From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

The Franklin delegation changes with challenger Becca Rausch defeating incumbent Richard Ross for Senate while Jeff Roy beat his challenger and Karen Spilka ran unopposed to return to their seats.

"State Rep. Jeff Roy, D-Franklin, won another term representing the 10th Norfolk District, defeating opponent Patrick Casey by earning nearly 60 percent of the vote. 
Roy, who won by a tally of 11,304-8,038, said Tuesday there are four key areas that he’s been working on while in office – schools, addiction, health care reform and economic development. 
“I think a lot of people are awake and realize that this is a very important election, not only nationally but here locally,” said Roy holding a sign on Tuesday afternoon. “This election is about the soul of America and what direction we want to head in.” 
In Medway, Roy, who has served three two-year terms, received 2,727 votes over Republican Casey, a Franklin Town Council member, who had 1,996. In Franklin, Roy received 8,577 votes to Casey’s 6,042."
