At Monday night's Board of Aldermen meeting, Interim Town Manager Summer Wooodard was unanimously chosen by the board to continue leading the town in its dayto- day operations as Town Manager.
Proving that hard work pays off, Woodard will take over the role that Warren Cabe left vacant back in April of this year. She had temporarily stepped into the role until the board was able to select a new manager.
“I could never express the amount of gratitude I have towards the Town Board for allowing me the opportunity to serve as the Town of Franklin Manager,” said Woodard. “It is truly an honor to serve my hometown. My roots are here. The issues that our town and the citizens of Franklin face affect us all. I want the citizens to know that they have someone to come to and express their concerns because I, too, have a vested interest in our hometown.”
