Feelings are not facts

Having no good arguments, many Nancy Backus supporters offer poor ones.

There are many who like Backus and believe we should re-elect her mayor. So, why not make a real case for her?

Rather than articulating constructive reasons why Backus should be re-elected, Ron Copple, Jim Mondt and others instead offer-up false comparisons, spurious anecdotes and empty baseless portrayals slamming Largo Wales.

For instance, Largo Wales recent mailer showed how diligently she has prepared herself for public service, and how she has effectively applied that fine education over the years to serve the people of the City of Auburn. Largo didn’t waggle her finger and she doesn’t claim to be an Abraham Lincoln (somehow supposedly under-educated), just a far more well prepared and proven effective leader than Backus who will be an excellent mayor.

Support the best candidate, Largo Wales
