FRAMINGHAM – As I’ve closely followed our new City government, I’ve seen greatly needed changes happening in Framingham.  

First of all, our Mayor is supporting our police department’s use of important tools for monitoring policing reform, which include helping them retrain toward de-escalation and toward the duty to intervene.  She has also separated the Framingham Police Department from restrictions of civil service, thus allowing more diversity in recruiting.  

Other ways Mayor Spicer is moving Framingham forward are: hiring our first climate sustainability coordinator, planning toward a new Fuller Middle School, supporting the Community Preservation Act, improvements in water & sewer, roads, recreation, environmental clean up, and excellent public health services.

All of these developments, including an outstanding pandemic response are attracting residents to choose Framingham as their new home.

Among my favorite enhancements comes from our Mayor’s compassion – creating a team to reach out to more than 7,000 seniors to find those in need, and connect them to help they hadn’t yet known was available. 

Mayor Yvonne Spicer has enhanced our City in many ways that matter.  You can imagine more improvements, and you can bring them on with her reelection on November 2nd!
