Also, we have to have more diversity on the council. I think it’s very important that we have more women, and that we have more women of color. I think someone who is a qualified public attorney who happens to be a Muslim woman of color, you talk the talk for diversity and all that stuff, but this is a time that we can actually make it happen.

We also need to make ride-hailing/ride-sharing programs easier to use and less expensive for Cambridge seniors.
