SOMERSET, NJ - The public is invited to participate in a virtual Town Hall Thursday night at 7 pm. 

Township residents will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to Franklin Township Mayor, Phil Kramer.

"In our continued efforts to keep everyone updated on accurate and up-to-date COVID-19 information and resources, I will be broadcasting an online discussion with township officials and local press representatives," Kramer said in a letter. "Residents can post questions in the comments, and we will field them as time permits."

Dear Franklin Residents:



In our continued efforts to keep everyone updated on accurate and up-to-date COVID-19 information and resources, I will be broadcasting an online discussion with township officials and local press representatives. Residents can post questions in the comments and we will field them as time permits. Please enter questions rather than commentary so that we can locate questions easily and quickly.

Please find instructions below on how to access this event. It is a first effort on a virtual town hall. We will start by using Facebook and we plan to record and upload the event to be shared as a YouTube video link. We may switch to another format in the future.
