In the News - override

Franklin override supporters make their case


Junior Robby Kent and sophomore Ali Sturtevant said they want to see an end to the misery they and their siblings have endured with previous budget cuts.
"We've been losing a lot of teachers since 2005," Kent said. "My brothers are both in middle school now, and they don't get as much attention from the teacher."


Franklin councilor says override is needed


Councilor Robert Vallee said fixed costs, like pensions and health care plans, contribute to the town's financial woes.
"I know the budgets very, very well. I have a hard time finding any waste," Vallee said. "It's all very well-documented, and run very, very efficiently. The shortfall is there's a recession going on."
