It was an amazing afternoon last Sunday as I went to the Rindge School for the Cambridge Democratic Caucus day! There were over 150 people there and I am very happy to say that I was elected as a Democratic delegate in Ward 11. It was a tough vote, but I managed to get the nomination!
This is an important step as we hope to push many progressive legislative bills. Specifically, we are focusing on the Progressive Mass Bills. Even more specifically, The Safe Communities Act is of outmost important as we protect our vulnerable communities; in fact, 37% of Cambridge residents are foreign, including myself.
While many are disillusioned with the Democratic Party's primary process last year, I feel as though this is the best outlet to locally make sure that we do all we can in Massachusetts. While many consider our state to be very progressive, the fact is that we are not. Our last 4 speakers of the house (all Democrats) are in jail on corruption... we have work to do here.
