This Is Framingham

This Is Framingham
Life in the ‘ham

Ouch!

August 1st, 2008


I was reading an article in the MWDN about how a non-profit opened a home for Autistic people in Marlborough and there is mixed reaction about it.
A quote from a neighbor of the new house stood out to me:

“”I’ve read their (the non-profit’s) mission statement and they want to be the next SMOC. I worked in Framingham and I don’t want to see this town turn into the next Framingham.”

Here is the article if anyone is interested: http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/news/x478787558/

  1. That’s why IMO this upcoming election for State Rep is HUGE. We have such a great town here, we can service everyone’s needs without being bullied into doing so.

  2. WOW It always amazes me how ignorant some can be. I love Framingham. yes, we have some turmoil now, and it needs to be addressed and straightened out as to benefits the less fortunate recieve, and who needs to pay. I have 2 teenagers who have Spec needs and am glad we are here. The schools have been wonderful for us, and lets not forget the shopping around here!! Marlboro doesn’t want to turn into Framingham, but I bet they come here to shop and use what we have. I’m sorry if I ranted on.

  4. I’ve lived in Nobscot my whole life and love the diversity that growing up in Framingham has exposed me to. The last time I checked, though, the minute you cross over into Marloborough it’s a distinctly less attractive and affluent area. People who live in glass trailer parks shouldn’t throw stones.

  5. Um, how screwed up is THAT?! A Marlborough resident is bashing FRAMINGHAM? That’s silly. Has that person LOOKED at their town? Two words, “snore” and “ick.” Completely agree with Frank above…..
