Katjana's COVID-19 Recovery Plan
As mayor, I’ll continue to be guided by science, and public health data in making policies to keep our community safe. To make city hall more transparent, I’ll publish a dashboard to display the goals that we’ll set together for safety, so that our families and small, local businesses can plan ahead with current information. I started this process by submitting a legislative order to create a planning dashboard.
To recover from COVID19 I will take decisive action to help vulnerable families and children, students and teachers, workers and local businesses, owners and renters, and our local institutions.
My COVID19 Recovery Plan identifies as priorities that I will advocate as mayor; housing stability, food security, education recovery, and small business stimulus. I ask for help from every resident of Somerville for new ideas to improve this plan and our recovery. My priorities will first assist vulnerable residents and families with housing stability and food security assistance. Families will need support to get their lives and children’s education back on track. Also important, the small, local businesses that drive our local economy and enhance our quality of life need our help to survive and restart.
I’m confident that with the right leadership and with community support, we can recover from this pandemic and continue to make Somerville a city where we can all thrive together. To lead our recovery as mayor, I’ll follow science while prioritizing safety as we restart our schools, our institutions, and our local businesses, and help families get back on track.
