Steve Winslow announces candidacy for Councillor-at-Large
Bike to the Sea Co-Founder, former School Committee Member, and community
development expert pledges to work with residents to move Malden forward
oday I announcemy candida-
cy forMaldenCity Councillor-
at-Large. I want to be a progres-
sive, community‐focused voice
on the Council and hope to earn
your vote in November.
Maldonians probably know
me best as co-founder of Bike
to the Sea, theMalden nonprof-
it that has worked since 1993
to make the Northern Strand
Community Trail and Bikeway
Community Garden a reality.
In my professional capacity as
a manager of community de-
velopment projects for more
than 20 years, I have run large
and small projects from start
to finish. From articulating a vi-
sion to planning, gathering fi-
nancial and material resourc-
es, navigating legal require-
ments, budgeting, and execut-
ingon the ground, I knowexact-
ly what it takes to make things
happen. And as someone who
cares deeply about the city that
has been my home for 28 years,
I want to usemy experience and
skills to move Malden forward.
Smart development will be one
key focus of my work – includ-
ing affordable housing, effec-
tive public transportation, and
a safe environment for people
who drive, bike, or walk.
As a product of public schools,
as well as a parent and grand-
parent, I know that public ed-
ucation is a critically important
part of our City and our democ-
racy. Having served on the Mal-
den School Committee from
2007 to 2013, I am fully aware
of the practical challenges our
schools face. I will continue to
work hard for equitable funding,
smaller class sizes, strong lead-
ership, and the best education
we can provide for every one of
our children.
Over the past several years, I
have been proud to work with
Preserve Malden to ensure that
Malden has funds to protect
its historic treasures, improve
parks, and provide affordable
housing. As Councillor‐at‐Large,
I will seek to engage the entire
community in making sure we
spend these funds on projects
ofmaximumbenefit to residents
today and tomorrow.
My experience – as an attor-
ney, community development
project manager, and School
Committee member – has giv-
en me a profound appreciation
for what we can accomplish
when we work together. Mal-
den’s diverse mix of residents
enriches our City, generating
enormous potential for creative
ideas and innovative solutions. I
plan to tap this potential inways
that benefit everyone. I will be
a champion for every Malden
resident and neighborhood,
and will ensure that residents
have a strong voice in key deci-
sion‐makingprocesses. Govern-
ment at every level has an im-
portant role to play in enriching
our lives. At a timewhendivisive
politics andpolicies are generat-
ing fear and worry, I pledge to
be a progressive Councillor‐at‐
Large who partners effective-
ly with colleagues, communi-
ty groups, and residents to ad-
dress concerns and set Malden
on the right path.
I hope I canearn your vote and
become your voice on the City
Council. I look forward to meet-
ing you in the coming months,
hearing your thoughts, and
sharing my ideas for how we
can keep Malden moving for-
ward together. To learn more

it my Facebook page, Winslow
