Local candidates answer questions about YOUR issues

Cambridge and Somerville citywide elections are taking place on Tuesday Nov 3rd, and in the words attributed to a local political luminary, Tip O'Neil, Jr.: "All politics is local." In his autobiography, Man of the House, Tip wrote that these were actually the words of his father, who shared this wisdom with his son on the only election loss in his son's lifetime--a run for the Cambridge City Council. Had Tip lived only a few short blocks from where he did, it could have been the Somerville Aldermanic race that he lost.

In the spirit of all politics being local, we urge you to vote November 3rd and take the time to vote for those who best represent you and your issues. Elections on the city level are just as important for change as those nationwide so please make your voice heard.

In order to help you make you final election decisions, we sent a survey to Cambridge City Council candidates and Somerville Alderman candidates. Our brief questions focused on two of our membership campaign interests - climate and energy, and transportation. Attached are links showing the answers provided by our local candidates. Please take a minute to see where your candidates stand in this election season.
