He has been an advocate for the creation of a multi use path along the Grand Junction Railroad that would connect neighborhoods, expand open space, and create safe biking and pedestrian opportunities for all ages.

As a resident of East Cambridge Tim looks forward to and has worked tirelessly to expand transportation options through the Green Line Extension and to ensure the new Lechmere Station and Northpoint Development is intergraded into the East Cambridge neighborhood.
