STRONG PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Lance has advocated for our public schools for more than a decade. As Alderman, he will continue to ensure that every Somerville child has access to quality schools and that our teachers have the resources they need to succeed.
EXPANDED OPEN SPACE
Lance understands how important green spaces and public parks are to our environment and community. Lance will work to improve our existing fields and parks and will fight to create new publicly accessible open spaces citywide.
AN AFFORDABLE COMMUNITY
Families should not be forced to leave their homes due to rising costs and increased property taxes. Lance will work with local residents to ensure that our seniors can afford to stay here, young families can raise their kids here, and newcomers can build a life here.
As Alderman, Lance will seek to set aside resources to address crumbling roads and repair public buildings. Lance will work with local leaders to obtain the funds we need to improve the status of our streets and structures.
SMART ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Lance knows that local businesses drive the economy of Davis Square and beyond. Lance will fight for small business owners while maintaining the character of our neighborhood and enhancing our quality of life.
OUR PROGRESSIVE VALUES
Lance has been a committed progressive leader his whole life, and knows that our community must continue its leadership in ensuring that all of our neighbors are afforded equal rights, protections, and dignity.
