Mike Coffman’s 64th birthday party was a fundraiser for his run to become Aurora’s next mayor. The distinguished military veteran and former U.S. congressman has a loyal following. He has also served in the state Senate and as the state’s treasurer. Aurora is the largest suburb in Colorado and third largest city. Its population and business community is extremely diverse. Coffman grew up in Aurora and attended Aurora public schools and his family owned a small business.
“Aurora is my home and my roots are deep,” said Coffman before the candles were blown out and cake was cut. “Whatever direction Aurora takes will impact the entire state.” Included in his focus for Aurora is being business friendly and dealing with revitalization.” As we grow, we must maintain balance,“ he said. “The campaign is going well and I’m so excited. Thanks for your help!”
