Stone may have been the only voice of reason we had on the commission. As for the rest of them I am not so sure about. Let's all remember to 'clean house' come November.

Everyone in franklin keeps voting these guys in. If Franklin wants a different voice speaking for them they should vote these guys out.

Yes Henry voted him in as well but it got to the point where Jim would not even acknowledge anything that Henry said because he was againest spending money for no reason such as the pay raises.Wendall is the biggest Jim smoocher we have and I am sure that he will miss him.We need to find out if the new people running for office are willing to address the city attorney pay as Scott was Big Time Jim man as well so Jim took really good care of him by way over paying him for his services to Franklin.It was talked about during the last election but Jim curtailed it asap!! saying that the city should keep him and not bid out those services but there is money to be saved in that area for the city and we should look at all the money savings ideals.The city has way to many cars and trucks that employees drive home I can see letting the police officers drive cars home as a finge benefit and maybe deter crime but home and work should be the only driving they do and not to the store,not to Walmart and not to the gym.
The fire dept.has too many crusier cars going home with somebody as well and the city water and steet dept. shouldn't be driving around in mid range cost trucks the basic F-150 should serve the purpose for what they do not four door F-250 and surely not tinted windows I mean come on people. We need to make sure these guys are removed because they seem not to care about the money they spend after all it is only taxpayer money to them

Matt Dillion your right on track! Whoever wins in November needs to take a look at Scott Crabtree's billing practices.

The issue with the police cars being driven, I do see some personal use but again I think the more they are seen the less crime we have.

Sometimes we have to give a little to get a little.
