A Precinct 5 Town Meeting Member, Bullock chaired the Town Meeting Capital Budget Committee. She told the Metrowest Daily News: “Because I have lived here, raised two children and taken advantage of the many services available to our residents both young and old, I know how all aspects of our government affect us all. I want all the residents and employees of Framingham treated with respect by our elected officials. I will start by listening to the residents of District 2 and bringing their desires to the City Council.”

###District 2 School Committee (Vote for one candidate on Nov. 7)

Richard Finlay is running unopposed. I asked if he’d like to participate in the candidate questionnaire anyway, and he suggested people read his Q&A on the Framingham Source, which asked many of the same questions.
