Elect the first Black Woman as Franklin Townships Mayor!
Franklin has only directly elected two Mayors in its history. Brian Levine and Phillip Kramer. Beverly Briggs-Lawson would be the first directly elected person of color and the first Woman directly elected as mayor of Franklin.
Surprisingly it is the Republican Party that she is running with but as a woman of color she strives to represent all residents of Franklin, Democrat, Republican and independent. There has been other women as mayor of Franklin, but they have always been appointed by the majority of the council members. The current council is currently entirely controlled by the 100% Democratic council. I believe it's time to give Franklin the mayor that will represent our town with all of our goals, dreams and aspirations.
