Dear Neighbors and Friends:
Today I declare my candidacy to become the City of Franklin’s next Mayor. After thoughtful consideration of the requirements of the office as well as personal commitments I know that I can provide excellent leadership as Mayor of the great city of Franklin.
My more than two decades of service to you in various civic capacities gives me a unique perspective and level of expertise that is unmatched by other potential candidates. Because I am not a career politician, I’ll be able to provide focus to the issues that we face without the color of the next possible political office.
As a business person and civic leader I set goals, I do not make promises.
My largest goal is to return Franklin to the city that businesses and families want to live and grow. It’s a big job given the economy and our internal issues but with your help and a supportive Common Council I know we can get the job done! My second goal is to provide predictability and responsiveness in dealing with the city hall bureaucracy and myself. I’ll strive to continue to communicate with you as I have in the past. There is a lot of work to do to re-involve the community in the affairs of the City. Our citizens have always been our strength and citizen involvement has provided un-paralleled expertise and ideas that have made Franklin what it is today. Our potential is limitless and my goal is to tap the spirit and talents of the community to bring us back to the days of “100 best places to live” and “fastest growing community” status.
With your help and support we together can take Franklin to new heights as a community.
And last but not least, the campaign will be expensive. Please consider a donation (non-tax deductible) to help me get my message out. Checks should be made out to “Friends of Steve Olson.” And if you’ll display a yard sign please let me know.
Thank you and Merry Christmas.
