Having the ingredients to lead the city

Largo Wales wants to tackle issues facing the community of Auburn, such as maintaining public safety; addressing the homeless population; providing safe and walkable neighborhoods; providing increased street maintenance and freeing up traffic congestion; keeping our seniors in their homes as long as possible; continuing youth involvement with programmed activities; supporting economic growth for a increased tax base and in doing so, providing jobs that support families.

Largo’s community service, volunteer activities and leadership skills are based on many of her activities, including the Auburn Food Bank (past president); Auburn Kiwanis (past president); ACAP (former executive director); Seattle & King County Board of Health Committee member; Auburn School District executive (for special education and other programs); and Auburn Youth Resources (past president).

She was named Auburn Reporter Citizen of the Year and chosen Auburn Rotary Citizen of the Month to name a few noteworthy attributes of an active community person who wants to continue her pursuit in the political arena.

Largo is a very compassionate people person, helping young people reach their goals in education. She will use the same energy and drive as mayor of Auburn with her experience in local government, knowledge of what is needed to provide Auburn citizens a good quality of life.

Please join me in supporting Largo for mayor.
