Wales gets my vote for mayor

I have lived in Auburn for a long time and still visit friends and family who live there.

When I read about two women running for mayor, I was glad to hear Largo Wales was one of them.

Largo Wales is a real leader. When I looked into her background, the current mayor doesn’t hold a candle to her. I don’t know of anybody who has been able to take command of meetings like she has.

When the subject of car license fees came up, she was the only one who stood against it.

I wish I could still vote in Auburn. I’d like to cast a vote for Largo Wales for mayor. Auburn needs a change, and Wales is someone who can make changes for the good.
