoe will bring vision, structure, and rigor to the Brookline Select Board."

"I got to know Zoe in 2019 through 5 months of intense sustainability projects. It was remarkable. I don't know that I've ever before witnessed someone who on the one hand could be disciplined and forceful enough to keep multiple concurrent processes moving forward, yet at the same time able to listen to everyone's views, to let everyone feel that they had been heard and that their opinions and suggestions were valued. Respect and discipline an impressive combination. Over that period, she succeeded in bringing groups of stakeholders that started off disagreeing with each other's priorities to a point at which they could all jointly support the resolutions and plans that they were presenting to the Town."

"I am enthusiastically endorsing Zoe Lynn for Select Board. I have attended a few of Zoe’s “listening sessions,” and I have found her consensus-building approach to be a refreshing change from the usual Brookline politics. I think that many in Brookline who have had a chance to hear Zoe agree. I had the opportunity to closely with Zoe in the fall of 2019... Zoe’s consensus-building approach was a large part of the success in passing groundbreaking climate legislation. Brookline needs a voice that can bring us together and stop the polarization that currently dominates our town dialogue. We also need strategic thinking and fiscal oversight, and Zoe has shown the knowledge and ability to execute on both of these strategies very effectively."
