Along with his education background, he understands government and has had the opportunity to work at the municipal and state level to develop consensus building skills, the art of negotiation, and compromise. Skills that make a good councillor. He is a great candidate and deserves your vote!"

18 years ago, as President of the Cambridge Teachers Association, Paul encouraged me to get involved in our union.
