Man Elected President Of Brookline League Of Women Voters

Joel Shoner is a man. Make no mistake about it.
He has a beard. He is bald. He keeps pens, and a pair of eyeglasses, tucked in his left front shirt pocket. And he knows how to give a good stern look when the subject turns to his new seemingly oxymoronic title.
Shoner, 61, is the new president of the Brookline League of Women Voters.
``It shouldn't be the focus," he says, ``just because I'm a male and I'm president of the league."

Having lived just over the town line from Brookline for a year or so back in college, I can't say this surprises me too much.

``I think it shows openness for change, and a willingness to join forces with those who have similar goals," says Blom. ``And I think Joel understands the mission of the league and the direction we should be going. He shouldn't be excluded just because he doesn't happen to be a woman."

She went on to add that, while Shoner may technically be a man, he certainly doesn't have any balls.
