Davis has focused on energy and the environment, non-auto transportation, neighborhood preservation, bridging the digital divide, children’s health and quality living for seniors.[3] She has served as a delegate to the United Nations Climate Change Conference.[4] She has received significant news coverage for proposing a limit on the size of soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages served at Cambridge restaurants, similar to the New York City soft drink size limit.[5]
