Plan E is the root of fundamental problems, procedural and political, in our city. We need a charter change.

Ilan Levy, Ilan Levy, candidate for City Council today, calls Plan E root of fundamental problems

The biggest issue facing Cambridge is its form of government. I think that before we resolve the issue of how we govern ourselves, we cannot address the big issues that are facing Cambridge and cannot implement them in the current system of charter planning.
