Framingham votes to become city

FRAMINGHAM, MA (WHDH) - The town of Framingham is making a change to become a city.

Voters in Framingham narrowly passed a vote yesterday to change the town’s government structure.

That means residents will need to elect a mayor and city council. Those elections will take place later this year.

Proponents of the charter change argued that Framingham has become too large and diverse to be governed like other smaller towns.
