I have had the pleasure of knowing Mark O’Brien for the past 25 years. Whether it was at the ball field coaching our son or watching him lead as a member of the school board, City Council, or as interim mayor, Mark has given his best to the citizens of Augusta. It’s clear that he loves his hometown and is equipped to continue his service as Augusta’s new mayor. We can be confident that his experience, skill set, and respect for and by the community will put our city in capable hands.

I am especially looking forward to Mark’s commitment to keeping our property taxes down as he works hard to support safe and vibrant neighborhoods. Our small businesses will also benefit from his leadership. How do I know? Because Mark is open to feedback and ideas that he can carefully evaluate and use to move Augusta forward. I trust him to make the best decisions for the community.

Please take the time to go and vote on Nov. 2. Remember, Mark O’Brien for mayor — from Augusta and for Augusta!
