'Gentle Ben' town mayor transformed his community
When first elected in 1970, Nepean, Ontario, was $22-million in the red but 30 years later his careful leadership had eliminated the entire debt
By Randy RAY Special to The Globe and Mail Friday, April 4, 2003 - Page R13
Ottawa -- For Ben FRANKLIN, there was no such thing as a two-minute drive to the corner store for a newspaper or a quick trip to a local supermarket for groceries. Inevitably, the former mayor of Nepean, Ontario, now amalgamated with Ottawa, would meet people along the way, and what started as a quick errand would extend to several hours of mingling and chit-chat with those he'd encounter along the way.
"He'd often say he was popping out for two minutes to go to the store and six hours later he'd come home," says Mary PITT, who recalled how his wife, Sherry, remembers her husband.
Ms. PITT, who worked as Mr. FRANKLIN's administrative assistant for 18 years before succeeding him as mayor in 1997, said Mr. FRANKLIN never put on any airs with his constituents, and for that, he was universally well liked. "He wasn't one to go around saying 'I'm Ben FRANKLIN and you've got to pay attention to me.' He was just Ben, Gentle Ben as some called him."
Mr. FRANKLIN, Nepean's longest-reigning mayor, died on March 22 at age 60, while awaiting a heart transplant. "Gentle Ben, " as he was known for his engaging and friendly personality, had been at the Ottawa Heart Institute since February 1, and had an artificial heart implanted March 3. He died from bleeding in the skull, caused by a weakness of blood vessels in his brain.
Mr. FRANKLIN was born on August 15, 1942, in Elgin, Ont, a community near Smiths Falls, south of Ottawa. Like his mother, he became a teacher. While teaching high-school geography in Ottawa in the early 1970s, he began writing a column for a weekly newspaper in Nepean and eventually developed an interest in politics.
He won a seat on Nepean's council in 1972 and took office in January, 1973. At the time, it was a part-time job, and Nepean was a township.
"One day he decided that if change was to happen he would have to get into politics," says Ms. PITT, who campaigned door-to-door for Mr. FRANKLIN the year he was first elected. He became mayor in 1978 and Ms. PITT joined his staff as administrative assistant two years later when he gave up his teaching job.
He left the mayor's office in 1997 because of his heart disease, his dwindling energy, and concern that continuing stress might lead to further problems.
Al LONEY, a former Nepean councillor who entered politics the same year as Mr. FRANKLIN, said Mr. FRANKLIN leaves a legacy of sound fiscal management and plenty of parks and recreational facilities in Nepean, which became part of Ottawa in January, 2001, when 11 municipalities were amalgamated to become the new city of Ottawa.
When Mr. FRANKLIN took over as mayor in 1978, Nepean was $22-million in debt, and its taxes were higher than the regional average. Thanks to Mr. FRANKLIN's pay-as-you go philosophy, the debt was eliminated and by the time Nepean was absorbed into the amalgamated Ottawa-Carleton in 2001, it also had the lowest taxes in the region.
"He emphasized the need to put more money into reserve funds, so when the time came to buy a fire truck or put up an arena, the money was there," says Mr. LONEY, who often played golf with Mr. FRANKLIN. " When we built the new city hall in 1980, it cost $24-million and we had all the money we needed to pay it off."
The former city hall building, which also houses a theatre and a public library, is now known as Ben Franklin Place. A park now under construction in the former Nepean will also bear Mr. FRANKLIN's name.
Mr. FRANKLIN's frugal bent extended to his dress, which was usually casual. His casualness "may have contributed to the fact that nobody felt intimidated by him," says Mr. LONEY.
A well-known story about Mr. FRANKLIN's lack of concern for appearances occurred when Mr. LONEY and the mayor went to California on city business. Because most of his clothes were being cleaned, Mr. FRANKLIN brought along only one pair of dress pants and Mr. LONEY had to stand in front of him at most of the meetings they attended because the mayor had dripped ketchup on his pants on their first day out.
Around the Nepean council table Mr. FRANKLIN was known as a consensus builder, who rarely let issues or political opponents get under his skin, adds Mr. LONEY. " He'd have six of the seven votes he needed and I'd say 'That's all you need.' He'd say, 'Give me a few days and I'll get that last one.'"
For two days after his death, Mr. FRANKLIN's body lay in state at Ben Franklin Place where he had presided over dozens of council meetings and where his funeral service was held on March 26. Appropriately, his casket was green, the official colour of the former city of Nepean.
He leaves his wife, Sherry; son, Brent; daughter Suzanne; brother Bill and sister Anita.
