Boston would the the first major US City where all students graduate to college and career. By listening to students, educators and parents and eliminating structural barriers, Boston can eliminate the crisis of students dropping out of school and truly guarantee success for all. The goal of zero dropouts within 5 years will force all parties to address structural challenges.
Boston will be the first major city to end homelessness and guarantee a route to home ownership for all. A fast track process (where all permits are processed at the same time and boards and neighbors meet roughly concurrently) can be offered for builders committed to offering at least 1/3 of units to low income and 1/3 moderate income units (as measured by local, not regional incomes, ideally with an ownership path) who commit to hiring 75% locally a work force and subcontractor partners reflecting the local population. Loans will be guaranteed to homeowners who put in at last 500 hours of sweat equity into their homes, neighborhoods and communities.
Create a safer city through restarting another Boston Miracle, ending all preventable youth deaths caused by violence, suicide and addiction. Offer jobs, preferably with apprentice and career potential, to all youth wanting them. Address addiction and prevent suicides though making treatment on demand available, and offering proactively addressing trauma, and listening deeply to the needs they communicate.
