I've been level-headed throughout my years on Franklin School Board

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

To the Citizens of Franklin:
I am writing to remind you that it is time for the local elections in Franklin. I ask for your support as a City Councilor for Ward Three. 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 School Board include lowering the dropout rate from a high of 18 percent to what is currently the statistic of 4 percent and increasing the proficiency level of the NECAP scores. Throughout my years on the school board, I feel I have been level headed and, while not always in the majority, supported decisions once they were made by the board.
Within the community of Franklin, I have been involved with the Franklin Lassie League, the Franklin Footlight Theatre, and have served on the board of the Twin Rivers Food Pantry. I feel I would be a good representative of the entire community of Franklin, and look to keep the best interests of our city at heart. I ask for your support, and please remember to vote on Tuesday.
Steve Barton
