In the News: Casey to run for 10th Norfolk; FSPA announces summer sessions; FAA fund raising at Pour Richard's

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

"Town Council member Patrick Casey has pulled papers to run as a Republican for the state rep seat for the 10th Norfolk District. 
Incumbent and Democrat state Rep. Jeff Roy is the only other person to pull papers for the seat. The election will take place on Nov. 6. Candidates require 150 signatures to qualify as a candidate.
