Parks & Environment
- Protect and improve parks and open spaces
- Prioritize public transportation and efficiency
- Address our city’s climate change challenges
- Pursue innovative clean energy solutions
This is an issue very close to my heart, having lived around some of the most cherished parklands and urban spaces in the country. We are blessed to have a culture in our city that respects and protects its existing public spaces and I will continue to pursue and support new initiatives, partnerships and legislation to both improve our parks and open spaces while also seeking out new opportunities to designate new areas for public access.
Do you personally walk to destinations in your community? If yes, how often do you do so?
Yes. I walk everyday in my community! Also, I regularly do long walks around District 8 and across Boston. My longest walk is from the Fenway to Castle Island and back.
Do you personally travel by/ use public transit to get around? If yes, which trains and buses do you routinely use?
Do you personally bike in your community or commute by bike to other communities?
How will you improve the reach, frequency, and quality of public transit in your city/town?
