FRAMINGHAM – I am pleased to endorse Ms. Margareth Shepard for the new 6th Middlesex state district election on September 6th.
I am a resident of District 8, and as the recently retired Director of Multilingual Programs for the Framingham Public School district, I have observed the passion, commitment and work ethic that Margareth has had towards the young immigrant students in our city.
From the onset, Margareth has been a passionate advocate for all language programs in the Framingham Public Schools and offered her support in establishing relationships with the Brazilian Embassy in creating sustainable teacher exchange programs with Brazil.
Her steadfastness, collaborative spirit and urgency in establishing this partnership is impressive.
As an immigrant herself who has faced similar challenges and obstacles, ensuring that ALL students have access to high-quality educational programs is of high priority.
Margareth will lead with conviction, integrity and compassion. She understands the needs of our community and people who live here as seen through her advocacy and multiple endorsements that she has received from key organizations. Our city has benefited greatly from her service to this community. A vote for Margareth is a vote for the future of Framingham and its people!
Please join me in endorsing Margareth and voting for her for State Democratic Representative on September 6!
