Framingham is Now a City!
On January 1, 2018, Framingham swore in its first Mayor and City Councilors. Our new form of government is now officially in control. The League of Women Voters in Framingham looks forward to watching the evolution of our form of government and encourages all residents to take part in this process. We will be looking for ways to help engage and inform Framingham residents. Join us at an upcoming meeting and give us your ideas. Democracy is not a spectator sport, so get involved!
We are holding our 3rd Informed Framingham event on Monday, February 5th at 7pm at the McAuliffe Branch Library on Water Street. This event will focus on the tax abatement programs offered in Framingham, and by the State for those who meet the criteria. Joining us to inform us about these programs will be William Nasar, Chief Assessor for the City of Framingham who will discuss the many programs offered by the city. We will also have a representative from H & R Block who will discuss the state programs available. This event is open to the public and all are welcome. For more information, please see our brochure.
The next meeting of the Framingham LWV is being held on Monday, February 26th at 7pm at the McAuliffe Branch Library at 7pm. This is a regular monthly meeting and is open to the public. We will also be electing officers to the open positions of Vice President and Treasurer. Only members of the Framingham LWV can run for these positions, and vote in this election. If you are a member of the LWV here in Framingham and have an interest in one of these positions, please contact Stephanie Deeley and inform her of your interest no later than February 15th.
On Sunday, February 18th, tune in to Access Framingham to watch State of the City, a ½ hour show being produced by the Framingham League of Women Voters. Exact time will be forthcoming but it will be somewhere in the 6-7pm time frame. We will be doing this show on the 3rd Sunday of every month and will be talking about issues related to our new government with elected officials, involved residents, and new committee appointees. We will be taking questions live from the audience during these shows. Stay tuned for more information on the exact time, and who our first guests will be!
