MY STANCE ON
As your Ward 5 City Councilor, Todd will make a real, practical impact on the issues that we care about the most: transportation and traffic, development and affordability, equity and opportunity. This campaign is about bringing transparency, creativity, open-mindedness, and new energy to city government.
WHEN SOMERVILLE THRIVES, ALL OF OUR COMMUNITY SHOULD TOO.
With Todd Easton as your Ward 5 City Councilor:
Future development will be subject to extensive community input as we grapple with breadth and scale, including existing local businesses.
Somerville’s transportation, traffic and parking master plans will be viewed through a new lens and prioritized as equitable, inclusive and safe.
Somerville’s diverse artist community, which was integral in contributing to the City’s vibrancy, creativity and humanity, will be supported through consideration in the planning process and creation of a cultural community development corporation.
Somerville’s most vulnerable populations will be helped without hostility, particularly our homeless, and those facing mental health challenges or substance use disorders.
Todd Easton will be a proactive, approachable, and progressive leader, bringing an inclusive and independent voice, energy and commitment to Somerville Ward 5. Todd will champion ideas to lift up those who call this home, addressing a changing population while respecting Somerville’s rich history.
