Pictured above: Frank and the Newton Crime Commission recognizing Kayla Torres for her efforts to help small children, who are often the unseen victims of domestic violence. Seeing this as an opportunity to also encourage understanding between races, he offered a poem for her "Teddy Bear Campaign". From that poem, quoted by Frank, "Whether they are the same or different, it doesn't matter as such, Because whichever kind we have, we love it very much!"
Newton Community Experience - Volunteering in Newton for Many Years
Being a voice for community policing and safe streets would also not be new for Frank Wolpe since he currently serves as a Commissioner on the City of Newton / Crime Prevention Commission, with tenure of over 14 years, (6 years as the Chair) and an advisory member of the Newton Human Rights Commission.
Frank has successfully worked on the following local projects.
Other non-City posts of local responsibility have included chair of the Audit Committee for nearby Waltham Hospital, later merged into other hospital facilities; and chair of the Audit Committee for the Suffolk Franklin Savings Bank, later merged into Mutual Bank of Newton and downtown Boston.
