Chairman of Franklin Town Council Endorses Chris Zannetos for Congress

WELLESLEY, MA – On August 12, Chris Zannetos announced that he had earned the endorsement of Tom Mercer, Chairman of the Franklin Town Council in Franklin, MA.

Mercer is backing Zannetos in the crowded race for Massachusetts’ 4th Congressional District because he is the only candidate with the real-world job creation and technology experience needed to rebuild and expand the middle class in the 21st century economy.

"I’ve spent time in Franklin, getting to know the small businesses and issues most important to the people of Franklin. There is a spirit of engaged community cooperation here, as demonstrated by the creation of Contollo Mass Manufacturing Company to meet the urgent need for PPE, which in the process, also revitalized an abandoned mill property and created new jobs for the community. It’s exactly this kind of shared commitment to work with others to solve tough problems that I will bring to Congress.” said Zannetos.

Mercer chairs a nine-member Town Council that serves as the legislative body responsible for setting policy for the community. The Council serves as the local licensing authority for alcohol licenses and has several subcommittees, including Budget, Capital Budget and Economic Development.

"Chris Zannetos has spent his career creating stable, good-paying jobs for MA residents, and bringing people together to find solutions. Like so many of us, he’s frustrated by the hyper-partisanship in DC and will use his entrepreneur’s tenacity to find wins for everyone at the table,” said Mercer. “Chris is the kind of person we need in Congress to get things done for the entire district.”

In addition to Mercer’s endorsement, Zannetos has amassed an impressive list of business leaders, tech executives, and educators who stand in support of his campaign.  A full list of endorsements can be found online: https://www.chriszforma.com/endorsements.
