Voters took to the polls yesterday, resulting in new leadership for Franklin and Highlands.
In Franklin, two candidates were vying for the open Mayoral seat, left vacant after Joe Collins announced earlier this year he would not be seeking reelection. The mayoral candidates, Bob Scott and Sissy Pattillo, were both sitting aldermen on the Franklin town board. Both Scott and Pattillo ran on the platform of supporting local business and moving Franklin in a new direction. With a total of 493 votes, or 72.82 percent of the votes cast, Scott won the election and will take the helm of the town board in December.
