Backus has the experience, skills to be next mayor

As a longtime resident of Auburn who has served in a number of roles, most recently as a City Councilmember and a Civil Service Commissioner, I have known Nancy Backus for a long time. I am pleased to count her as a friend and wholly support her in the run for mayor.

Nancy has the financial literacy, background, education and skill set that is needed for this important job at such a critical time. No other candidate is as knowledgeable, proven and capable as Nancy. She has consistently served with grace and poise while providing leadership to the council and residents of our great city.

In addition, she understands the complexity of Auburn's advocacy position on behalf of South King County and the need to be represented in regional, state and federal government issues. If you are not at the table, then you are on the menu.

Before the last couple of administrations, I have seen Auburn be on the receiving end of many bad deals. We cannot go back to that with the other candidates who would retreat. We must go forward, and only one person can lead us there ... Nancy Backus.

I emphatically give my endorsement and vote to her while asking the rest of our residents to do the same.
