Backus committed to Auburn

Our family history runs deep through Auburn. My family had the first oil company, construction company, ice house and more. We farmed the land and had livestock.

My father, Del Heisserman, firmly believed that you invest into your town and that neighbors help neighbors. He instilled this deeply into his children and grandchildren, and we continue to follow his legacy, working to make Auburn the very best place to call home.

My husband, Fred Helser, was deeply invested in our city. He served on numerous boards, in positions of leadership and in service clubs. He also encouraged my volunteer work. I am proud to say this heart of service has continued to our children and their children.

I believe this is the heart and commitment our Mayor Nancy Backus brings to the table. She works hard to make Auburn a strong and thriving community, listening to the needs of the citizens she serves while working hard to find the solutions that will improve our quality of life and strengthen our future.

I know I will be casting my vote for Mayor Nancy Backus, and I encourage everyone to do the same.
