1st Franklin District: Wisnewski says everyone deserves to be represented at the tables of power

Francia Wisnewski, a candidate for the 1st Franklin District House seat, is a Colombian-born senior program manager of the literacy program Raising a Reader Massachusetts, has been vice chairwoman of the Greenfield School Committee and currently serves as a Montague Town Meeting member. She is also on the boards of the Shea Theater and of Leadership Pioneer Valley.

She also chairs the Hampshire and Franklin Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, is a member of the Montague Democratic Committee and has participated in the Emerge Massachusetts program to inspire women to run for office.

The 41-year-old candidate, who moved to Franklin County 17 years ago, says she is running for the 1st Franklin District House seat “because I have seen and experienced the struggles of working families first-hand,” having worked as a staff member of the food pantry and the WIC Program, as well as having been a participant of both programs.

“I am a unique candidate,” she said. “I have worked for 17 years all over Franklin and Hampshire counties in education, social justice and community development.

1st Franklin District House: Blais cites experience working across many levels of government

Natalie Blais’s elected political experience may be limited to the Sunderland Public Library Board, which she chairs, but she’s been immersed in government service for decades, dating before her current role as Franklin County Chamber of Commerce’s executive director.

After interning for Bernie Sanders when he was a congressman and she was a political science major at Dickinson College, the Vermont native went to work for Vermont’s state auditor. After moving to Massachusetts, Blais became an aide to former congressman John Olver and after that, Congressman Jim McGovern for a dozen years.

“As a staffer, my job was bringing people to the table,” says Blais, who also worked as assistant to University of Massachusetts Amherst Chancellor Kumble R. Subbaswamy before becoming chamber director a year ago.

Blais has been endorsed by Kulik, who said last week, “She has also earned my vote by the way in which she has conducted her campaign as an accessible, responsive, thoughtful and honest candidate. … She’s the person I want to represent me, going forward.”
