Newsletter #4

Happy 4th of July!

Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for the campaign kickoff!

I also want to give a special thank you to all of you that have made a donation to help us continue building momentum and making this all possible.

Donations are now VENMO COMPATIBLE! 
Please fill out the form below before contributing via Venmo @votenadya.

With your help, our grassroots campaign continues to grow everyday! 
Every vote, every dollar counts.

Campaign Kickoff Overview

It was absolutely empowering to see the community come together around common goals for our city. The room was filled with everyone from local community leaders to former councillors and candidates, but also the faces of a new group of young voters – a demographic that we need to engage in our local elections.

In the past three weeks our team has knocked on over 3,000 doors to spread word about our platform. With this level of energy, enthusiasm, and support at the grassroots level, the one thing we need is the resources to keep this momentum going and growing. With rank-choice voting, every contribution AND every vote truly matters.

Come November 7th, I’ll be asking for your #1 vote, but the best way you can support now is by getting involved and making a contribution of up to $1000. Even if you donate just $10, you are joining a community and contributing to a movement. Donations give voice to the perspectives of our residents who need it most.

Cambridge Constituents

Cambridge Constituents is a photography campaign that shares the voices of our constituents. The interactions we have with other Cantabrigians directly influence our policy platform.

“An issue in Cambridge is the way institutions like Harvard or MIT force their way into residential neighborhoods and displace longstanding Cambridge families, there should be more boundaries for institutions in terms of construction and expansion.” - Owen Gallant (CRLS Graduate)

Response: With developments, like Volpe, I believe the institutions in Cambridge need to maintain open communication with residents and businesses in the area. In addition to displacing longstanding residencies, construction also disrupts everyday transportation in streets. Being a historic, college town with narrow streets, Cambridge has a tremendous amount of bikers. I support investing in safer streets for those who ride bikes by adding more designated lanes and speed bumps where appropriate. This goal also applies to making the streets safer and more accessible for those who walk, need parking, and take public transportation.
