Born and raised in Cambridge, Richard Harding is a graduate of CRLS and Fitchburg State College.
Richard Harding has not run for City Council before. He was first elected to school committee in 2001, and was elected each term since with one exception (2007) for a total of 7 terms. He also worked for MA State Senator Steven Tolman and chaired his ward's Democratic Committee.
In Cambridge, he is part of several neighborhood organizations, primarily focused around equality and justice. For example, he is co-leader of Cambridge's NAACP branch.
I am a kid from Cambridge that grew up in the projects and worked at the State House.
I think that it’s a shame that Harvard only gives the city so little bit of resources towards affordable housing and other programs. You also have to figure out a way to house your own students. That takes away from the pressures on the housing market.
