Letters to the Editor

Support Backus for mayor

I'm writing to voice my support and ask other citizens of Auburn to join me in electing Nancy Backus for Mayor of Auburn.

Nancy is the right candidate for the future of Auburn as we contemplate and select new leadership to continue moving forward as an inclusive community.

Now, I've read all the letters to the editor stating that Auburn is heading in the wrong direction, and Auburn isn't more than you can imagine. I completely disagree with those negative thoughts and opinions.

I see Auburn as a community with character and huge potential for positive growth that has been well planned out and paid for without breaking the bank – like I've seen happen in neighboring communities.

The reason my family lives in Auburn is because it is a community that cares about its citizens, is safe, and focuses on providing quality events and opportunities for those willing to participate.

It is leaders like Nancy Backus who have helped Auburn reach this present point in its journey.

Nancy Backus is a candidate who cares, listens and works with all – residents, businesses and others – to find creative solutions that meet the needs of all parties involved. Nancy wants this community to keep growing to provide job opportunities for future generations, so they can afford to live in Auburn and raise another generation in this great community.

Auburn doesn't need to be fixed. It needs to be furthered. Elect Nancy Backus as mayor to keep Auburn growing and being a quality community for future generations.
