  • Healthy Living

    “We are committed to making our city a great place to live, work, play and raise a family and we believe that ought to include a commitment to promoting a healthy and sustainable community by increasing access to fresh, healthy local foods and reconnecting residents with their food sources. Through programs like Shape Up Somerville, we've also maintained a focus on promoting healthier lifestyles and better health outcomes for all our residents, and especially our children.”                      ~ Joe Curtatone

  • Education

    “It’s the foundation of our future economic development plans; having a school system where everyone has that opportunity to succeed and achieve. And our expectation is, no matter where you are from, no matter what your income level, your status, you will have the same opportunity. My kids are in the school system, they’re getting a tremendous education in the Somerville public schools, but it is challenging in the urban school districts, and having leaders at the state and federal level that understand the different challenges that cities and towns, and where they are, and what they’re facing is critical to help us, to give us the tools to succeed.”  ~ Joe Curtatone

  • Social Issues

    “In a pluralistic society where we celebrate the fact that individuals can hold varying opinions, one thing should unite us: that we are treated equally in the eyes of our government. That no matter our sexual orientation, religious beliefs, ethnicity or otherwise, our country treats each of us the same: as a citizen.”  ~ Joe Curtatone

  • Economic Development

    "Over and over again, you’ve heard me say that our defining goal as a community is to make Somerville a great place to live, work, play and raise a family. But, for almost all of us, the achievement of that goal begins with the “work:” Without a decent job, the living, playing and raising-a-family parts are pretty hard to pull off. That’s why we’ve created the Somerville Jobs Advisory Committee, and why I look forward to working closely with them in the coming year to develop strategies that match local jobs to local workers in ways that benefit not only employer and employee, but the entire community. 4.5 percent unemployment is pretty good – but I’d like us to do even better."  ~ Joe Curtatone

  • Environment

    “It’s been a priority for us to decrease our community’s carbon footprint, increasing our energy efficiency and making Somerville a cleaner, healthier, more sustainable place to live, to work, or just to play.”  ~ Joe Curtatone
