Re-election Campaign for Mayor of Framingham

“It’s been the honor of my life to serve as the first mayor of Framingham. Over the past four years, we have boldly faced challenges and made progress for Framingham. I’m proud of the things we have accomplished together and excited to continue moving our community forward.

While national politics can feel overwhelming and troubling, I have acted locally to make sure that no matter your religion, race, or language, all Framingham residents can feel safe. We continue to make Framingham the welcoming city it has always been, focusing on making government accessible to everyone.

We may not be through this pandemic yet, but the future of our community is bright and limitless. I am energized and ready to continue leading Framingham forward through our recovery and revitalization. I am running for re-election to continue serving as your Mayor for our City of Framingham and I ask for your vote and your support. Thank you.”
