Ward 6 Dems’ slate-blind endorsements include nine running for city councillor
From the Cambridge Ward 6 Democratic Committee, Oct. 20, 2015: The Cambridge Ward 6 Democratic Committee has announced its endorsements in the 2015 City Council race. The endorsed candidates (in alphabetical order) are: Dennis Carlone, Mike Connolly, Mariko Davidson, Jan Devereux, Nadeem Mazen, Marc McGovern, E. Denise Simmons, Minka vanBeuzekom and Romaine Waite.
In making its endorsements, the committee sought to recommend candidates who would bring the vision, skills and experience most needed to govern Cambridge at this time, regardless of slate affiliation.
“We particularly were looking at each candidate’s overall presentation as a committed progressive leader for Cambridge at this critical juncture in the city’s history,” said Ward 6 spokeswoman Linda Sophia Pinti.
As a local Democratic committee, Pinti said, it was limited to making endorsements of registered Democrats only, so failure to endorse candidates who are members of other political parties or are unenrolled should not be taken as any judgment, pro or con, of those candidates.
