MaconSense heading Macon league program

A luncheon program at noon Thursday, Oct. 13, at Tartan Hall, located in the First Presbyterian Church in Franklin, will give people an opportunity to learn about the new organization, MaconSense.

The group’s initial campaign is for safe slope development regulations. Organizers Mike Jackson and Kathy Tinsley will speak. The event is sponsored by the Macon County League of Women Voters.

MaconSense, according to a self description, is “committed to working for the future of Macon County by promoting civic engagement, being a source of information and developing community service projects. The goal is to give everyday people a voice in where the county is heading, free from political posturing and heated rhetoric.”

The lunch fee is $5, but lunch is not required. The program is free.
