Candidate Interview: Glenn Jones, incumbent candidate for Town Council (audio)

FM #1092 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 1092 in the series. 


This session shares my conversation with Glenn Jones, incumbent candidate for Franklin MA Town Council. We had our discussion via Zoom on Sunday, October 29, 2023. 


We covered the standard set of questions for candidate interviews:

  1. What is your ‘Franklin story’? Tell us briefly about your road to Franklin, living & your involvement here

  2. While the law does not require citizens to vote, voting is a very important part of any democracy. How important is it that we elect people who are active participants in the election process

  3. What experience or background will help you to serve in this role? Or what do you bring to the table that helps to set you apart from the others

  4. The Town Council approves the annual budget which sets the priorities for how Franklin operates. Faced with the reported fiscal challenges of the next several years, what are the financial priorities we need to address? How do you explain to the voters and residents what needs to be done


The recording runs about 30 minutes, so let’s listen in. Audio link -> https://franklin-ma-matters.captivate.fm/episode/fm-1092-candidate-interview-glennjones-10-29-23
