Meetings To Be Held On Weeknights
The Framingham Democratic Committee is striving to find locations to resume in-person meetings. The ability to meet on Zoom was a huge benefit during the times of COVID, however there is a need and desire to resume live in-person meetings.
The previous location where meetings had taken place is no longer available. The Committee has struggled to find locations for Sunday evenings which is the most preferred time as indicated by the membership for many years.
The FDC is planning to hold its October and November business meetings on weeknights. These will be held a meeting rooms of the Framingham Public Library. Due to the library hours the start time for the meetings will be moved up by a half hour to 6:30pm.

FDC members and guests gathered at the home of City Councilor Adam Steiner for the Committee’s annual summer event. Also in attendance were DNC member Mel Poindexter, State Committee member Tina Poindexter, Senate President Karen Spilka and State Rep. Kate Donaghue. This gathering was a pot-luck featuring some tasty items donated by the FDC members.
The event also featured a brief business meeting to allow potential associate members to introduce themselves for consideration at a future meeting.
With upcoming municipal elections, several candidates were invited to address the gathering and discuss their respective campaigns.
The next FDC business meeting will be on September 17, 2023 and will be conducted remotely on Zoom. The FDC is continuing to find a meeting location post-COVID and expects to have meeting space for October and November.
