    This Council and Mayor ought to worry more about the absence of enciomoc growth in this City, rather than whether an alderman is officially absent or present what a how ridiculous waste of time. Alderman Taylor’s public tirades carry little or no influence with Olson’s constituents; but they just may with his own.Alderman Steve Taylor needs to reset his priorities and try to set aside his personal animosity and differences with Alderman Olson and those who disagree with him and get to work for the People of Franklin, especially his constituents.

Leave a Condolence
