Vote for the City of Auburn’s New Mascot!

The City of Auburn has announced it is getting a new mascot! The mascot will be unveiled this summer as the finale of the 2021 Auburn Days Parade.

“The response to Archie and Chance has been so wonderful, we thought the city deserved its own mascot,” said Mayor Nancy Backus.

To select the official mascot of Auburn the city is asking residents to vote for their favorite animal.

To determine the choices for residents to vote on City Council created a special selection ad hoc committee. “The committee has worked for almost two years. It was a difficult task but we narrowed down the selection,” said Deputy Mayor Claude DaCorsi.

Each resident who votes will also be entered into a drawing to name the mascot and ride on the mascot float in the parade.

Head over to by April Fools to cast your vote!  an otter stands at a blue ballot box casting its vote for which fish is best. "April Fools!" is written on the front of the ballot box.

    Well, if the vote were real and not an April Fool’s joke, I would have voted for ‘Crow With Fries,’ the metal monstrosity down near the Auburn library that the city paid $50,000 to erect. 🙂 My vote would go to the crow, since we have so many of them in Auburn anyway…might as well become the official mascot.
