In today’s climate, politicians create ideas that attempt to separate municipalities, not bring them together. I am proud that my city’s mayor, Jonathan LaBonte, does not fall into that category.

Labonte has spent his time working to lift up well thought-out ideas and plans that reflect a desire to solidify my beloved community. He uses facts and outside-the-box thinking in order to establish Auburn as a place to maintain and attract business, to raise children, to retire, to enjoy the outdoors and discover what makes this place called Auburn special.

Whenever I have engaged with Labonte, I have been pleased that his responses — both verbal and in action — have always been about the city and those of us who have made it home.

I hope my Auburn neighbors join me in voting for Jonathan LaBonte for mayor.

Sara Bartlett, Auburn
