Filed under: Politics,Uncategorized by News Staff at 12:02 pm on August 1, 2011

FRAMINGHAM, MA - With no final vote having taken place, and no actual legislation enacted, some camps are claiming victory, some decrying losses and most just knocking the process of raising the nation's debt ceiling so the country can continue to pay its bills.

President Obama released a 2 minute, 20 second YouTube video with his thoughts on the agreement the two major political parties have made.

There is still a slight chance that a Congressman or State Representative, possibly from the Tea Party -- or even a dissenting ...[read more]

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Framingham's Town Manager, George King resigned from his position to accept a job as Assistant Superintendent of Schools for the Nashoba Regional School District, which provides K-12 education for the Towns of Lancaster, Bolton and Stow. Below is his letter of resignation that he posted online:

From: George P. King, Jr.

Sent: Friday, October 07, 2005 10:08 AM



Last evening I accepted the position of Assistant Superintendent of Schools for the Nashoba Regional School District, which provides K-12 education for the Towns of Lancaster, Bolton and Stow. Consequently, pending the successful resolution of contract issues with Nashoba and

Framingham, I will be leaving my position of Town Manager after nearly seven years.

Clearly this is a bittersweet moment for me. The new opportunity represents a significant career track shift that allows me to pursue a path that has always interested me. The Nashoba District is a progressive and dynamic school system, one that I am fortune to join.

Leaving Framingham, the Town that I was born and educated in, is of course very difficult. The people who work for this community and the services they provide so capably and professionally to the residents are second to none and I will greatly miss that interaction. I offer my sincere thanks to each and every one of you for your efforts on behalf of the Town.

I am proud of the successes achieved during the last six and one half years. Our financial foundation has been stabilized despite the economic hardships that have been faced. We continue to provide first rate services despite budget constraints. I will miss the collaboration on continuing those efforts but I am very confident they will continue and prosper.

As the details of this transition emerge I will keep you informed.

Again thank you for your ongoing support.

Filed under: Politics by Randy Harris at 10:00 pm on April 8, 1997

FRAMINGHAM, MA - Today was a historic day for the town of Framingham Massachusetts as voters cast more than twice as many votes to turn back a proposed charter that would have transformed the largest town in the state into just another medium sized city.

At 9:15pm, with all votes in, King's unverified tally showed that 11,892 had voted on the ballot question, and ...[read more]
