“When I think about Cambridge, I think about the next 15 or 30 years. I want to make sure that we are putting in place the policies, structures, and systems to ensure that our city remains a vibrant, racially and economically diverse city that welcomes people of all backgrounds. I am focused on making change that reflects the needs of the modern, urban family and addressing the challenges intensified by our booming economy. We are so lucky to live in Cambridge. Let’s work together to make it even better.”
Adriane is proud to call Cambridge home and is dedicated to serving its residents across the city. With experience spanning the corporate, nonprofit, and public sectors - as well as a new mom - she brings a unique and valuable perspective to the city council. She is focused on the long-term vision for Cambridge and knows that a broad coalition of community members - from civic leaders and residents to business executives - is critical to making sure that everyone has access to opportunity and bringing about the change that our 21st century economy demands.
Raised by a single mother in South Florida and now with a family of her own, Adriane knows that it truly takes a village to raise children and see them succeed. From an early age she saw the power and promise of high-quality daycare and after-school programs - for kids’ intellectual growth, family financial stability, and women’s empowerment. Today she wants to make sure that all families can thrive in the city.
As a candidate for Cambridge City Council in 2017, Adriane earned the endorsement of A Better Cambridge Action Fund as their top-ranked new candidate for her smart growth and affordable housing policies. She was also named one of the “most promising new candidates” by StreetsPac MASS and supported by the Cambridge Bicycle Safety group for safe roads, sidewalks, and plazas.
Adriane has lived in Cambridge for nearly ten years. Today she resides in North Cambridge with her husband and young son where they try to spend as much time outdoors. When she’s not at community meetings or exploring city parks with her son, you’ll likely find her cycling country roads, running along the Charles, hiking mountains, and playing tennis.
