Healthcare in one way or another affects every single one of us. I will do my best to make sure that all citizens are treated with fairness and decency, and respect.
Child Care is another issue that directly or indirectly affects every single one of us - if we have children or not. The costs are forcing many not to go back to work. The issue needs to be looked at and addressed.
Individuals have the right to live according to their owb gender/sexual identity. I also believe that everyone should be treated with respect and decency. I would like to make sure everyone feels safe in our city.
We are extremely lucky to live in a word-class city, with such educated and diverse teachers. I will work to support our education system for our children and their teachers.
Since Climate Change is such an immediate issue, I would like to be sure everyone is aware of what they can do, and make sure that our city stays informed and is concious of ways that we can help. I support a "transition to a low carbon energy system." (Enviormental League of Massachusetts)."
Additional issues include: Public Safety
Criminal Justice Income Inequality
The entire community has to work with housing issues. Everybody deserves a place to call home, but the option is not available to everyone. I will work to make our city affordable and accessible.
The homeless population in Boston is growing at a increasing rate. I believe that working with mental health counselors, the police, and other advocates can help our city to reduce this rate.
The homeless population in the U.S. is growing at a increasing rate. I believe that by working with mental health counselors, the police and other advocates, this helps our city in reducing the rate. I hope to reduce the number of individuals sleeping on the streets.
