The MBC is pleased to welcome Candidates for State Representative: Sandra Slattery Biagetti and Brian Murray, as well as Senator Karen Spilka.
Mrs. Biagetti and Mr. Murray are vying for the Tenth Worcester District: Hopedale, Mendon, Milford and Medway (Precinct 1). The seat is currently held by Representative John Fernandes, who is not running for reelection. Senator Spilka is running unopposed.
Mrs. Biagetti was born and raised in Milford and has worked for a local insurance agency for almost 30 years. She began her political service about 15 years ago, when she was appointed to the Zoning Board of Appeals in Hopedale. She continues to serve on the Zoning Board and has also served on the Hopedale School Committee and the Board of Selectmen.
Mr. Murray, a practicing attorney in Milford for more than 30 years, has been active in local government in the town for all of that time. He has served on the Milford School Committee for 12 years and is in his 16th year on the Milford Board of Selectmen. Mr. Murray has also served on many committees focused on local projects of importance to the community, serving local seniors, veterans and families.
Senator Spilka was first elected to the House of Representatives in a special election in the fall of 2001, and served three years before her election to the Senate (2nd Middlesex and Norfolk District). She currently chairs the Senate Committee on Ways and Means, and has served in numerous capacities to promote economic development, job growth and workforce training – specifically for STEM careers. Senator Spilka created the Mass Marketing Partnership and MetroWest Tourism and Visitors Bureau.
You will have the opportunity to hear a brief presentation from each candidate as well as talk with the candidates before the meeting and during breakfast.
