I’m Khizr Khan. Earlier this year, I met Nadya Okamoto, a current candidate for Cambridge City Council. After hearing about her platform focused on affordable housing, education equity, sustainability, and civic engagement, and looking into her personal and professional background, I had no doubt in my mind that she would make and incredibly effective representative. Nadya’s has immense capacity for empathy, passion for the issues facing Cambridge, capability as a leader, and love for Cambridge. If elected, she will be a voice for constituents who have not really had a seat at the table before, and this very much includes the younger demographic of Cambridge. Especially in this time of national uncertainty, we need to elect honest and ethical people who can protect and advocate for the civil liberties of all Americans. A vote for Nadya as your number one choice this November 7th is not only a vote for a more inclusive Cambridge, but a vote for a more progressive, energized, and transparent City Council. I urge you to vote Nadya Okamoto as your number one choice this November 7th.
