About Chris WalshChris Walsh at ribbon cutting ceremony

Chris Walsh, the son of a Navy admiral, spent his youth moving around the country. An architect by training, he moved to Framingham in 1989 and found a home where he and his wife, Cindy, would raise their children. Chris served the local community in countless ways over the years, as an elected town meeting member, a library trustee, a board member of Amazing Things Arts, and president of the Framingham Historical Society. Most recently, Chris was the elected representative of the 6th Middlesex District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, which included much of Framingham, from 2011 until his death in 2018. Chris showed a passion for supporting equity and access to high-quality education for all. He was involved with Framingham State University in  many ways, supporting the preservation of the 1812 House in which the MetroWest College Planning Center is located, as well as the university’s merger with the Danforth Art Museum. Chris was presented with the Citizen Laureate Award at the university’s 2016 commencement ceremony.
