Make your first-ever City Councilor the right choice!

Meet Phil Ottaviani, Candidate for District 6 City Council


Dear Neighbors,

This fall we will have our first opportunity to elect a district representative to Framingham’s City Council.

I am running for the District 6 (Precincts 10 & 11) seat because I care deeply about Framingham and our people. I was born and raised here and my wife Valerie and I made a conscious decision to raise our daughter Julia here as well. I am proud to be a fourth generation Framingham resident.

Our new City Council should value everyone’s input in order to fully understand all of the issues placed before it. We need to preserve the best parts of our previous form of government as we migrate to our new form, and resident participation is critical to reaching this goal.

We must work together to protect the quality of education our children receive and to enhance the quality of municipal services we provide to our community . As long as we all work together we will continue to have a great place to call home.

I am committed to a responsive government that listens to you, spends your tax dollars responsibly and preserves the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I also have the experience and leadership skills to get this done.

I humbly ask for your vote for District 6 City Councilor in the preliminary election on Tuesday September 26th.

Thank you,

Philip R. Ottaviani, Jr.
