Mayor Nominates 5 To 13-Member Framingham Fair Housing Committee

FRAMINGHAM – Mayor Yvonne Spicer has nominated five individuals to the Framingham Fair Housing Committee.

The Fair Housing Committee works to promote access to decent, safe and affordable housing for all segments of the community to the maximum extent feasible. The Fair Housing Committee accomplishes this through the study of issues, public education and advocacy.

The 13-member Committee has four members who are ex-officio. Those members are 1-year terms and represent the Human Relations Commission, the Community and Economic Development Department, the Planning Board and the Framingham Housing Authority.

Nathalie Jean was nominated for the 1-year Community & Economic Development ex-officio seat. The other three ex-officio seats are currently vacant.

The Mayor’s office did not release how many applicants there were for the Committee in submitting the nominations to the Framingham City Council.

The individuals nominated come from Districts 1, 2, 4 and 8.

Nominated are:

  • Hank Moran – District 2 for a 3-year term
  • Nicholas Petrini – District for a 3-year term
  • Katherine Michaud – District 4 for a 2-year term
  • Jeremy Bombard – District 1 for a 2-year term
  • Suzanne Howley – District 8 for a 1-year term

And there are four additional vacancies on the Committee.

SOURCE could not find an advertisement for the Committee on the City’s website, like the advertisements posted for for License Commission, Traffic Commission, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Board of Health, etc.

The City’s former public information officer issued a press release on the morning of June 1, announcing it was the last day to apply for City boards, committees and commissions.

The 11-member City Council still has to approve the appointment recommendations by the Mayor, before the individuals can be sworn in.
