Another City
Council Candidate

I hope those of you who plan to vote in the Cambridge City Council election on Tuesday, November 3, will consider giving me, James Williamson, your #1 Vote.

I know that you have your own candidate from MIT whose name will appear on the ballot this year, but if you are interested enough in Cambridge to take the trouble to register to vote here, then I believe you deserve the opportunity to consider other qualified candidates as well.

I have a Candidate Video at the CCTV (Cambridge Community Access Television) website. The Cambridge Chronicle has a useful “Election Guide” at their website, as well. There are also links to “candidate web pages” at the useful Cambridge Civic Journal website, hosted by a lecturer in math at Harvard named Robert Winters.

Some years ago I worked to call attention to the plight of Lori Berenson, a former MIT student who remains unjustly imprisoned in Peru. I helped her parents bring their message about Lori to President Clinton when he gave the Commencement Address at MIT.

I will bring this same commitment to MIT and your community to the City Council if elected, and I need your #1 Vote. Thanks!

James M. Williamson
