SPECIAL ELECTION DEC 11

Ballot Question On Fuller Middle School

Elections are not over for voters in Framingham. A special election is scheduled for Tuesday December 11, 2018 on the question of replacing the Fuller Middle School.

There will be no early voting for this special election, just the one election day of December 11th.  Those who are unable to vote on the day of the special election can vote by absentee ballot.

At the October business meeting of the Framingham Democratic Committee the membership voted on a resolution to endorse a “YES” vote on this ballot question.  See the resolution at:
 FDC Resolution on Fuller.

 

Maria Robinson Making History

Robinson Will Be First Korean-American Serving On Beacon Hill

Framingham’s Maria Robinson was elected to represent the 6th Middlesex House seat. She had no opposition on the ballot in the November 6th election after winning the primary this past September by a wide margin.  (A write-in candidate did challenge her in the general election falling well short.)

Maria, who is of Korean heritage, will be the first person of color to represent the 6th Middlesex which is comprised of precincts 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 in Framingham.
