2. Today is election day in Framingham. Voters in 23 communities and in three counties will go to the polls to select one of four candidates to be the 5th Congressional District's new U.S. Representative, to replace Ed Markey, who became the state's junior senator earlier this year.
Polls will be open in Framingham from 7 a.m. to 8 pm. For additional information on the candidates and on where to vote, click here.
3. Tomorrow morning, before the sun rises, WAAF personalities Anthony “Spaz” Parziale and Lyndon Byers will “rise up” on a lift, where they will live on a platform suspended high in the sky for three full days in an effort to raise funds for The Greater Boston, Worcester County and New Hampshire Food Banks.
Spaz will be lifted six stories high on a life located above The British Beer Company in Framingham at 6 a.m. Wednesday, where he will stay suspended on a small platform until 7 pm on December 13. Byers will do the same in Boston.
WAAF listeners are encouraged to visit Spaz and LB during the three days they are up in the sky and make a donation to the cause. To donate via phone, call the “Rise Up” hotline at (617) 787-3481 or to donate $10 via text, text “WAAF” to the “Rise Up” text line: 20222.
