A blue S denotes a coveted Spinoff endorsement; a grey S = a capable candidate who didn’t quite make the cut, but this is all irrelevant in Franklin. Click here for our general backgrounder.

Franklin residents have a choice this election: vote Bill Cashmore or throw their voting papers in the ocean.

On this issue, The Spinoff Editorial Board recommends voting Cashmore. He’s a capable councillor who’s likely to be given a key finance portfolio in the next term. The ocean is a vast expanse of water that cares nought for any human endeavour, let alone pathetic instruments of local democracy.

UPDATE: You don’t actually get to vote for Cashmore at all, Franklinites. But please know that we thought of you.
