Having a Public Voice in Cambridge

Step One: Vote!

It’s fabulous, it’s the standard City of Cambridge Voter

Step Two:
If there’s an issue of concern to you, contact your Cambridge City Councillors. That’s why they’re there. They work for us!

Step Three:
Attend City Council Meetings. There’s a disturbing movement underfoot to limit the public’s involvement in discussion on civic issues. It’s been suggested that no time should be allowed to discuss issues which we present in our communications except two hours, once a month. It’s been further suggested that public discussion hours take place during normal work hours. Seems they don’t really want to hear our voice.

Cambridge City Council Meetings take place every Monday evening, at 5:30, at Cambridge City Hall (subject to change--call first). To get on the speaker list, you have to call 617-349-4280 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.--the earlier the better.)
