Largo gets my vote for mayor

During any political campaign, there will always be rumors. I find it interesting that so many letters say that Deputy Mayor Largo Wales backs “safe injection sites” and “sanctuary cities.”

After doing my research and talking directly to her, I found out that both of these rumors are false. This is the true danger of rumors. Please take time to research these issues by communicating with, either the deputy mayor or one of the City Council members to get the truth.

The fact that five – one being Wales herself – out of seven council members support her for her race for mayor says to me there is a problem with leadership and communication on the council.

I believe that Largo Wales can bring a strong leadership back to the council, thereby serving the city and its citizens, assuring us that they can get about the issues that really matter to us namely, public safety, economic development (especially in the downtown core) and homelessness.

Please take time to research, as I have, just what Wales really stands for. Stop thinking the rumors are truth.

Get the truth, join me in voting for Largo Wales for our next mayor of Auburn.
