FRAMINGHAM – District 6 Framingham City Councilor Mike Rossi will not seek a second term in 2019.
In total, seven of the current 11-member City Council will not run for re-election.
“Having been part of Framingham’s first City Council has been a rewarding experience. As my involvement in Framingham’s past goes long and deep in many areas of volunteering , I find it’s time for me to hit the pause button,” said Rossi. “There are some amazing people out there looking to get involved that will bring fresh ideas to the Council . Therefore I will not be a candidate for Council after my current term expires.”
Rossi said the “transition from town to city has not been without some early
missteps. Working together has not been the first order of business for the new city government. While progress has been made in limited areas, much business remains gridlocked due to range wars over juristiction of the legislative vs the executive branches of the city government.”
He said his “hopes are high that in areas where consenus can be achieved, working together will benefit the new city. Conflicts will exist, how they are resolved will set the tone for the future.”
“I am confident that Framingham’s new city government will navigate
through this early turbulance and find its true course,” said Rossi.
“Thank you, District 6 voters for giving me this opportunity to serve on
the historic first City Council,” said Rossi in a statement.
