Bycle and street Safety pledge

I pledge to do everything in my power to support and accelerate the implementation of the citywide network of protected bicycle lanes as described in the Cambridge Bicycle Plan. I believe it should be completed within the next 5 years and at the very least that there should always be one bike lane under construction at all times, weather permitting, until the network is completed.

I support the Vision Zero Action Plan, which will focus the city’s efforts on identifying and eliminating the preventable causes of traffic fatalities and serious injuries. We must consider roadway design and operation, increase public engagement and education to involve all Cambridge residents, and strengthen enforcement of traffic rules and regulations to help make our City a safe place for all.

No Fossil Fuel Money

I pledge not to take contributions over $200 from oil, gas, and coal industry executives, lobbyists, and PACs and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.

Green new Deal: Sunrise Movement

I pledge that I will use my office to champion a Green New Deal in any and all ways, including but not limited to: developing and supporting Green New Deal registration and/or resolutions; building support amongst my colleagues for a Green New Deal; and publicly advocating for the necessity of a Green New Deal. In order to fully uphold this duty, I pledge to not take contributions over $200 from oil, gas, and coal industry executives, lobbyists, or PACs and instead prioritize the health of our families, climate, and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.
