FM #217 - Presidential Primary Broadcast March 3, 2020 (audio)

FM #217 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 217 in the series.

The Franklin Public Radio team gathered to broadcast live on from Franklin High School as the polls closed at 8 PM on Tuesday, March 3. As the Franklin results were tabulated, we would be ready to share Town Clerk Teresa Burr’s information.

If you happened to tune in live, or read the news on Wednesday you found out that due to a spreadsheet problem, the results were not available for broadcast. I did stop by the Town Clerk’s office on Wednesday to capture what were still the unofficial that time. You’ll hear Teresa and Assistant Clerk Nancy Daniello provide the quick summary.

The official results will be certified and submitted to the Secretary of the Commonwealth by Friday, March 6. The results when available will also be found on the Franklin Town Clerk page and Franklin Matters.

Thanks to my co-hosts Jim Derrick, Frank Falvey. Also to Pete Faciano, Keith Palmieri and Mark Berman for their technical work to enable this. And special thanks to our guests; Rep Jeff Roy, Town Councilor Glenn Jones, and School Committee member MJ Scofield.

Let's listen to the broadcast:
