Spilka has secured the votes to become President of the Massachusetts Senate

It was reported in local news that Framingham’s State Senator Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) has the votes to become President of the State Senate in 2019.  Karen Spilka was first elected to the Massachusetts Senate in 2004 after serving as State Representative in the House for several terms.  Over the years she has risen up the leadership ladder that includes her current role as Chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee.

This is an exciting moment for Framingham and the 2nd Middlesex Norfolk district that Karen represents in the Senate.
