A Special Message From The Chair

FDC Chair Appreciates The Efforts Put In For 2018

As we begin to decompress and sit back and take in the results of our hard work over the past several months, I want to take a moment to thank those who played such a key role in helping to reshape the dialog that has driven our nation so far towards the wrong direction since that horrible day two years ago when all common sense and decency left our way of life.

I have often said that the best dividend that the Trump administration left for Framingham is our deeply committed and exceptionally dedicated cadre of new faces and friends who have chosen to be energized, rather than defeated by this Administration’s hateful and divisive antics!  In this iteration of political warfare, we saw many of the faces that emerged to help us during the last presidential election, and got to meet so many new people who came out to help us make change.

Whether it is a person who helped us knock doors and ring phones for the first time, or whether it is a veteran of the last presidential cycle, or a seasoned regular worker-bee who has canvassed for decades, Framingham was blessed by those from the rolls of our membership lists as a democratic Committee.  Most of the Framingham Democratic Committee’s members did everything they could from put out a lawn sign to travel to Maine to help Jared Golden and Janet Mills, or all the way Texas to sleep wherever a fellow Democrat would host them to work for Beto. Framingham was well represented, and I cannot thank you enough!

It is through grass-roots organization and endless energy, that our party took back the House, and, as a result, is now in charge of any and all federal expenditures, oversight investigations, and revealing the truth to the American people.

With the exception of the gubernatorial race, all of our Constitutional Offices remain Democratic, and our state delegation will always be looked at with respect for their roots and their intellect.  While Maria has a steep learning curve ahead of her, I can think of nobody who is better mentally equipped to take on the challenges she will be met with from day one on the Hill. And, who better than the Senate President to have as a sister-in-arms and a mentor?

I will close by saying that I could not be more proud of our membership for the tireless advocacy, energetic action and incredible heart shown over this midterm political period.

Thank you all!

Beverly Hugo, Chair
Framingham Democratic Committee
