Environment

Environment

I support climate justice and open space protection. Our climate is changing, but our city policies are not changing fast or aggressively enough to mitigate the past and future damage to our environment. My own neighborhood near Fresh Pond, Danehy Park, and Alewife Reservation is blessed with some...
Housing Equity

Housing Equity

It’s time for a new approach on affordable housing. The question of who can afford to live here – and how to prevent further erosion of the city’s socio-economic diversity while also preserving Cambridge’s strong sense of neighborhood and community – has no easy answers in an era of increasing income in...

However,...
Your Voice. Our City.

I am not taking money from large real estate developers. I am not a career politician, but if elected I will make serving on the City Council my full-time job. For most of the current councillors this is not the case; one even draws a second salary from the State, representing residents of Somerville...
