It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Augusta. This community has given me so much to shape the person I am today, and it continues to do so with my kiddos. We have so much to be proud of in this city, and it all starts with the people. The greatness of Augusta is achieved by the overwhelming generosity and commitment from those who give back to our community.

This is a major reason why I hope you consider supporting Mark O’Brien for mayor of Augusta. He’s always willing to step forward and help where it is needed. I had the opportunity to serve with Mark on the city council and found him to be a great mentor. I’m so impressed with his commitment to serving for the greater good of the community, such as the food bank; CARA fields/sports; the school board; city charter; and so on. If you’ve met Mark, I bet it was likely somewhere he was volunteering. This is the leadership we need in Augusta. He’s not in it for the title; he truly cares about his hometown and has made a lifetime of selflessly giving back.

Mark will make a great mayor. He has the vision, temperament, consensus-building work ethic, and commitment to lead the city. Our community is strong and continues to move forward, even in uncertain times. Mark will build on our successes and responsibly support future investments. Mark O’Brien is the right leader for Augusta.
