contribute's picture

Hello neighbors,

I'm Frank D'Urso and I'm running for School Committee.

I'm a Quality Assurance Engineer with 25+ years of high-tech experience. I have a Master of Management degree from Cambridge College, my undergraduate degree is from Northeastern University.

You might remember me from the effort to defeat the school district plan and the Fruit Street elementary school project. I was outspoken in opposition to those plans, and thankfully most of the town felt the same way and we prevailed, but not without a lot of hard work and many volunteers working together.
