Citizen of the Week: Fran Swensen
Fran Swensen is this week’s Citizen of the Week. Swensen was nominated by Mickey Schneider, who said Swensen saved the day during a recent storm. Swensen woke up smelling gas, Schneider said, and called 911 to turn the gas off. “A tree on the corner of the two lots had been ripped out of the ground by the wind and dumped on our other neighbors’ house,” Schneider said. “Needless to say, if Fran had not woken up or gone outside, this whole neighborhood would have blown up.”
“So I am nominating her for Citizen of the Year,” Schneider said, “on behalf of the Emporia Street neighborhood. A week isn’t enough for this big of a save!”
