CFE's endorsed candidates: Franklin and Werner

Education in the classroom first, everything else second!

No property tax rate increase, find a way to spend less not tax more!

Reduce long-term debt... it’s the tax you keep on paying
long after those responsible leave office!

Joanna Franklin has 16 children ages 5 to 33 that have attended many Washington Township schools. She also has 7 grandchildren. Joanna is president of her neighborhood association and was elected Secretary of the Crooked Creek Community Council.

As a parent, Joanna Franklin strongly supports “academics first”, but she is also very concerned that many in our community are losing their homes because of high property taxes including the elderly, the young and poor families. Her experience with the bussing of her children convinced her of the value of neighborhood schools. Joanna is a fiscal conservative and wants the maximum amount of money directed to the classroom for education – while keeping costs and taxes under control. Contact Joanna at (317) 479-1036 or at

He is one of the MSDWT Board’s current appointees to the Washington Township Fire Protection Contribution Fund. He understands governmental budgeting and how expenses can be cut, leading to tax relief. Jack stands for a strong educational system that graduates students who can compete in the outside world, while keeping costs and taxes under control. Contact Jack at (317) 259-7141 or at
