I think Jeff Harmon for mayor of Auburn would be a welcome change.

The Lake Auburn watershed is at risk of losing its enviable status as a pure water supply for our community. It is one of a handful of pure water resources left in the entire country that does not require an expensive water treatment facility to make it usable for our sized city.

According to Lewiston’s Public Works 2022 report, if water qualify of the lake goes down it could require a $40-$60 million filtration plant with operational costs of additional $1 million per year.

Mr. Harmon would do a much better job of protecting Lake Auburn’s water supply. And I think he would bring more civility and balance back to Auburn’s day-to-day governance and decision making for the betterment of our town.
