Sen. Bernie Sanders' "Our Revolution" movement created a firestorm among high-ranking Cantabrigians when it endorsed some of the 26 candidates for City Council in last week's elections.

Boston Globe columnist Dante Ramos described the endorsed candidates as "anti-development" and therefore exacerbating the problem of high housing costs. But supporters of those candidates say they are advocating affordable housing over unbridled development.
