I am endorsing Tom Mrakas for Mayor of Aurora because I feel very strongly about how Aurora moves forward in the next four years. I believe Tom is a candidate that has proven he can lead effectively; is accessible if I have questions or concerns; and is always open to a discussion when we have a difference of opinion. Listening to both sides helps clarify decisions. Tom encourages people to come together and is regularly out in the community supporting local initiatives. I have never seen so many activities drawing people to our downtown core. A Mayor who is visible in the Community is important to me and for all of these reasons, I am happy to be endorsing him.
