So Largo Wales … I found your (mayoral campaign) mailing last week quite informative, if not entertaining.
Apparently, you value an education as some sort of indicator of leadership ability. Poor Abraham Lincoln. The higher the educational level, the more competent the individual. Really.
So … with this indicated ideal, a major portion of Auburn residents are not equal to your lofty prowess and therefore probably not capable of managing. That hits me right in the gut as it should every resident in this town.
I, for one, know many people with something less than a bachelor’s degree who are excellent leaders and managers. I, perhaps, am one of those.
For you to stand on a pedestal and wiggle your finger at us is distasteful and frankly cheap. Perhaps that’s why you have been associated with so many “organizations” and have come away from those as incomplete.
I do not want you as a leader.
And, let me question your touted statement about: support from five of seven (City Council members). I’m fairly certain that those “votes” include your own vote and another individual who supported both candidates.
Vote Nancy Backus.
