Candidate Statement: Peter Bruce
As President of the Area Council, I’ve worked hard to express opposition to overly large and expensive developments, and thus represent the will of most Newtonvillers. I was lead author and analyst of the NAC Survey, and stood up to the Establishment when they tried to ignore its findings. In the future, I’ll urge the NAC to monitor and compare the realities of new developments with their promises.
I ask for your vote so I can continue to represent you, inform you about what’s going on in the city, and make the City more responsive to your needs.
As a cab driver, canvasser, and former political science professor with a Ph. D from MIT, I bring critical thinking and a detailed knowledge of Newton’s people, traffic, and parking systems to my work as councilor. I’m also a U.S. Army veteran.
