FRAMINGHAM – In his uplifting inaugural speech, Mayor Sisitsky emphasized his administration’s commitment to openness and transparency, saying that he intends “to bring a spirit of cooperation, respect, and civility back to City Hall.” Citing a “dire need for better government and civic engagement,” the new Mayor praised the City Council as a co-equal branch of city government and that heb would “work with them to help achieve their goals for the betterment of the City.”
As the District 8 member of the first City Councilor, I experienced first-hand the lack of civility and cooperation Mayor Sisitsky addressed. Political factions on the Council obstructed the positive changes we envisioned for our new city.
On January 11, 2022, the residents of District 3 will have a unique opportunity to help our new Mayor restore civility and cooperation back to City Hall, by electing Mary Kate Feeney to be their City Councilor.
Mary Kate is dedicated to making Framingham a better place to live, work, learn and play. She has managed to avoid the petty and counterproductive behavior our city has suffered from during the past four years.
Her intelligent and optimistic editorials show her grasp of Framingham’s complex issues ranging from the inadequacy of the City website, and the lack of progress on economic development to our horrendous traffic, the heavy burden of environmental pollution and climate change.
Included in her vast roster of volunteer positions is her service on the Strategic initiatives and Financial Oversight Committee which is excellent preparation for her to become a valuable member of the City Council’s Finance Subcommittee Framingham is fortunate to have an excellent relationship with our State legislators.
Senate President, Karen Spilka, recently secured $12 Million for the clean-up the former General Chemical Site in SE Framingham. Mary Kate’s work experience at the State level as an aide to Governor Deval Patrick would strengthen this invaluable partnership.
Our young city has been granted the opportunity for a New Beginning. Mary Kate is the right choice to bring this promise to fulfillment. Voters of District 3, for the sake of our entire community, please elect Mary Kate Feeney as your next City Councilor.
