Cabral Franklin served as a founding board member of Better Georgia in 2011 and was an integral part of our work over the past four years. We have written the following statement:
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Cabral Franklin, a founding board member of Better Georgia and Board Chair of our education arm for the past two years. Today, not only has Georgia lost one of its brightest and best political minds, we have lost a dear friend and colleague. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Candice, his mother, former Mayor Shirley Franklin, and his entire family.”
We know that this blog post and statement are entirely inadequate to show our love and admiration for Cabral but it’s the best we can do under the circumstances. We’ll have more to say soon.
