Steve Olson for Franklin Alderman, First District

Franklin residents, I am pleased and honored to share a special message with you from Franklin First District Alderman Steve Olson whom I wholeheartedly endorse. I respectfully request that you give him your support. By far, he best represents the values and concerns of Franklin citizens and is the clear choice in the First District aldermanic race.

Dear Friends:

It has been an honor to serve the residents of the 1st aldermanic district in Franklin for the past six years.  I am seeking another term as your alderman.

The last three years in the City of Franklin have been challenging.

Safety of our children

We have had a magnifying glass placed over us by more than 72 communities who followed our lead in restricting where sex offenders could reside in our communities.  They watched us as we successfully enforced our ordinance in Circuit Court, requiring a sex offender to move from his home.  The effort required strong leadership that I am honored to provide for the safety of our children.

Holding the line on spending

Franklin experienced a sharp downturn in residential and commercial development.  It caused a budget deficit crisis in the City last year and may produce shortfalls for a while to come.  We need aldermen who understand the budget, development cycles and the effects these have on the taxpaying public.  I have been a lone voice for substantial reductions in City spending and plan on continuing to do so.

Economic development

Even while we experience dramatic fiscal issues we must not lose our focus on the continued orderly development in our City that will benefit us as community.  Development of the 27th street corridor is one of my focal points because it is our largest opportunity for high value commercial development and the creation of good paying jobs.

Managing State and Federal mandates

The State of Wisconsin continues to force local municipalities to enact new programs seemingly without regard to their impact on the community.  We need proven, experienced leaders who recognize the impacts of these programs and work to stop, change or minimize their impacts.  It is my obligation and privilege to provide that leadership on behalf of Franklin.

The issues above are important and complex, and represent only the tip of the iceberg of what faces the City in the future.  I am the candidate who has the experience and knowledge that can work to solve these and the many other issues that will come before the city.

The issues are many and the differences between my opponent and me are striking but getting the message out will be expensive.  I ask for your support for my re-election.  May I count on you to send me a check in support of independence, common sense and hard work for the City?  I will be grateful for any contribution.

Please mail your check to the address below, made out to “Friends of Steve Olson”.  Contributions of more than $100 require the name of your employer.  Individuals may donate up to $250 per year.  I cannot accept corporate contributions. 

The campaign needs locations for yard signs in support of my candidacy.  Please let me know if you would display a yard sign that we’ll put up and collect again the day after the election. 

As always, I look forward to hearing from you on any of your concerns for the City.  Please call or e-mail.

I thank you for your support.  Vote on April 6 for Steve Olson.
