I’m Renie Peterson and I believe that I can make a difference in Aurora, both today, and TOMORROW! I’m a native Coloradoan and have been a resident and active member of the Aurora business and political community for decades. I know that I’ve got sensible insights into what our city needs. Together, we can help Aurora balance the trend of rapid growth yet not turn away from the needs of the community at large. Join me in building a better Aurora!
