Sumbul Siddiqui / City of Cambridge Mayor.

This video vignette is part of our In Central I Can campaign, a celebration of the Square’s can-do, entrepreneurial spirit. Central is a place of action and self-actualization, where people from all stations of life, across generations, go to make their dreams come true. Each person we profiled reflects on how this neighborhood has played a role in their personal or professional lives in some special way.

Madame Mayor's journey from a high schooler traversing Central Square to City Hall as the co-founder of the Cambridge Youth Council is a testament to her deep connection with the community. Now, with her office located at 795 Mass Ave, the very seat of city government, Central Square continues to hold special significance. It serves as more than a geographical hub; it's a symbol of her commitment to community service and an ongoing source of inspiration for making a positive impact on the lives of those she serves. Central Square is not just a location but a meaningful part of her civic journey and dedication to the well-being of the people she represents.
