Greetings to the Town of Franklinton:

As mayor of our town, I have had increased concerns about the recent gun violence involving the youth of our community. In spite of these misguided actions, our town is truly blessed that no lives have been lost as a result of these shootings. Security efforts have been increased and we are seeking the help of our parents as well as those who are concerned about our youth.

Parents, please try to be aware of the location of your children (youth) at all times. Please keep all guns secure that are in your home. Encourage your children to avoid situations and people that could result into dangerous involvement. Let your children know that they can rely on you for guidance and if they are faced with out of control situations.

If you need the advice of our local authorities, please contact our office and we will direct you to the proper authorities. We are here for support. Our police department can be reached 24 hours a day. Please do not hesitate to call.

Let’s work together for the well being of our youth and community.

Psalm 133:1 “How good and pleasant it is for brothers to live together as one!”

Gregory Route Sr.

Mayor of the Town of Franklinton
