FRCOG Executive Committee Has Opening for Regionally Elected Seat

The Franklin Regional Council of Governments anticipates an opening for one of two regionally elected, non-partisan leadership seats that provide guidance and oversight to our organization. The candidate(s) will be on the ballot in every Franklin County town for general election in November. The term for the seat is four years and begins in January 2023. Candidates cannot be from the same town as any of the other four  members of the Executive Committee,  which currently includes a representative from Colrain, Greenfield, and Montague, and one open seat that has yet to be appointed for the new term by the Franklin Regional Regional Planning Board.
