FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham City Clerk has certified Gloria Pascual as a candidate for City Councilor At- Large. Pascual turned in 549 signatures exceeding the requirement of at least ten signatures from registered voters in each of the city’s nine districts.

“I appreciate every single person who signed my forms and in the process talked to me about Framingham and what is important to them,” said Pascual in a press release. “That’s what inspires and motivates me to take on issues and get things done. It’s about making progress for the people and
delivering results, which is why my campaign is built on putting “Progress Over Politics.”

Pascual is the Vice Chair of the Framingham School Committee. She was elected to serve as the District 8 representative with 62% of the vote. She works at UMASS Memorial Health Care as the Director of Volunteer Services, Community Relations, Spiritual Care, and the Telecommunications. She is bilingual and speaks fluent Spanish. She is the only at-large candidate who lives south of Route 9.
