"We have to make another attempt"

One of the important discussion items on the agenda of the Town Council meeting was the presentation by Jim Dacey, the Treasurer/Collector. The Milford Daily News gets around to reporting on that section of the meeting that you read about here already.
"The next treasurer/collector should not be decided by who has the most signs, biggest newspaper ads, and most people standing at the polls during Election Day, handing out trinkets," said James Dacey. "I was elected. That’s how I got the job. But after being here 13 years, I’ve seen the job evolve tremendously." 
Most of the towns that surround Franklin appoint their treasurer/collector, Dacey said. He said the towns that do not, tend to have relatively small populations. 
At present, the only qualifications to run for treasurer/collector are that the candidate be at least 18 years old and live in Franklin.
