Why I LOVE Aurora

When I joined the U.S. Army in 1988, I knew that one of the toughest challenges I would face would be leaving behind the Aurora friends, family, and neighbors that provided so much love and support in my life.

That challenge was very real for me, but I also learned something equally important: There is no place I’d rather be than in my hometown of Aurora.

I’ve had the privilege of serving our country and visiting communities around the globe, but there was never a single place that compared to Aurora.

That’s because the city of Aurora understands what it means to be a real community.  A community is more than just a collection of people living in one place.  Being a part of a community means taking care of each other, giving children great schools and safe, open spaces, building a productive, sustainable economy, and volunteering your time to help those who need a little extra hand. Aurora is that kind of community and more.

For the last 14 years, as a state representative, I’ve tried to help sustain and grow that sense of community, and now I want to build on that success by serving as your mayor.

I’ve seen what Aurora can do, and I know our best days are still to come.

I hope you’ll join me in making the future a bright one for all of our families.
