Articles about the candidate

The Harvard Crimson Cambridge City Council Candidates Debate Climate Change Approach at Forum

Jivan Sobrinho-Wheeler argued that his proposal to eliminate public transportation fares will help reduce emissions in the city.

"Our campaign has the ambitious goal of making subways and buses fare free by 2025," Sobrinho-Wheeler said. This initiative is motivated "to reduce car emissions, and because working class neighborhoods, communities of color depend on buses and subways."
