In the two most recent off year Town elections (2005 and 2007) only about 3,500 voters cast their ballots in the Franklin High School field house on election day.
In the two most recent override votes, 2007 - 8,500 and 2008 - 7,500 voters cast their ballots.
The election on November 3rd will be as important as an override election. Who we chose will either find the way to come up with a balanced budget maintaining critical services, or will end up cutting critical services.
There are twelve candidates to chose from. Five have chosen to share their thoughts here. (Four Council candidates have been published thus far, the fifth is being reviewed before being published).
Be informed. Ask them questions. Cast your vote on November 3rd.
This election will determine Franklin's future!
