Here are the candidates for Franklin Common Council this year

The following residents have filed their required ballot access documents:


Aldermanic District 1 (Primary Election required):

Mark Dandrea

Clarke Johnson

Greg Kowalski

Bob Knackert


Aldermanic District 2:

Curt Bolton

Daniel M Mayer


Aldermanic District 5:

Doug Schmidt


With no opposition, Doug Schmidt is virtually assured re-election. That is unfortunate. Schmidt is by far the dimmest of bulbs on a dimly lit Franklin Common Council.


I’ll have more to say about these races between now and the elections.

For now…
