Several Bylaws Amendments Passed Including Name Change
At the June 24, 2018 business meeting Framingham’s local Democratic committee changed its name from “Framingham Democratic Town Committee” to “Framingham Democratic Committee”.
This name change was one of several bylaw amendments that were taken up as part of the business meeting agenda.
The Committee changed its name removing the word “town” as Framingham changed its charter from town to city in 2017. However the Committee did not adopt the name “City Committee” as its organizational structure will still be based on Chapter 52, Section 2 of the Massachusetts General Laws. The City of Framingham is not structured into wards which is required in order to have the structure of a Democratic City Committee.(Read more…)
