After months of careful thought and reflection, I have decided not to seek another term to the Cambridge City Council in November. As you can imagine, this was an extremely difficult decision to make. Serving this community on the Cambridge City Council has been an incredible honor, and representing my constituency has been deeply rewarding in so many unimaginable ways. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to serve alongside my colleagues, and the city’s amazing staff for the last 3 terms to make Cambridge a better place for all of our residents. Whether it was through large progressive policy changes, or direct constituent services, impacting the shape of our collective and individual futures was a gift that I will never be able to repay.
While I am not sure what the next chapter of my life looks like, I know that after a decade of committing to this community that I love, service will be a big part of what is next. I want to express my deepest gratitude to the voters of Cambridge for putting your trust in me for the past 6 years. I also want to publicly thank my family for supporting me in this endeavor without reservation, for always having my back, and for making a collective sacrifice to ensure I always had what was needed to be successful in this position.
I look forward to finishing out this term, and working hard to complete the initiatives that I have started with my City Council colleagues, local partners and city staff.
Again, thank you for your support, love, and shared commitment to our wonderful city!
