Rep. Lewis represents all of Ashland and one-third of the Precincts in Framingham.
” It was a great honor to again be sworn in to represent and advocate for Ashland and Framingham in the Massachusetts House,” said Rep. Lewis to SOURCE. “I look forward to the year ahead and am committed to continue working closely with local leaders to ensure that our families have their voices heard on Beacon Hill.”
