Who’s running for mayor of Franklin?

The stage is now set for Franklin’s spring mayoral contest. Incumbent Mayor Steve Olson will face Franklin Alderman John Nelson who is giving up his Common Council seat to oppose Olson.

There had been speculation that Basil Ryan would also run, but he did not turn in nomination papers. With only two candidates there will be no costly February primary.

Part of me wanted to see Ryan AGAIN toss his hat into the ring. Arguably in a primary he and Olson could have won, preventing Nelson from advancing to the general election.

Now wouldn’t that have been a kick in the teeth!!!
