Quotes

Cambridge is not a high-rise city, tall buildings should be discouraged. Reducing building heights preserves Cambridge’s character.

Quinton Zondervan, answer to ABC question

I have advocated for the city’s climate vulnerability study, the plastic bag ban, and very recently the goal of 100 percent renewable by 2035.

What I am most proud of, however, is the zoning petition I co-authored in 2013 with Mike Connolly, which resulted in the pioneering Net Zero Action Plan.

Quinton Zondervan, Scout Cambridge

The city’s affordable housing policy over the past 20 years has been disastrous.
