I am proud to endorse Auburn Mayor Jonathan LaBonte for re-election this Nov. 3.

It is no secret that Auburn has seen economic hardship. For decades, this city has struggled to retain job opportunities and the young families that come with them. When political leaders were challenged on this, the response was always, “It could have been worse.”

Jonathan LaBonte has challenged that attitude. As Auburn’s mayor, LaBonte relentlessly advocates that the city can do better, working tirelessly to promote the city and bring job opportunities back home.

The results speak for themselves. Anyone can look around and see businesses setting up shop again, including millions in new investment from job creators who want to be a part of the future that is being built here in Auburn.

Auburn’s number one advocate should continue his work for the city. Auburn residents should re-elect our mayor, Jonathan LaBonte, on Nov. 3.

Sen. Eric Brakey, Auburn
