I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly state my support for Mike Holmes, a terrific candidate to serve our community on the Auburn City Council. Mike works quietly and effectively to make significant improvements in our city government and faces significant challenges due to the financial changes in our economy as well as major upcoming developments that would impact our community for generations to come. Mike has been working over the past year since (he was) mayor of Auburn to involve the city and the business districts in a combined effort to improve the marketing of the Auburn area to attract more business, visitors and promote tourism. The California Welcome Center/Placer County Visitors Bureau relocating to Central Square Downtown in the old City Hall Building will be a major boost in helping promote Auburn and add the needed public restrooms which have been under discussion for years and a major needed improvement in the Central Square area for our future community events. I urge voters to elect a dedicated community leader by joining me in voting for Mike Holmes on Nov. 2. MARK C. SMITH, Auburn
