Our Revolution Cambridge looks forward to a 2020 that make substantial progress in meeting long-standing needs of Cambridge residents including: reducing displacement of residents and expansion of tenant protections; achieving net-zero fossil fuel use in all city buildings and all new commercial buildings; protecting our tree canopy; improving our public transit and other infrastructure; protecting immigrants; creating municipal broadband; reducing the educational achievement/opportunity gap; achieving universal pre-kindergarten; and moving toward replacing standardized testing in our schools with authentic assessments. It is with this in mind that we welcome the election of our endorsed candidates: returning city councillors Dennis Carlone and Quinton Zondervan; new councillors Patty Nolan and Jivan Sobrinho-Wheeler; returning School Committee member Emily Dexter; and new committee members Jose Luis Rojas Villarreal and Ayesha Wilson. These candidates share our vision for the city and we look forward to collaborating with them on making this vision a reality.

We would also like to thank the candidates that we endorsed who did not win: City Council candidates Charles Franklin, Ben Simon and Nicola Williams, and School Committee Candidates Elechi Kadete and David Weinstein. They too share our values and raised important issues with their campaigns, and we look forward to continuing to work with them. We would also like to thank all the volunteers and candidates who worked with ORC this year on these campaigns and all of our other work.

Finally, we congratulate all the members of the newly elected City Council and School Committee and welcome the opportunity to work collaboratively with each on shared goals.
