Sallee will run for Aurora mayor's seat
Long-time Aurora resident and two-term Aurora City Councilor Kris Sallee has announced her intent to run for mayor of Aurora.
Sallee has previously served on the Aurora Planning and Budget Committees and has been elected twice to the city council.
Sallee is a licensed health insurance agent for HealthMarkets Insurance and has previously worked for Cambia Health Solutions and Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield.
"The City of Aurora is at a crossroads. Will we continue to retain our small town qualities and encourage smart development that is an asset to our community, or will we allow outside interests to direct our future? I want to keep Aurora the place that we all love," she said upon announcing her candidacy.
Sallee said she is running on a platform of engaging Aurora citizens in a conversation about the future.
"I have learned much by listening to my neighbors about the challenges Aurora faces from growth and the economic aspirations of outsiders," she said. "As mayor, I will listen to local citizens carefully and then act to implement a shared vision of how Aurora can retain its livability and foster appropriate growth."
Friends of Kris Taylor Sallee plan a campaign kickoff on Saturday, June 16, at Aurora City Park from 4 to 6 p.m., featuring food and the live music of The Whiskey Darlings.
Aurora residents are invited to attend this family-friendly event.
