U.S. Rep. James “Jim” McGovern wants to take what Franklin County’s got and give it to the rest of the country. “What I love about the new part of my district is that, out here, people demonstrate how to do things right,” McGovern told a crowd of constituents gathered at Green Fields Market Saturday. His district, largely in Worcester County, grew to include Greenfield and 13 central and eastern Franklin County towns during last year’s federal redistricting. His words referred to the county’s commitment to sustainable living, support of local agriculture and enthusiasm for renewable energies.
