As mayor of Augusta, I am fortunate to work with a City Council that I believe is one of the best anywhere. The chemistry on this Council, especially during the past year, has been outstanding. If only those in Washington would work together for solutions like our City Council does, we would all be better served.

I am proud to endorse at-large Councilor Cecil Munson for re-election. His service to his constituents is superior, and I have come to learn just what a good man Cecil is. He is also the fiscal conscience of the Council.

I am also pleased that Ward 3 Councilor Patrick Paradis will be returning to the council, since he has no opponent. Pat’s eloquence and passion for representation of the north end of Augusta is legendary.

Please join me in voting for Cecil Munson for re-election. He does, indeed, work hard for all of us.

Mayor William R. StokesCity of Augusta
