Councilor Lisle Baker Baker Councilor for Ward 7

Welcome! A theme of my almost 40 years of service on the City Council has been to help preserve and enhance our community and to help solve problems for constituents.

I invite you to call me at home at 617-566-3848, e-mail me at, or write to me at Newton City Hall, 1000 Commonwealth Ave., Newton, MA 02459.

In the meantime, I also invite you to learn more about the City Council and how I might be helpful to you, as I have other citizens for three decades as the Ward Councilor for Ward Seven. (Ward Seven is roughly the area of Newton east of Centre Street south of Church Street, east of Grant Avenue, and east of Glen Avenue).
