Alicia Bowman has been a wonderful advocate for progressive policies in the city of Newton. She has brought to the role of city councilor a longstanding commitment to and understanding of transportation and infrastructure issues. She has fought hard to make our city live up to its promise as a community that effectively serves the needs of people of different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds, whether the issue is policing or housing. Newton is a better, more accessible place for the work of this dedicated public servant. I strongly endorse her campaign for reelection.
