Charles Israel announces campaign for Franklin City Council seat

Dear Citizens of Franklin:

After many prayers and self-reflection, I have qualified to run for the City of Franklin City Council Post 3.

This comes at a difficult time during the current global pandemic and economic crisis coupled with the tragic position opening caused by the death of Mayor Rogers.

While I am not native to Heard County, I have family that has been here for two decades.

I have lived in Heard County for the past nine years and after falling in love with the community I purchased my home in the City of Franklin five years ago.

I have had three children attend Heard County High School and have two more entering in the fall.

Whenever feasible I shop and eat local and hire local workers when I need things fixed.

I have been a band booster for the Marching Braves and a member of the Touchdown Club.

In 2018 I married my lovely wife, Tricia, on the football field at Heard County High where I have attended every football game since 2012.

I support our local kids and use social media platforms to try to create opportunities for them to attend college. I attend many of the City Council meetings.

I have 25 years of experience working in municipal governments including leadership roles. I hold an Associate’s degree in Homeland Security from Georgia Military College and a Government Leadership certification from Carl Vinson Institute at the University of Georgia.

I envision a future for Franklin of keeping local business sustainable while continuing our small-town way of life.

I humbly request your support to allow me to represent you. Feel free to visit me at Facebook.com/israel4franklin.

Your questions, comments, concerns, and ideas are always welcome as we work together to pull our city through these times.

Sincerely,

Charles Israel
