Happy anniversary Franklin Matters readers! We celebrate 15 years bringing you timely and accurate news!

Happy anniversary to us!

You have read, asked questions, subscribed, commented, sent us something to post, etc. And we welcome that. It take two to tango.

For the folks who may be new, welcome to the group! You may have questions someone has asked before (hence an easy answer) or have a question no one has asked before (and we'll go figure it out).

Integration with Franklin TV and Franklin Public Radio ( will continue. Someday, not too far away, there will be one page with three views to “Watch, Listen, and Read” all of Franklin’s information. 

  1. Franklin TV and the three channels will be the “Watch” view

  2. Franklin Public Radio ( will be the “Listen” 

  3. last but not least, to help tie them all together will be Franklin Matters as the “Read’ view

What do you get for a free subscription?

If you haven't already Subscribed; please do, you will receive only one email per day with all that matters.

Why Franklin Matters - why I started this in 2006/2007 and have been at it since

Meeting notes: the archive on meeting notes and audio recordings for meetings going back to 2008. If interested, a link to the 2007 archives is also available.

wfpr.rm podcasts, or play anywhere Radio shows. The link to each podcast as well as the most current episode of each can be found on the page in alphabetical order.

The Franklin Matters Radio archives grow regularly as recordings of meetings and interviews are posted.

Among the radio shows posted there are some regular series

  • Talk Franklin - a regular discussion with Town Administrator Jamie Hellen

  • Town Council Quarterbacking with Chair Tom Mercer - a post meeting recap

  • Interviews with candidates for the Franklin local election (every two years)

  • Audio segments of meetings and events recorded, many of them shared via radio

  • If you look for an episode and find a broken link, please let me know. I did change podcast hosts in February 2021. Links prior to that may be in the older format and I can’t update them all easily. They are available and I will do them as you need them.

Key links - a page with collections of writing around a topic. For example the “Election Collections” for each local election since 2007 are available

Community Events - built upon the “Cultural Calendar”, this adds the other community events to provide a more holistic view of what is happening. The Town and School official meetings are maintained on their respective calendars.

  • If you can use the information that you find here, please tell your friends and neighbors

  • If you don't like something here, please let me know

Through this feedback loop we can continue to make improvements.

Happy anniversary Franklin Matters readers! 15 years old and fresh as ever!
