Michael Sullivan

Incumbent Michael Sullivan brings a family history of public service to the council -- his father, grandfather and uncle were all city councillors.

On education --

“Education is the one opportunity that can’t be taken away,”

Sullivan has stressed improving Cambridge’s school system in this election. MIT volunteers have a role in the system as tutors he said.

On affordable housing --

“We should all bear the

price of affordable housing,”

While against rent control because it discourages construction of additional housing, Sullivan proposes dealing with the housing crisis through government spending paid for by broad based taxation.
