Support Backus for Mayor

Auburn residents will be making an important decision this election season. We have the opportunity to vote for Nancy Backus as our next mayor.

It is a time of growth of both Auburn's population and business base. Thoughtful and experienced leadership is needed to guide that growth and build and maintain strong communication with all Auburn citizens. Nancy has that experience, vision and leadership ability.

I had the honor of working with Nancy for eight years on the City Council and found her an independent thinker who could be counted on to listen, learn and make the tough decisions. Nancy has a talent for dissecting complicated issues, listening carefully to all sides and defining what is best for Auburn. She excels at encouraging citizen involvement and guiding people through the sometimes challenging governmental process.

Nancy is well respected at both the regional and national level through her committee work at both levels. She's there to represent Auburn's best interests and return tax dollars to Auburn. As mayor, Nancy will serve Auburn with professionalism, skill and dedication, and Auburn will be better for her service.
