Laura & Jeff LueloffAurora Residents As residents of Aurora since 2004 we have witnessed the tremendous growth and expansion of our town – including population, infrastructure, services and economic development. I have known Tom Markas since 2015 during our shared time on the Aurora Trails and Active Transportation Advisory Committee.It was as clear then as it is now that Mayor Mrakas has a progressive, genuine and authentic approach to leadership. His ability to connect with the community while continuously supporting and advocating for the citizens of our Town is apparent on a daily basis. Throughout the pandemic, Mayor Mrakas not only kept our community informed he also demonstrated outstanding support for local businesses and the safety of our citizens. His open communication and leadership approach has been exactly what Aurora needed during challenging times. It is also important to note, Tom has been a strong voice and advocate outside of our community with his involvement on Committees such as the Small Urban GTHA Mayors and the Provincial OMB Working Group – Further demonstrating his commitment to advocacy on critical issues.My husband Jeff and I fully endorse Tom Mrakas in the upcoming municipal election to continue as Mayor for the Town of Aurora.
