LETTER: Framingham City Council Candidate Says He Won’t Accept ZBA Re-Appointment

I am a candidate for City Councilor in District 1 and an alternate on the Framingham Zoning Board of Appeals.

The ZBA alternate positions are one year terms and require re-appointment each year unlike the voting member terms of 3 years.

If elected I would rule out seeking re-appointment to the ZBA.

I would serve the remainder of my term or until a replacement is appointed by the Mayor.

I would only stay on the board if asked to stay on while a replacement is found.

I expect the Council seat will occupy a great deal of time and will require my full attention.

Once seated on the council I would NOT vote to approve someone who was on the Council for another appointment and I would vote in favor of a measure that would prohibit a member of the Council from serving in an appointed position approved by the Council.

Joe Norton

Candidate For City Council District 1
