Elect Wales for mayor

We need a mayor committed to this community with an extraordinary education, leadership experience and energy to make decisions that will improve the quality of life for our residents and business owners.

Largo Wales is that candidate.

Her professional resume and community track record as a civic-minded servant leader is well documented, endorsed and sets her apart as the top candidate.

As citizens, we are hiring a six-figure-income executive to run a municipal corporation and one who will negotiate issues that impact the future of our community.

When you compare our streets and services to our neighboring community of Federal Way you can see the difference leadership makes. In our society, there are standards we expect for those who lead. If we want more, we must expect more.

Six years ago, Largo was sought after to run for office by a former, regionally respected Auburn deputy mayor. I personally served with Largo on the City Council and was a mayoral candidate myself. I experienced firsthand her fearless and refreshing “say it how it is” and “let’s get something done” attitude. She listens, studies and leads.

Largo has been elected twice by her peers to implement her leadership qualities as Auburn’s deputy mayor. As a candidate for mayor, she is endorsed by a majority of our city council members.

Let’s raise the standard in Auburn, and vote with me for Largo Wales as our next mayor.
