Hi Neighbors!

After months of FCA pushing for the Ethics Board to be reinstated, review and consideration has now made its way to the agenda on Tuesday’s Common Council meeting. This is an important issue that has the potential to improve our city and how it is run.

“Item G6 - Review and Consideration of Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 19, Subchapter III, Code of Ethics for Public Officials and Employees, and the Former Repealed Franklin Municipal Code Section 36, Code of Ethics (Alderman Nelson).”

How Can you Help ensure transparency and integrity are considered in all city decisions?

Here are THREE important steps you can take to ensure our voices are heard now and in the future.

#1- We need EVERYONE to call the Franklin Alderman (Numbers below) and tell them VOTE IN FAVOR OF REINSTATING THE ETHICS BOARD!

#2- We need EVERYONE to email the people on the list below:
