Backus has the right touch

As a volunteer for the Auburn Police Department I have been at many varied city events where city employees from a wide range of departments are present. Nancy attends almost all of these events, and what stands out to me are the overwhelmingly positive comments that the city employees make about her. I have never heard one negative thing said.

They love her and appreciate the support and respect she gives them. It is one thing to say how you will lead, but when you hear only positive things said about the boss that is a huge deal.

There are many reasons why I am voting for Nancy to continue being the mayor of Auburn: her integrity, a love for Auburn, being willing to address the really difficult issues like homeless and the opioid epidemic. These issues are not easy to address, but Nancy is not willing to put them on the back burner.

I hope you will join me in re-electing Nancy Backus as mayor of Auburn so she can continue the great work that she has started.
