  1. Interesting non-Cambridge side-note: I had a conversation today with a directors of a Somerville agency that was leading the CPA charge there. He said the margin of victory in Somerville was higher than any other community where CPA has been approved since its inception. I don’t have any data to back that up, but apparently it came from the statewide Community Preservation Coalition.
