Kudos to Haugen

Even if, and there is large doubt, that City Council member Virginia Haugen had any involvement in posting a sign on the large piece of rust over Auburn Way South.
In this man’s opinion, the sign could have been much larger to hide the rust. Seems to me that this was nothing more than a exercise in free speech. When they don’t seem to listen in session, they “heard” that sign.
The mayor and other “city officials” need to get a life and firm up some realistic plan to improve the downtown Auburn area, which only speaks of Main Street businesses.
Those very costly dragonfly adornments now gracing Main Street are an example of the shallow thinking that goes on in the meetings. Auburn is headed toward being another of those little cities that have a lot of antique shops to “bring the people downtown.”
Too bad that the city and police cannot spend as much time in investigation of the very frequent graffiti/taggers that continue to deface the city AND private properties of others.
We need more Virginia Haugen’s in the council chambers.
