Why I’m Running

for Aurora City Council At Large

I am running for Aurora City Council At Large because I believe our city needs a leader with a heart for the people. I have called Aurora my home for over 30 years. I am a pastor, husband, father, grandfather and dedicated servant leader in my community. I know the future is only as bright for Aurora as the leadership governs it to be. I believe the people of Aurora deserve to live in safe and secure neighborhoods, to drive on roads without potholes and to have access to affordable housing with a pathway to home ownership. I have been fortunate in my life and I want to make sure I hold the door open for future generations to achieve the same or better.
