I just wanted to put my two cents in on this whole “merger” fiasco.

I am voting against a merger. I think it is a really ill-conceived idea. Why don’t we just bring in Sabattus, Greene, Turner, Poland and Durham, as well? And why stop there? Let’s merge with Lisbon, Topsham — all the way to Brunswick. And then, let’s start a contest to decide what the new city should be called. Then we can invite everyone out for pizza on the Joint Charter Commission’s tab.

I’ll be glad when the nonsensical merger idea is finally put to rest in November. Then the public can stop having to listen to those high and mighty people preaching about what they think is good for those of us who are proud to live in our respective cities of Lewiston and Auburn.
