Tom Elkind

 
I moved to Waban in 1979 with my wife, Lise, and my two now grown children. I was a lawyer in Boston for 40 years, and am now a part-time mediator and arbitrator. Lise was a Spanish teacher at Newton South for many years. 
 
Since 1980 I have been on the board of the entity that oversees the Newton Commonwealth Golf Course for the City, and I was President of the board for 13 years. I have served as a member of the board of the West Suburban YMCA, and as President of the board. I now serve as a trustee of the YMCA. I also am the Treasurer of Waban Common, Inc., the entity that has worked with the City to create Waban Common.
 
I enjoy many sports. I play golf at a Newton Commonwealth, squash at the YMCA,  tennis at the Windsor Club, and bicycle with Bike Newton.
