FM #383 #shopFranklin Sarah Mabardy - 11/04/20 (audio)

FM #383 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 383 in the series.

This shares my discussion with #shopFranklin’s organizer Sarah Mabardy. Our discussion was conducted via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

This is the start of sharing the conversation Sarah and I have around how to help the small businesses of Franklin. We have some thoughts, you may too. If you have questions, ideas, or suggestions, feel free to reach out to Sarah or myself.

The recording runs just about 26 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Sarah   Audio file =
