Who's really tingly warm all over about that silly idea to make the Franklin mayor a full-time position?

In my blog Sunday about the need for Franklin City Hall to get its priorities in order (there’s a call to make the mayoral position full-time instead of part-time), I wrote:

“Pay close attention to the arguments in favor of making the mayor’s position full-time and WHO’S making them. Could there be a personal agenda at stake here? You betcha.”

o, who’s really excited about this idea and pushing the hardest for the change? Is it:

A) Franklin taxpayers

B) Franklin bloggers

C) Current Franklin mayor Tom Taylor

D) Franklin Common Council President Steve Taylor

E) Franklin alderman Steve Olson

F) Franklin alderman Kristin Wilhelm

G) Other Franklin aldermen

H) All of the above

I) None of the above

J) No one because it’s such a foolish thought

Lots of choices there.

And one of them is correct.

Think you know the answer?

The correct choice should be, I say, should be, “J.”

However, it’s not.

The correct response is “D,”  Common Council President Steve Taylor.

Here’s an open invitation to Taylor to submit to me a guest blog as to why the long-time, part-time mayoral position suddenly needs to be expanded during tough budget times to full-time, other than the fact he’d like the job someday.

Don’t hold your breath for any response.
