"Every Election is determined by those who show up"
-Larry J. Sabato,
"The Pendulum Swing"
No matter which party you support or how you feel about those currently serving in office, there is one thing none of us can ignore: our vote matters. Elected Town Officials are focused on our town whether its keeping the peace, protecting the citizens, or being catalyst for improvements. They are also the people who can help us when we are dealing with town ordinances because of work or personal reasons. The people elected in the November election will vote on issues that affect you. How do you figure out who has your same intentions in mind?
For us, the best way to understand the candidates is to get out and meet them! Tomorrow night (don't worry we'll have you home in plenty of time for the game) we are welcoming over 15 of the candidates for Franklin residents to get to mingle in an informal gathering at the store. Get to know them and let them get to know you!
We will also be providing a wine tasting and light snacks.
Small print: Gathering is free. Dog-friendly, as always. 21+ for humans. Dogs can be younger.
