Support Backus, and learn more

I went to a meet and greet with Mayor Nancy Backus recently and learned a great deal about what she and council members have been doing over the past few years along with projects in the works and how to handle our problems.

Nancy gave straight and honest answers that proved to me she knows what she’s doing and is smart to include her experts in various fields when it comes to advice and direction.

I went from “never Nancy” to a full-fledged supporter.

It didn’t hurt that several police officers I know told me she’s the only good choice. Please try to get to a meeting to have your questions answered.
