FRAMINGHAM – If nothing else, the past 21 months has taught us how critical it is for leaders to collaborate. Roles and lines were blurred on occasions when all hands needed to be on deck. In the face of a global pandemic that had disastrous consequences on many Framingham families, many elected officials were called to act beyond their traditional duties to ensure we all would make it through this. It has been an intense experience and, understandably, many have decided not to seek reelection.
While we anticipate and hope and pray that such a crisis never falls on us again, there is one candidate I can trust in the face of uncertainty: Noval Alexander.
Noval has shown our district how dedicated he was when he served as our School Committee Member. Noval is always one of the first people to roll up his sleeves and get to work. From shoveling a constituent’s walkway so he could cast his vote for the new Fuller Middle School, to leading playground builds in our community, to addressing constituent concerns in a timely manner; Noval is not afraid to do the work.
There is no doubt in my mind that Noval will be an asset to our City Council, even when there is no crisis. He is level headed, calm, and diplomatic
As Framingham turns a new leaf in January, Noval will contribute to a more collaborative and respectful form of government.
During his tenure in the Framingham School Committee, Noval showed us time and time again that it is possible to disagree with your peers in a respectful manner. He voted with his conscience and always provided reasoning on more controversial votes without frivolous abstentions.
As his School Committee successor, I look to the candidate I know will be a collaborative asset to our district and hope District 5 voters join me in casting my vote for Noval Alexander on November 2nd.
Framingham School Committee member District 5
