Swearing In of our New Mayor for Aurora CO

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373 DRE# ER40011786

 

I have never been very politically charged, but my first broker was VERY involved in governmental affairs and encouraged me to attend different events.   So, I would go sometimes to that meeting at our Association.   It is cool when mayors from our City and surrounding cities come to speak on Fridays at our Association.   That information is always beneficial to our buyers! 

 

Mike Coffman was our Congressman for the State of Colorado, but did not get re-elected, and decided to run for Mayor of Aurora.    It was close, but he did win the position.    We had some new council people elected this year that are not in our court (REALTORS), so at our last Friday marketing meeting was asked to show support as REALTORS at the swearing-in.   

 

We had an incident a while back in Aurora involving an officer-involved shooting where the person died, and lots of tension with the police and "Black Lives Matter" residents.    There was a huge police presence Monday evening, along with many TV cameras, so was sure hoping there would not be any incidents!    I left before it was all over, but wanted to see Mike Coffman taking his oath.   (Sorry it is not real clear - I had to focus from way in the back of the room.)

 

 

The last time I was at City Hall for a council meeting, we as REALTORS were asked to attend and speak of the Condo Defect issue, which still has not been approved.

Good morning, Joan Cox  I enjoy local politics and especially like "working in the background" and seeing my candidate win....

Hello Joan - what happens in our own cities often makes everyday living more enjoyable than what happens at the state or national level. It does matter. A lot.

Good morning Joan. About the only thing I know about politics is honesty is nowhere to be found and ego trumps ethics! Enjoy your day!

Hi Joan... my political views are so diametrically opposed to what we have in our City and County Councils and mayor, I ignore as much as possible to keep my blood pressure down.
