My intro

This internet radio show or podcast for Franklin Matters is number 33 in the series.

This session is a special one. On Monday morning, March 9, 2009, there was a panel discussion on the government and its role in the economy. The panel included Congressman James McGovern, State Senator Scott Brown, State Senator Karen Spilka, Majority Leader of the House, our own Representative Jim Vallee, Town Administrator Jeff Nutting, and Town Council Chairperson Chris Feeley. The panel was held at Franklin High School and put together by Michael Walsh. The moderator was FHS Senior April Crehan. The session was well attended by students but only a handful of citizens took part.

Now you can share in that opportunity. What follows is the audio recording of the panel discussion split into three parts.

The first part covers the introduction of the panel/moderator and the first question which all had a chance to talk to.

The second part covers three questions. The third part also covers three questions and the closing is cut off by the bell for the students to change class periods.

Thanks to all the panelists for sharing their thoughts in this forum. Thanks also to Mike Walsh for the opportunity to provide this recording for those who missed to take part.
