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.
