Message from Mayor Davis

Mayor Henrietta DavisIt is not easy to make the decision to leave behind being a Cambridge City Councillor, a job I have loved, but after 8 years on the school committee and 18 years on the City Council-26 years in all– I’ve decided not to seek reelection. Thank you to my colleagues – past and present – and to the people of Cambridge for supporting me all of these years.

This recent term as Mayor has been especially gratifying. Despite the obvious challenges, there were many great days and opportunities to make a difference and to continue the mission of making Cambridge a better place.

I’m not planning to leave all the issues behind – I’ll still be fighting for equity and opportunity for all Cambridge citizens (especially young people), and making sure Cambridge continues to become a model for a healthy, sustainable city, and a community that is welcoming and supportive to all our residents.

But after thirteen successful elections I’m putting away my yard signs and leaving the campaign events to others.

I will miss walking up and down our beautiful streets and the face-to-face meetings with Cambridge residents at their homes and hearing their ideas and concerns.

I’m grateful to the voters of Cambridge who have given me the opportunity to serve, to have a career through which I could follow my passion, and make a difference locally and beyond. With six more months as Mayor, I look forward to serving the rest of the term, fully engaged. There’s a lot left to do this year. Then, the time will come to head in a new direction. Thank you Cambridge for what will be 26 great years.

-Henrietta
