How will you support the residents of Downtown Franklin in your role as Ward 4 Alderman?

A:

I will support the residents of Downtown Franklin by:

  • Aggressively advocating for the residential neighborhood character and qualities of Downtown Franklin
  • Fighting to reduce and re-route traffic away from Downtown 
  • Supporting the local businesses and shopkeepers who make Downtown Franklin unique

I first fell in love with Downtown Franklin as I drove the streets of Franklin developing business and meeting clients in this beautiful place. Downtown Franklin must be protected. it is special. It is where I walk at night, it's where I take my kids to breakfast on Saturday mornings. It must be actively advocated for on the Board of Mayor and Alderman. Downtown Franklin isn't a commercial district that could be recreated or "turned" into a modern shopping district. It is a neighborhood, with locally owned shops and restaurants, full of residents and people who love their neighborhood. It has watering holes and it has fine dining favorites. It should be protected as a neighborhood. This means encouraging residential occupancies of houses. This includes advocating for and always looking to the interest of the residents of Downtown.

My role as an advocate for Downtown is central and important to ALL citizens of Franklin. We must protect this jewel that is our Downtown.
