Fraudulent accusations at First Franklin Financial

Three former employees at First Franklin Financial are being accused of fraudulent activity, with one employee creating various fraudulent loans worth nearly $40,000 and the two other employees pocketing more than $700 in cash payments from customers.

Branch Manager Marie Roland and Regional Operations Director Harriet Healey Welch told Madison City Police that they began suspecting a manager, assistant manager and customer service representative of stealing First Franklin Financial funds back in September.

“Welch then explained her suspicion of fraudulent activity stemmed from a manager who called and advised her about a personal loan created by the manager at this location,” wrote Officer Johnson in the police report. According to reports, this loan was found to be a fake after it was discovered that it was made out to a man who was in prison at the time the loan was approved. The manager who created the loan also had a personal relationship with the man. According to the police report, at the end of September, the manager admitted to the fraudulent loan created for the man in the amount of $1,313.32. After further investigation, Welch alleges that the former manager created numerous fraudulent loans under random names for an approximate amount of $39,765.

Francia Wisnewski announces her candidacy for Kulik's seat

MONTAGUE — If elected to the state house, Francia Wisnewski plans to be an advocate for local schools, farm workers, social services and transportation in the rural communities she would represent.

On Thursday evening, Wisnewski became the fourth person to announce her candidacy for the 1st Franklin District, following Rep. Stephen Kulik’s announcement last month that he will not run for reelection.

Wisnewski is a 17-year resident of Franklin County and has been involved with local politics for a number of those years.

“To me, this is an opportunity to help amplify the voices of my community,” Wisnewski said. “I have been in the trenches working with the people and I want to take this opportunity to take it up a notch.”

While Kulik’s announcement came as a surprise to her, Wisnewski said this opening provided an opportunity to run for a position she had thought about holding for a long time.

Wisnewski plans to continue the work of a “key legislator”— she said about Kulik. She would like to have “the same reputation he had in the community and to continue the collaboration with other legislators.” Wisnewski hopes to become even more visible to constituents in the communities, offering accessible office hours.
