FRAMINGHAM – The City of Framingham’s Mayor has re-nominated Susie Santone and Rose Quinn to the 7-member Framingham Disability Commission.
The nominations were made on June 4, and the 11-member City Council has 30 days to approve or reject the nominations.

Currently, she serves as the Assistant Director/CFO at the Metrowest Center for Independent Living, a nonprofit organization serving persons with disabilities in the MetroWest area, closely aligned with the mission and goals of the Disability Commission,” wrote the Mayor.
