Why Franklin Matters - why I started this in 2006/2007 and have been at it since https://www.franklinmatters.org/p/why-franklin-matters.html
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. https://www.franklinmatters.org/p/franklin-matters-radio.html
The Franklin Matters Radio archives grow regularly as recordings of meetings and interviews are posted. https://www.franklinmatters.org/p/fm-podcasts.html
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 wfpr.fm 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.https://www.franklinmatters.org/p/blog-page.html
Through this feedback loop we can continue to make improvements.
