The Tauber campaign checks in with this release:
Under threatening skies, over 150 enthusiastic supporters streamed into Dana Park in Cambridgeport on Sunday, September 9, to cheer as Nancy Tauber, a new school committee candidate, launched her campaign.
In addition to a crowd-pleasing intro by local entertainer and CPS supporter, Jimmy Tingle, Tauber was also lauded by educational activists Lisa Thurau and Laurie Sheffield. Mingling amongst the music, kids, and animated crowd were other local Cambridge politicians: City council candidates Henrietta Davis, Brian Murphy and Jonathan Janik came out to show their support as well as the other two new school committee candidates, Gail Lemily-Wiggins and Stefan Malner.
“It was great to see so many friends and CPS supporters here today. Like me, they are ready for a school committee that is committed to working together on issues that help the principals, teachers, and students be the best they can be. As a middle school teacher, I know what kids and teachers need to stay involved and be successful. My focus is to build an atmosphere of positive and constructive change,” Tauber said.
A veteran middle school teacher, educational advocate, and CPS parent, Tauber’s catchy and clever green apple logo and color-scheme was much on display from green balloons and green campaign bracelets to apple pie.
To help promote the spirit of the candidacy, children helped encircle the park green with flags they decorated with their wishes for the Cambridge Public Schools.
Overall, the event exemplified Tauber’s commitment to unity in Cambridge. She expressed her dedication to knowing citizens’ concerns, understanding what is working in Cambridge, and what needs to be improved to make Cambridge a great place to raise children.
