“Steve Rideout is a listener, thinker and visionary who would make an excellent Mayor for Cambridge. During his term on the City Council, Steve earned the respect of the entire community with his preparation, creative approaches to problems and his ability to propose and achieve compromise on key issues. Steve supports and has a great appreciation for the City’s CM-Council form of government, having spearheaded the successful adoption of it,  and understands the important advocacy and consensus building role the Mayor now plays under this form. As a retired Virginia family court judge, Steve maintains the highest ethical integrity and has special place in his heart for the youth of our community. I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy.”
