Win or lose, Franklin alderman candidates took a collective sigh of relief on Tuesday night, as months of campaigning and the fall election came to an end.

After spending all day at polling precincts, Ward 2 Alderman Dana McLendon said, “Right now, I’m going to go home and watch baseball and drink beer.” He noted that election night conflicted with Game 1 of the World Series.

Martin hosted a party at her home for friends and family, which was catered by the Cool Cafe; snacks include fried chicken, charcuterie boards, chocolate dipped strawberries and other goodies.

Ward 1 Alderman Beverly Burger wound down her night at Brixx Pizza on West McEwen Drive, where she and friends enjoyed pizza and drinks, along with specialty cookies designed by a friend that read “Thanks, Bev Burger” and “Thanks y’all. Bev!”
