I applaud Jeff Harmon’s decision to run for mayor of Auburn. He would be a breath of fresh air for the city.

I’ve known Jeff going back to our law enforcement days when he was deputy chief of the Maine State Police. He is bright, has high moral character and is a true public servant.

My daughter Karla babysat his children years ago. They are an exemplary family.

Jeff has heard complaints of the residents of Auburn and Lewiston and said he “will work collaboratively to foster participatory decision making, while treating everyone with dignity and respect.”

Harmon would protect the drinking water of Auburn and Lewiston. He isn’t running for personal gain as demonstrated by his activism in the group Citizens for Sensible Growth — he would fight against zoning changes that would benefit only a few.

Jeff Harmon isn’t about personal wealth, because he cares about people’s health and safety.
