We need people in Augusta who will […]

    As mayor, Dowling worked to keep taxes low

    Bill Dowling as mayor always listened and recommended what he thought was best for the residents of Augusta. One thing that Bill did that truly stands out is that he always made sure that taxes were maintained at a level people could afford.
