Event description
Join us on Wednesday, September 25, for a free, non-partisan “Franklin Civics Forum: How Your Town Government Works.”

About this Event

Did you snooze through your Civics course in high school? Did you even get a Civics course in high school? It’s not too late.

Six current members of Franklin’s town government will speak about their areas of expertise:

• Tom Mercer, chair of the Town Council, will provide an initial overview of the town government—its parts, their interrelationships, their purposes and personalities. He will also moderate the forum.

• Melanie Hamblen, a member of the Town Council, will speak from the point of view of Franklin’s legislature.

• Anne Bergen, chair of Franklin’s School Committee, and Sara Ahern, Superintendent of Schools, will discuss education, the largest single part of the town budget.

• Joe Halligan sits on the Planning Board. He will speak on the Board's role in the town's development, zoning, land use, and the like.

• Jamie Hellen, Town Administrator, will close the forum by explaining how his office oversees the day-to-day implementation of town government.

A question-and-answer period will follow. Refreshments will be served. Admission is free and open to all.

This is a non-partisan event sponsored by the Franklin Democratic Town Committee.

Space is limited. Registration is encouraged.
