I’m running for Franklin County’s 6th District Magistrate, because it’s time for a change!

Whisman Postcard

 I’m excited to announce my candidacy for Franklin County 6th District Magistrate.  Growing up in Bald Knob, I’m proud to be a product of this place and the people who instilled in me a love of my community, and a desire to give back. I’ve dedicated my life to helping others, building on the foundations of the past and creating a better future.

If you know me, you know how passionate I am about our community and our potential. We’re at the beginning of a transformational era with great potential but we won’t realize that future with the ideas and leadership of the past.  It will require dedicated and skilled leadership that I will provide for the 6th district and all of Franklin County.  I’m excited to continue the work I began many years ago, helping make our community better for everyone.  I ask that you join my campaign by making a contribution, volunteering, and voting so that we can have a better tomorrow!

VOTE ERIC E. WHISMAN on May 17 Primary Election, for a better future!
