Franklin Alderwoman Kristen Wilhelm is running for re-election next spring and will have no opponent. This is bad news not only for her aldermanic district (that I live in) but for the city.
Wilhelm has been one of the primary causes of the dysfunctional operation of the Franklin Common Council, a major obstructionist clearly to blame for Franklin’s lack of commercial growth. Her representation as well as her behavior at meetings have drawn deserved criticism. As long as she remains on the Council the prospects of progress remain dim.
I do get some personal consolation from another Wilhelm term. Just imagine the blog fodder she’ll provide.
Some good news. Alderwoman Susanne Mayer, a naïve follower of Wilhelm and her antics is not running for re-election after a bumbling and stumbling performance during her first and only disappointing term. No word yet on who might run for that seat.
One disaster down. But one stays.
