Brookline voters today approved Question 1, which would raise property taxes to rebuild the Pierce School. Voters also approved Question 2, an operating override that town officials say will help fill gaps in the budget.

Question 3, which would cap the number of cannabis stores in Brookline at four, also prevailed.

Paul Warren and John VanScoyoc were elected to two open seats on the Select Board, winning narrowly over Arden Reamer.

In the race for an open one-year School Committee seat, Natalia Linos won over Christopher Mutty. And for the Brookline Housing Authority board, Susan Cohen prevailed over Kimberley Richardson.
