Gregg on Housing

He has stated "build more, but build it union", but unclear what, where, or how.

We must use programs like co-housing to make living in Cambridge more affordable and respectable. All Cambridge residents should have affordable housing available to them.

Quotes by or about Gregg

When they think about my platform, they can think about the second bill of rights.

Gregg Moree, Our 'Platform?' video 2017

I gave Michael Capuano and Dan Ryan at Mr Capuano's office to discuss my interview of the Honey Fitz boat in 2012. I gave him information for where to contact people in Florida about that boat and information about the upcoming casino and how the people in Florida could help. Mr. Wynn's boat is the next yacht over and I gave them information about the contact information, too.

State Senator Sal DiDomenico received the same information a day later.

I gave this information with the mutual understanding that I would be involved in the negotiations, and profits, and receive a finder's fee from the building of the casino. ... Instead, Sal DiDomenico double-crossed me and snuck down to Florida...

I am looking for back pay, a percentage and share in the casino and a percentage of the 6 Towers in West Palm Beach.

The Harvard Crimson Gregg Moree (Profile)

It’s jobs and housing, jobs and housing. Internships, youth apprenticeship programs. We need to get these kids off the street. This is a community, we’re supposed to look out for each other. We don’t want anybody to fall through the cracks. There are people cut out to go to Harvard and MIT, and then there are people cut out just to go to work as a cop or a plumber, an electrician. And internships.

Well, the kids should be doing their homework, not smoking pot in Harvard Square, you know? I don’t favor marijuana. The kids basically should just do their homework, not think about getting high.

Wicked Local Cambridge ELECTION 2021: Cambridge City Council candidate statements

I also support career training, internships and apprenticeship programs in Cambridge. Since we have so much new construction, there should be a stipulation that all new construction hire a percentage of Cambridge residents in their work force and, also, have training and internship programs for young people from Cambridge.
