We are very proud that Sustainable Wellesley’s Leadership Team member Lise Olney was elected to the Wellesley Board of Selectmen on March 5th. After eight years on the leadership team of Sustainable Wellesley, Olney will be stepping down to focus on her new role in town government. She will no longer have a voting position on the Sustainable Wellesley team but plans to remain involved in our activities.

Lise joined the Sustainable Wellesley leadership team in 2011, after helping organize a Sustainability Expo and Bike Tour. She went on to work on many projects, advocating for renewable energy, organizing volunteers to work on the Wellesley plastic bag ban, tagging the  200+ gas leaks around town, and much more.

Lise says, “For me, the best part of working on the Sustainable Wellesley team was getting to know so many neighbors who are committed to making changes and helping to save our planet.”

The Sustainable Wellesley community is grateful for all of Lise’s contributions and thrilled to have someone committed to environmental stewardship on the Board of Selectmen. Her experience, shared decision-making style and thoughtfulness will strengthen our community on all fronts.
