Letters to the Editor

Mayoral candidate needs answers

I would like an opportunity to address the letters in support of Nancy Backus for mayor. If Backus has supported so many programs financially in Auburn, why are we sitting with an empty jail, only to be filled with a construction crew setting up their home so they can remodel the second floor?

Why hasn't Backus filled positions in our police department when we are in great need of officers and funding is there? Why are we shipping officers out of our city to book and jail criminals, leaving our streets vulnerable to crime?

Why has our water bill increased by 50 percent?

I hope Nancy Backus will debate with John Partridge. We will then have our answers. Let's see if she is up to meeting the public and answering our questions. I hope to hear from you.
