"the community support has to be there"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"Local residents were invited Monday evening to meet the candidates vying to be the next leader of the school district. 
More than 20 members of the public came to ask questions of the three finalists for the superintendent position: Blackstone-Millville Assistant Superintendent David Thomson, Chelmsford Assistant Superintendent Linda Hirsch and Weymouth Assistant Superintendent Susan Kustka. 
The candidates were each asked about moving high school start times in light of data showing that teens perform better with a later start. 
Hirsch stressed the importance of researching the change, suggesting a committee of stakeholders examine the issue."

Empower Yourself to reduce and reverse your Autoimmune condition and symptoms!

Learn the 5 key components identified to distract, overwhelm and aggravate the immune system.

When these are removed autoimmunity calms down drastically.

Autoimmunity is a condition of the identifying itself as an enemy and then attacking itself. Traditional medicine offers medications to prolong life or reduce symptoms but doesn't work with patients to remove the root causes for the body turning on itself.


  • 4 of 5 people with Autoimmunity are women
  • 1 of 5 are children

Conflict of interest of public official; reporting requirement

"Any public official, as defined by section l of chapter two hundred and sixty-eight B, (read a Town Councilor) 
who in the discharge of his official duties (voting on a zoning bylaw amendment, for example) 
would be required knowingly to take an action which would substantially affect such official's financial interests, (any bylaw amendment that would affect the market value of residential or commercial property) 
unless the effect on such an official is no greater than the effect on the general public,  (when the Town Councilor is also a realtor, they would have a 'greater' effect than the general citizen) 
shall file a written description of the required action and the potential conflict of interest with the state ethics commission established by said chapter two hundred and sixty-eight B." (how many such filings have been made the realtors who are Town Councilors?)



Why do we ask such?

The potential councilor conflict of interest for realtors was raised during the Summer St zoning map change discussion. One realtor councilor had recused himself. The other realtor councilor chose not to recuse himself.

Glenn Jones after being duly elected in 2013, resigned from the Town Council in October 2014 as he had just been hired to teach at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School. As a member of the Town Council, he would be voting on the Franklin portion of the Tri-County budget. He was subsequently voted in again in 2015 and it was known that he was working at Tri-County so while the conflict potential exists, it was at least disclosed and known. He took the high road in 2014 and kudos to him for doing so.



From MA.gov:

268A:6A. Conflict of interest of public official; reporting requirement.
"Section 6A. Any public official, as defined by section l of chapter two hundred and sixty-eight B, who in the discharge of his official duties would be required knowingly to take an action which would substantially affect such official's financial interests, unless the effect on such an official is no greater than the effect on the general public, shall file a written description of the required action and the potential conflict of interest with the state ethics commission established by said chapter two hundred and sixty-eight B."

"even if we could afford it, it's the wrong priority"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"As Gov. Charlie Baker vetoed a controversial pay-raise bill Friday, several local lawmakers - on both sides of the argument - defended their votes. 
The $18 million package that would bump pay for legislative leaders, judges and constitutional officers swiftly passed through the House and Senate this week with near unilateral support of Democrats, and complete opposition by Republicans. 
Baker called the pay hikes "irresponsible" and rejected the bill. Republicans from MetroWest and the Milford area agreed with Baker's veto."

FHS wrestling takes Hockomock Championship; boys hockey tops Oliver Ames



Hockey = Oliver Ames, 1 @ Franklin, 4 – Final
"Former Franklin goalie Sean Bertoni (Class of 2002) made his first return to his alma mater as a head coach on Saturday night, leading Oliver Ames into Pirelli Veterans Arena with a chance to take control of the Kelley-Rex title race. 
But it was current Panthers netminder Cam Benham that stole the headlines and the two points with a 40-save performance that helped Franklin claim a 4-1 victory and control of its own destiny as it seeks to clinch a sixth straight league championship. 
“That’s the goaltender that we need every night,” said Franklin coach Chris Spillane. “We’re looking forward to Cam getting on a roll. He had a shutout the other night, played unbelievable for us tonight, made some really big saves, and kept us in the game.”

Franklin Police Department is responding to the opioid epidemic

"The Franklin Police Department is responding to the opioid epidemic in multiple ways. Franklin Police officers are dispatched to reported overdoes, and carry with them the opioid overdosing reversal drug naloxone (Narcan). In addition to this, they also carry with them defibrillators and other medical equipment. The Franklin Police Department believes in openness, transparency, and honestly about the problems our community faces. We will be providing information about the current state of the problem we are responding to, and also continually working to educate, and help those who suffer with addiction. This page will provide data on the number of responses the Franklin Police has made to reported overdoses, and the general locations where we have responded. No specific information about individuals will be provided.

As this problem has grown we have gained more tools to help those who have been affected. Support groups such as the S.A.F.E. Coalition have formed, and also new legislation has been passed. In 2016 Governor Baker signed into law an expansion of the Protective Custody Law, which now allows police officers to require a victim of an overdoes to be seen by medical personnel.

We hope that you will find this information useful, and will support our efforts in trying to help those who suffer under the weight of addiction, and those who care for and about them. Chief Lynch recently appeared on the S.A.F.E. Coalitions's "Confronting Our Crisis" television program. That program can be viewed here."



A new page has been added to the Town of Franklin Police Department page to help share info on the effect of this opioid epidemic in Franklin.

"It's just a defensive move"

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"A series of proposed recreational marijuana bylaws will come before the Town Council this week as the town coordinates its response to November's ballot initiative. 
The council will consider the regulations - which would govern the location of recreational marijuana facilities - in a public hearing during its Wednesday night meeting. 
The set of five bylaw amendments - which look to limit such businesses and buildings to certain areas, primarily the local industrial parks - first came in front of the council in late December."
