After all, the Franklin Cancel Culture Common Council took little time to decide to dispatch the entire Civic Celebration this summer. Ditto for the annual St. Martin’s Fair on Labor Day.
But Halloween has escaped the holiday grinches at Franklin City Hall.
At a recent meeting the Common Council approved Trick or Treating this year to be held on October 31st (that’s cool) from 4-7 pm.
But worrywart Mayor Steve Olson (has he gone ‘Karen’ on us?) just had to throw flaming poo, saying this will give Franklin a chance to see rising COVID-19 numbers rise even faster.
Olson promised the city will “issue lots of guidelines.” I shudder to imagine how potentially ridiculous they might be.
Whatever health commissioner Courtney Day comes up with you can bet how the folding chairs on the council will react.
Of course Courtney.
Whatever you say Courtney.
That’s really good Courtney.
Looking ahead, they wouldn’t dare mess with the Veterans Day ceremony or Christmas Tree Lighting, would they?
