FM #414 Talk Franklin - 12/11/20 (audio)

FM #414 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 414 in the series. 

This session of the radio show shares my "Talk Franklin" conversation with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen and Marketing and Communications Specialist Anne Marie Tracey. We had our conversation via conference bridge to adhere to the ‘social distancing’ requirements of this pandemic period.

We talk about: 

Business listening session
  • Holiday special edition
  • #ThinkFranklinFirst gift cards
Water ban lifted (finally – due to rain, snow…)
Town Council
  • New councilor
  • CPA comes back
  • Payment for treatment facility
COVID-19 reminder on social distance, masks, etc …

We’ll record a session of Talk Franklin each week leading to Christmas and take the holiday week off to begin again in 2021. After this session, we have one more to close out 2020.

Links to the key topics covered here are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 45 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Anne Marie.  Audio file =

#ThinkFranklinFirst gift cards 

We are now producing this in collaboration with Franklin.TV and Franklin Public Radio ( or 102.9 on the Franklin area radio dial.
