In the half-century I have lived in Auburn I have known many mayors.

A few years ago, when one of our neighbors called to ask me to write in John Jenkins for mayor, I asked him why.  His answer: “Because I know I can trust John.”

Until yesterday, no candidate for mayor ever took the time to come to our house to listen to my wife and my thoughts about Auburn. We had no idea who Jeff Harmon was until he walked smiling into our dooryard.

He didn’t ask for our vote, but rather asked about our concerns. It took only a few minutes to see that Jeff is the team player and problem-solver we can trust to fix what’s broken.

His clear and understandable answers to our concerns show he really knows what’s going on in Auburn.
