Westborough selectmen to host legislators

Westborough – At the Board of Selectmen's Nov. 13 meeting, the board agreed to host a small informal reception with the town's state legislators prior to one of its upcoming meetings.

But in spite of the representatives agreeing with them and the congressional redistricting that will take effect Jan. 2, 2013, the town will still have three different representatives.
