FRAMINGHAM – City of Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer has nominated 2 women to the Framingham Cultural Council.
The Framingham Cultural Council awards grants to private and public/municipal organizations, and individuals for cultural projects that benefit Framingham residents. Funds for these projects are made available from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) and from donations.
Nominated are District 2 resident Debbie Kardon and District 6 resident Anita Danker.
Danker lives on Salem End Road and wrote in her application she is a “member of the
Framingham History Center and would recuse myself from any applications for grants from that institution.”
Danker said she is a “lifelong educator who has written articles related to the history of Framingham as well as a number addressing multicultural education and diversity published in peer-reviewed journals.”
Kardon wrote she lives in District 2 and on Hillside Street. She did not answer any other questions on the City application.
The nominations need to be approved by the City’s legislative branch of government, the City Council. A majority vote is needed. If no action is taken within 30 days, the nominations are automatically approved.
