BOSTON – Former Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer was one of seven individuals elected to the board of the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus during its annual meeting on Monday, January 31.
Also in January, Mayor Spicer was elected as a member of the Framingham Democratic Committee along with School Committee Chair Priscila Sousa and cable access talk show host Audrey Hall, who is also a member of the Massachusetts Commission for Women.
One of the other Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus Board members elected was former mayor Spicer’s former senior advisor Jacquetta Van Zandt, who left the City of Framingham in November 2019 to campaign for former Congressman Joseph Kennedy III for U.S. Senate. He lost to Ed Markey.
The other board members elected include Nicole Caravella, Ellen Fleming Clark, Martina Jackson, Christie Lindor, and, Antigoni Woodland.
The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus is a nonpartisan organization committed to increasing the number of women elected to public office and appointed to public policy positions.
The mission of the caucus is to “civically engage women of all ages in the political process through events, programming, and workshops. Caucus members include a diverse group of women that include the political, healthcare, biotech, academic, business, corporate, and non-profit communities. The MWPC offers programs that strive to increase the interest of women in the political process and helps them to be successful in the political arena.”
Two of our new board members will be hosting a training program, “Master Class: The Art of Media Relations.”

Participants will discuss both proactive and reactive communications strategies and how to translate media coverage into votes. This class will be held over Zoom and tickets are only $85.
