I am just another Floridiot who transplanted to the Franklin area a few years ago, after having owned a summer house here since 2005. I love the area and try to do my small part to contribute to my Otto community. My only regret is that I do not live in the Franklin city limits so that I can vote in the municipal elections.
If I could vote, I would do my best to oust the four aldermen serving as dead weights on the backside of progress in Franklin, as evidenced most recently by The Bowery and promotional banner issues.
The residents, visitors, and plucky business owners of the downtown area deserve every effort the city can provide to promote the vibrancy and charm of our little town.
Hang on, Bob, Barb, and Patty – hopefully reinforcements will arrive in the next election!
