Franklin Town Council 2021 Candidate Forum Videos

The 2021 Municipal Elections are tomorrow and here are two videos of the forums held for candidates for Franklin Town Council. Five people are seeking three open seats. Another seat will open up after Vice-Mayor Jack Horton will vacate his seat after he is sworn in as the new Mayor in December.

The polls will be open from 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM at the following locations:
• Franklin Town Hall 95 NE Main St, Franklin, NC 28734
• Highlands Civic Center 600 N 4th St. Highlands, NC 28741

This Municipal election is for residents that live in the city limits only.
The Primary election on March 8th 2022 will be for all Macon County residents.

Here are the sample ballots for both Franklin races and the Highlands races.

The first candidate forum was held on October 14th at the Macon County Public Library and was organized by Brittney Lofthouse of The Macon County News and Shopping Guide and Jessi Stone of The Smoky Mountain News. The event was webcast on Facebook.
