What issues will you address regarding the City's budget?

A:

We are blessed in Franklin to be one of the most financially stable municipalities in the State. With that comes great responsibility. Aldermen have a responsibility as elected officials to hold the City accountable for the funds taken in through taxation. Just because the money is coming in, doesn't mean we should spend it. We should critically evaluate every line item of expenditures to ensure it is absolutely essential to conduct regular business for the City. Every effort must be made to preserve the financial stability of the City of Franklin while actively minimizing, when possible, the tax burden on residents.
