I am writing in response to a recent letter that disparaged citizens’ desires for amenities in Auburn’s new high school.

As a disabled senior citizen without any children in the school system, I still wish that the new school, which will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Auburn, to become a world-class facility, with both a nice auditorium and a turf field for athletics. Such a field has already shown its value in Lewiston during bad weather conditions and could possibly generate rental revenue from other districts.

I am more than willing to pay a bit more in taxes to provide Auburn and its future leaders such a world-class facility.
