FRAMINGHAM – Former City Councilor and 20-year Framingham Selectman kicked-off his mayoral campaign tonight in front of historic Village Hall.
With endorsements from State Rep. jack Patrick Lewis, State Rep. Maria Robinson, and Framingham School Committee Chair Adam Freudberg, Sisitsky told a crowd of just over 100 people said “my vision for the next four years is a City government that works in a cooperative, innovative, civil, and urgent way to increase support in the areas of education, the environment, seniors, pandemic recovery, and better government and civic engagement.”
Sisitsky, whose wife Robin introduced him, said “Framingham has a dire need for thoughtful, strategic planning. common sense government, and critical improvement throughout all areas of city operations.”
Sisitsky, 75, lives in Nobscot, and was a sitting Selectman when Framingham transitioned from a Town to a City, and was the first-ever City Councilor from District 1, until he chose not to seek re-election.
Mayor Yvonne Spicer held a private virtual fundraiser to kick off her re-election campaign for Mayor earlier this month. The news outlet was not invited to attend. Her campaign submitted a press release announcing her re-election bid the next day.
Nomination papers for Mayor will be available on June 1.
Spicer and Sisitsky are the only two announced candidates for mayor. The election will be November 2.
