I love my town! I have a business in Franklin and we have lived here for years and I feel it necessary that I be involved to help our city grow and prosper. I believe in order to run our city efficiently we must continue to have a strong fiscal responsibility to our citizens. I strive to work with our staff and their departments to do that.
1. The drug crisis - I continue to support our police and fire to combat against this issue by continuing to vote for keeping our police involved with the Warren County Drug Task Force along with the Hope Program headed up by our fire chief.

2. Developing downtown - we are supporting the efforts of Forever Franklin and committed to bringing in new businesses and filling the empty store fronts.

3. Bring jobs to Franklin - we support our current businesses with their growth and hiring.
We must continue to support the groups and individuals that are working toward filling our downtown. I am very committed to our downtown and will continue to vote to help them with projects to make our downtown alive again.
As a council we would meet with all department heads and look at all options to decide what is best for our town. I would like to see money go toward our programs that are in place to combat drugs - especially our Hope program.
We need to rebuild where buildings have been lost and those that need a lot of work. We are currently working on sections of our city to enhance our water mains and this needs to be kept up.

I am running for office to continue to help the City of Franklin grow and continue improvements for the future of our City.
Keeping taxes low, Keep providing good services to the residents and expanding our park. I will also do my best to keep taxes as low as possible for the residents of Franklin. I will also work with the City Manager to make sure our residents get the best we can give them in service. Expanding our park will take time, however, it will give us the room we need to help reduce congestion in the park.
We need to partner with downtown businesses to help them expand and we also need to encourage downtown development.
Into our "HOPE" program that the City has started to help continue helping people with addiction. This was started by the Fire Department and is wonderful program to help citizens with Addiction.
We need to continue providing great roads and services to the residents of the City of Franklin.
