Annual Breakfast Meeting, Sunday March 19

The Framingham Town Democratic Committee will be holding its annual breakfast on Sunday March 19, 2017, at 10:00 AM in the function room at the Framingham Green Apartments, 136 Maynard Rd. All Framingham residents are welcome to join in the morning festivities as the Committee will hear from fellow Democrats who are running in the upcoming Town-Wide election, which takes place later this month.

Each of the Democratic candidates for town-wide office will be given an opportunity to address the attendees to discuss their campaign issues and answer questions as the Town elections, to be held on April 4, 2017. Attendance at the breakfast will present a unique opportunity to meet and discuss your concerns and hear the position of each of the candidates in attendance. We will be hearing statements from all Democratic town-wide office candidates, as well as introducing the Democrats who are present and running for Town Meeting Seats. We will also have on hand candidates for future state-wide election.
