The ABC AF Candidate Questionnaire is live since August 1, 2019. It is due by end of day on August 23rd and is a prerequisite for participating in our sister organization's Candidate Forum. AF will also email or mail it to every declared candidate.
The ABC AF Slate — RULES & EXPECTATIONS
The Action Fund will be supporting and campaigning for a slate of candidates this Fall. We believe the choice of a formal slate will most benefit the candidates who are a part of it, given Cambridge’s ranked-choice voting system.
Our dynamo candidates are those who are willing to take practical steps toward reducing housing costs and increasing housing equity — by increasing the amount of homes, including affordable housing, in transit-rich areas + by supporting government housing subsidies and programs.
Endorsees will support all the excellent candidates constituting the slate. Their website and all materials printed after endorsements are made must include the names (in alphabetical order) of all the other slate candidates, with the words, “Please vote for me #1, and the following candidates in the order of your choice.”
The Action Fund will also publish our own materials to support our candidates. We will pay for these ourselves. We will promote our candidates as aggressively as we are able, as an all-volunteer organization. Names will be listed alphabetically (or reverse alphabetically).
