Articles about the candidate

The Harvard Crimson Gregg Moree (Profile)

It’s jobs and housing, jobs and housing. Internships, youth apprenticeship programs. We need to get these kids off the street. This is a community, we’re supposed to look out for each other. We don’t want anybody to fall through the cracks. There are people cut out to go to Harvard and MIT, and then there are people cut out just to go to work as a cop or a plumber, an electrician. And internships.

Well, the kids should be doing their homework, not smoking pot in Harvard Square, you know? I don’t favor marijuana. The kids basically should just do their homework, not think about getting high.

Wicked Local Cambridge ELECTION 2021: Cambridge City Council candidate statements

We must use programs like co-housing to make living in Cambridge more affordable and respectable. All Cambridge residents should have affordable housing available to them.

I also support career training, internships and apprenticeship programs in Cambridge. Since we have so much new construction, there should be a stipulation that all new construction hire a percentage of Cambridge residents in their work force and, also, have training and internship programs for young people from Cambridge.
