Letter: I’d like your vote, Franklin

To the residents of Franklin: I am writing to remind you that it is time for local elections. I ask for your support as a city councilor for Ward 3.

I have lived in Franklin for the past 24 years. My children were born and raised in Franklin and went through the Franklin school system and onto college. I have served on the Franklin School Board for the past 11 years. Some of the accomplishments while I have been on the board include lowering the dropout rate from a high of 18 percent to the current 4 percent and increasing the proficiency level on the NECAP scores.

In my years on the school board, I have been level-headed and, while not always in the majority, supported decisions once they were made by the board. Within the community, I have been involved with the Franklin Lassie League and the Franklin Footlight Theatre and have served on the board of the Twin Rivers Food Pantry. I would be a good representative of the entire community and look to keep the best interests of our city at heart. I ask for your support; please remember to vote today.

STEVE BARTON
