I also recognize that every problem we talk about in Cambridge is because of a privatized campaign funding system. A lot of things are funded privately and so elected officials work for their donors. I propose publicly funded elections in Cambridge, I propose term limits, and I propose a longer cooling off period after you’re elected before you can work for a developer or lobbyist firm.

What are three specific new programs or changed you would make if elected?

1) Create a comprehensive scorecard for all affordable housing metrics and publish it on the city website. Track the impact of each initiative against its projection. This will keep us focused on programs that give solid results and disregard ones that don’t.
