Change Is Coming to Ward 2.
Right now, the biggest development in Somerville is targeted for Union Square. This has the opportunity to bring improved public transportation, more local jobs, increased tax revenue, and more green and open public spaces - or it could worsen our affordability problem, driving rents even higher and pricing hardworking families and longtime local businesses out of Somerville.
With responsible development, we can reduce the residential real estate tax burden on homeowners, reduce rents for tenants, and make this a livable city for everyone.
We have to be vigilant and engaged to ensure that development benefits the community instead of only enriching the developers. It's time for us to get involved, and we need our voices heard loud and clear in City Hall as well as in our neighborhood meetings.
Somerville Can Lead the Way
Help Us Spread the Word
We are not accepting contributions from real estate developers.
We believe the Aldermen should represent residents. That means we're building this campaign without the powerful backing of real estate developers - and we need you to help us!
