Backus is first for education

As longtime residents of the city of Auburn, we would like to share how Mayor Nancy Backus supports the educational community to assure that our future generations will get the world-class education they deserve and that each student has the opportunity to reach their potential success.

K-12 education is very important to our family. It is vital that we make certain that our children and grandchildren are given an opportunity to be part of a functioning future society and democracy as well as individual contributors to our next generation.

Mayor Backus has shown how she supports K-12 education by working as a team member to resolve difficult issues along with finding solutions needed to provide assistance to the Auburn School District. To achieve these objectives with our children, Mayor Backus works collaboratively with government agencies and organizations to accomplish this mission.

We need to re-elect Mayor Backus, who always works toward solutions that are in the interest of our kids. Mayor Backus realizes kids are our future.

Thank you, Mayor Backus, for your tireless service to the younger generation and to the community of Auburn. It is greatly appreciated by us.

We support Mayor Nancy Backus for re-election and encourage our citizens to support her as well.

– Criss and Ray Vefik
