Aurora Ward II Council Member Nicole Johnston is resigning from her council seat June 14 after accepting a job in Colorado Springs, allowing her family to be closer together. Since the vacancy is occurring before the end of the elected term, City Council will appoint a new member to finish the term, which runs through late 2021. Applications from interested residents were accepted through May 20.

The city is hosting a virtual forum with the applicants Wednesday, June 16, for residents to learn more about the candidates, and the city is seeking input from residents about questions to be asked at the forum, as well as feedback on the applicants for council's consideration.

Ward II comprises the northeast area of Aurora, including neighborhoods from Buckley Air Force Base to Denver International Airport, and from Star K Ranch to the Colorado Air and Space Port.

The Aurora City Council is composed of a mayor and 10 council members. Of those 10 members, six are ward council members, representing one of the six wards that section the city. The remaining four council members are elected at large, like the mayor, to represent the entire city. The 10 members of Aurora's City Council are part-time elected officials, meaning they may all have jobs in addition to their responsibilities as council members. The mayor's position is a full-time responsibility.

Anyone with questions can email cityclerk@auroragov.org or call 303.739.7094.
