The BPS budget. I don’t think it’s balanced right, especially with transportation. All kids should have access to a free T pass. School should be free. If you have to pay to get there, it’s not. —Barbara Rosa, Office Manager, Jamaica Plain
The price of housing in our communities. And there’s too many drug addicts and people with mental illness on the streets.—Jasmin Hooks, Intake Coordinator, Dorchester
Rent control. They’re moving us out of this community. More and more people can’t afford to stay.—Kia, Student, Roxbury
Housing and education. As an organizer, I’ve seen hundreds of people displaced. Tito has been an ally fighting displacement. He’s the one who really cares about the people living here now. — Maria Cristina Blanco, Organizer, Jamaica Plain
The humanity of the city. Homeless-ness and addiction are on the rise. We need a mayor who really cares.
—Stuart Spina, Organizer, Chelsea
Housing. Everywhere you look you see new buildings, but they’re not saying who they’re building for. We know it’s not for us.—Vickie Wideman, Researcher, Dorchester
