FRAMINGHAM – Adam C. Steiner, 43 McAdams Road, formally announces his candidacy for re-election as District 3 City Councilor (precincts 4 and 7) in the upcoming Framingham city election.
“It has been an honor to represent district 3 on the City Council for the past
year and a half. We have made important progress in establishing a first city government that serves all of Framingham’s residents, but the work has only begun,” said Steiner. “I encourage residents to continue reaching out to me with your concerns for district 3 and the entire city.”
I am proud of the work I have done on the City Council so far – all of it in
collaboration with the other committed members of the Council.
As Chair of the Education subcommittee, guided the creation of the
City Framingham Youth Council
Helped to craft a first City budget with an overall 0% increase in
the tax levy as a member of the finance subcommittee
Served on the Marijuana Task Force, which set the guidelines for
the adult-use marijuana industry in Framingham
Specifically, there are five key areas of progress that I will continue to work
to address on the City Council:
To recognize and build on Framingham’s unique strengths. Too oten the dialogue focuses on our challenges. However, there are so many positives to build on, including successful new restaurants downtown, a diverse population, an award-winning library including a new bookmobile, and an excellent school system.
To continue working toward a collaborative relationship with all elements of city government and administration.
To demand development projects, including at Nobscot Plaza, that not only work for developers, but also for residents. These need to be addressed with an open mind as well as with wariness toward unfettered development. Above all, owners of empty plazas need to be held accountable for the condition of their properties.
To push for a municipal budget that identifies efficiencies in the way we do business without negatively impacting direct services to residents, particularly those serving senior citizens and the youth who represent Framingham’s future.
To preserve and expand community amenities including our walking/biking trails and parks.
