I met Frank while serving on Framingham town meeting. He was relentless in his fight against injustice and wrongdoings. He did his homework and was never afraid of bringing issues to the forefront even if there would be political backlash because he cared about truth. He was always kind. I admired his tenacity, drive and passion. He made a difference. I offer condolences to your entire family.
