The proposed merger of Lewiston and Auburn is a silly idea. First of all, what would happen to all the streets that have the same names? Maps and GPS systems would have to change. At what cost?

I don’t know how many people have printed address labels, but those would become useless. The labels are not Lewiston and Auburn; it is either Lewiston at 04240 or Auburn at 04210. I have enough self-addressed stickers to wallpaper a room.

If both cities have money enough to throw away, they should fill potholes and stop spending money on foolish ideas.
