Statements from 2015 election:

As Cambridge grapples with widening income inequality, intense development pressure and the prospect of climate change, I will advocate for a sustainable rate of growth that preserves livability and neighborhood character. I support increasing the amount of affordable housing in all new development, improving bike, pedestrian and transit infrastructure, and protecting open space and local retail. I also support funding universal pre-K and implementing Net Zero.

I am not accepting campaign donations from large real estate developers.

If elected, I would make serving on the Council my full-time job.
