Franklin voters have an opportunity on Nov. 5 to make a difference, and to change the method of achieving results so that Franklin will have the opportunity to engage youthful business ideas in the growth and prosperity of the town.
I am a seventh generation Maconian and even though I can not vote because I do not live within the city limits, I have a vested interest in the direction that the soon-to-be elected mayor and aldermen will take the town of Franklin. I am a product of Macon County Public Schools and Western Carolina University. After college graduation I moved away to secure a job in the field of education. Knowing that someday I would move back to the area, I continued to keep in touch with the "goings on" in Franklin and Macon County. With the use of the internet I have endeavored to read The Franklin Press and The Macon News on a weekly basis and form my opinions.
