FRAMINGHAM – City of Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer sent out an email from her political campaign today, May 4.
“These past few months have been some of the most difficult in many of our lives. The COVID-19 crisis has left us all uncertain about the safety of our loved ones, our own health, and about what the future holds,” wrote Spicer.
“In Framingham we have lost 33 of our friends and neighbors. We have over 1,000 cases of COVID-19 and while 274 people have made a recovery, many more of our loved ones are still sick. This has been a trying time for us all,” wrote Spicer.
|The Mayor wrote in her campaign email “I’m writing now to check in on you – and to invite you to connect with the City of Framingham in whatever way is most comfortable for you right now. I’m hosting a “Zoom Community Hour” tomorrow focusing on maintaining good mental health during this pandemic. The conversation happens on Tuesday, May 5th, from 5-6pm with local experts.”|
City Hall and public buildings like the libraries and the Callahan Center have been closed since mid-March, and the earliest they can re-open is May 18.
The Mayor’s campaign email also encourages supporters to visit the City website for resources on food insecurity, business support, and more. The City’s seal and website is posted in the campaign newsletter.
|“We are not through this public health emergency yet, but I have been inspired by how our community has come together despite the pain and uncertainty,” wrote Spicer to her supporters.|
|“It is an honor to represent you and to work every day together with you and the City’s leadership team to keep Framingham safe and secure while providing excellent service,” concludes Spicer from her firstname.lastname@example.org|
