Franklin Seeks Third Term as Warren Mayor

WARREN, Ohio – Mayor William “Doug” Franklin will seek a third term in office, he announced this morning.

“I am proud of the accomplishments over the years,” he said in a release. “Together, with our citizens and our workers, we have made consistent and constant growth as a city. We have invested in our neighborhoods and our local business community.”

Franklin also cited new arrivals to the city, such as AutoParkit and portfolio companies at the Tech Belt Energy Innovation Center, during his tenure as well as community improvements including repaved roads and increased safety forces.

“I am running again to continue making Warren an even better city,” he said. “In every decision I take, I never forget that it is about the families of Warren.”

Franklin, the city’s first African-American mayor, has been mayor of Warren since 2012.
