I’d like to work with you to build the community we want.

Priorities for Ward 5 and Somerville

Make Somerville work for you.

Work closely with Ward 5 residents and city government to deliver effective city services.

Protect our neighborhoods.

Manage development wisely for the benefit of residents.

Preserve Somerville’s character and diversity.

People who grew up here, work here or put down roots here should be able to find affordable housing and good local jobs.

Enrich our environment.

Extend the Green Line and the Community Path. Balance cars and parking with walking and biking.

Keep families in Somerville.

Continue to improve our public schools. Strengthen our public libraries. Build more parks and fields.

Make city government fair, honest, and open.

Decisions and appointments should be based on what’s best for the community, not on personal or business relationships.
