Framingham City Councilor at-Large George King has announced that he will seek re-election. He serves in the critical role of Chairman of the Council’s Finance Committee, while also serving on the Council’s Rules Committee and Planning and Zoning Committee.
“I am proud of the work done on the Finance Committee. The Committee has overseen the development of two annual budgets. We have reduced the City’s spending by almost $7,000,000, saving the average taxpayer over $200 a year” said King, who was previously both Framingham’s Town Manager (1999-2005) and Town Clerk (1993-1999). “Our residents rightfully demand quality public services, and we have the responsibility to deliver those services as efficiently as possible to assure Framingham remains affordable for all.”
King is particularly concerned with the growth of water and sewer rates. “We have done an admirable job rebuilding our system, but at an economic cost. I have requested the administration propose a plan adopting clear and predictable capital expenditures that not only address necessary work, but limits rates to a predictable and affordable level.”
