A group of high-powered Democrats in Framingham, including most of the legislative delegation, is hosting a fundraiser for Lt. Gov. Tim Murray tonight in Framingham at La Cantina Ristorante.
Locals can meet with the Lt. Gov. between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. with a suggested donation of $50, $100 or $200.
The election is in 2014.
Murray is no stranger to Framingham. The former Worcester mayor makes frequent visits to the largest town in the Commonwealth.
State Rep. Sannicandro writes in an invite that went out that "Murray is a great friend to MetroWest, investing $22 Million into a new MassBay Campus, $9 Million to improved transportation infrastructure and re-opening Ashland State Park. Come support Tim because he supports us."
Some of the host committee for tonight's event include Selectman Dennis Giombetti, Planning Board member Tom Mahoney, Rep. Chris Walsh, Sen. Karen Spilka, Selectman Charlie Sisitsky, former representative Pam Richardson, Nanette Magnani, Selectman Laurie Lee, Phil and Valerie Ottaviani and Charles & Kathleen Stefanini.
It's not unusual for politicians to hold fundraisers before declaring their intention to run.
Anyone interested in attending the fundraiser tonight should RSVP to Kellie O'Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org
Checks should be made tonight to the "Citizens Committee to Elect Timothy P. Murray."
