This shares part 3 of my conversation with Frank Falvey, of Franklin Presents, a long time Franklin resident and cable show host. This is part of a three-part series on the Town Charter, the process to change it, and some of the possible revisions that Frank and I discuss.
Links to the current Town charter (modified in 2013) and the charter report for 1995 (prior changes) are included in the show notes.
The recording runs about 40 minutes: Let’s listen to this recording of Frank and I talk about the charter.
