3. Responsiveness and Transparency
I believe being Alderman-at-Large is much more than a title, it’s a sacred responsibility to every Auroran in every community in every ward. I will meet residents where they’re at, holding regular town halls where I will answer questions, listen to concerns, and keep residents informed. I will also be an advocate for responsiveness and transparency in other City functions. “Slips,” like those used to inform residents of the discussion to close the West Aurora Library Branch will no longer be acceptable. I will also work to convert Aurora’s politically-appointed library board into an elected board that is responsible to the voters.
4. Financial Responsibility
Going line-by-line of the City’s budget is my number one priority. I believe budgets are moral documents where we prioritize what’s most important to us. As your at-large alderman, I will collaborate with city leaders to identify redundancies, create efficiencies, and provide Aurorans with the fiscally-responsible city they deserve.
