Auburn City: Try shopping local

I have been a true advocate of the shopping in Auburn practice for a very long time. I have remodeled my home, furnished and decorated both inside and out, landscaped including complete sprinklers, and a well. I buy my cars and parts here. Never do I leave town for large expenditures. My concern and gripe is the city of Auburn hires out-of-town contractors to repair water and sewer problems, and then has out-of-town companies repair the asphalt. Auburn and surrounding communities have a legion of licensed and well-qualified contractors ready and more than able to handle any repairs needed. Guess what? These contractors employ local people. Auburn, “come to the party.” You would like to help our community prosper? Be part of the answer, not the problem. AL BALDONI, Auburn
