I am a candidate for State Representative for the 10th Middlesex District (Waltham, Watertown & Newton). Right now, we have an opportunity to act on crucial issues. This includes: enacting bold climate goals and a 100% clean energy economy, building a 21st-century transportation system, standing up for our vulnerable residents and our immigrant neighbors and fighting for a democratic and transparent process in the legislature.
I am proud to have been endorsed by 350 Mass Action, the Massachusetts Chapter of the Sierra Club and Mass Peace Action. These effective organizations embody my values and priorities. I will work tirelessly with the Sierra Club, 350 Mass Action and all environmental advocates to pass effective environmental legislation and do it a way that adds jobs to our already significant green energy economy.
Ma Peace Action is an organization that works to prioritize public spending on human needs and environmental protection rather than excessive military spending. I believe that as a Commonwealth we must build the political will to confront the chronic problems of environmental pollution, an economy based on fossil fuels and exploitation, systemic racism and the underfunding of programs that support human needs, including adequate housing and quality health insurance.
In my 7 years as a city councilor I have been an effective, dependable leader and advocate on difficult problems facing my community. I have the energy, ability and the collaborative spirit to do the same as your State Representative.
Please vote on September 1st. The Primary is the critical election and the winner will go to the General Election unopposed.
