The Ward 4 Dems collaborated with the Ward 5 and 10 Democratic Committees for a lively, issues-focused conversation on Thursday evening, July 13th via Zoom. We heard from the six candidates who are running positive, community-centered campaigns and offering substantive agendas and priorities that address the pressing issues of our city—from climate change and public health, to transportation, education and beyond They include Clifton Braithwaite, Ruthzee Louijeune, Julia Mejia, Erin Murphy, Bridget Nee-Walsh, and Henry Santana. All have demonstrated their commitments to engage in civil discourse.
