Backus has the 'chops'
I plan to vote for Nancy Backus for mayor and I think you should, too. Let me tell you why.
I spent an afternoon talking with her, and I found a person who really listens and who loves Auburn. For my mayor, I want someone who will make judgments based on logic and principle. Nancy will do that. She knows why she does what she does. I like that.
People who say she will follow the current mayor's policies underestimate her. Nancy is a strong woman with her own values and priorities, and her style is collaborative and inclusive. I like that, too.
Auburn has never had a woman as mayor. The time has come. Five out of six of the other council members endorsed her bid for mayor. Building on working relationships is how real progress is made.
Besides the chemistry, she has the chops. Only the most effective can survive as a financial manager at Boeing Defense, Space and Security. If she is elected, she will have to quit that good job. That's commitment.
She has the education, training and experience to be a great mayor. She loves Auburn and wants to lead us. What more could we ask for? When I finished talking with her, I went away thinking, "we need her. How can I help her get elected?"
Please vote for Nancy Backus for mayor.
