102313i-Clean-SlateFrom the Clean Slate campaign, Oct 22: The first-time City Council candidates running as the Clean Slate – Dennis Carlone, Janneke House and Nadeem Mazen – are holding get-acquainted hours from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at danger!awesome, the Mazen-owned business at 10 Prospect St., Central Square, next to the Starbucks on Massachusetts Avenue.

“We are committed to working collaboratively, gathering community input and considering compromise when weighing the best solutions for Cambridge. We believe it’s time to bring a fresh approach to Cambridge politics, and voting for the slate is a simple way to make sure someone new gets on the City Council,” House said. “We’re combining forces because we have shared values and because it’s the easiest way to make sure one or more new, principled voices gets onto the council.”

The slate members say they are committed to affordable and middle-income housing; hands-on science, technology, engineering, art and math summer and out-of-school programs; a new master plan for development; and more.

“Join us to discuss hands-on and out-of-school education, mentorship opportunities and other Clean Slate issues,” House said.
