Aurora for Aurorans
Leanne knows Aurora’s thriving industries, competitive location, and thoughtful citizens offer limitless opportunities for growth and prosperity. She understands a focus on infrastructure, culture, and safe communities will make Aurora one of the best places to live.
A Government that Works for You
Aurora’s potential and needs have outgrown our city’s policies and bureaucratic processes. Inadequate programs are limiting opportunities and leaving many of our neighbors earning less than a livable wage. Leanne is certain that together citizens and city leaders can create constituent-centered policies that enhance our social, economic, and environmental health.
A Constituent Focused City Council
It will take a City Council committed to rolling up its collective sleeves to get there. We need a City Council that will work with the community to empower all Aurorans to work together to solve their community ills. Leanne is the City Council candidate who will drive action and keep local government in lockstep with our community.
