Largo for mayor

My house sits off the road up a steep driveway. The door bell does not ring that often, so when it did I was surprised. What impressed me even more was the very genuine, down-to-earth determination of the woman at the door.

Largo Wales, deputy mayor running for mayor of Auburn.

Her common sense approach coupled with collaboration and support of four council members and community leaders has my vote.

Another thing, reading Largo’s campaign literature, I was impressed with all the Auburn community activities and leadership qualifications. Largo has amassed many, many attributes in her community volunteer work, outstanding education as a Fulbright Scholar, and significant government experience as a City Council member through her many appointments on King and Pierce county committees representing the City of Auburn.

We need an elected official such as Largo leading our city government.
