As usual, several hundred people voted no. In fact, every year approximately the same number of people vote no. The budget passed, it almost always does, but the naysayers get their say.The naysayers always get their say. Yes, I agree.
That is actually the glory of the election. The voters get to decide. Everyone entitled to vote should vote. It should not be some number of the populace that is motivated to vote that directs the whole.

Then the results will be clear.
Franklin voters need to exercise their civic duty on May 22!
