Coffman delivers copy of congressional remarks on Aurora’s 125th birthday to council


AURORA | The ongoing birthday celebration for the City of Aurora continued Monday night, July 25, with a visit from U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Aurora.

The congressman took part in one of Aurora City Council’s early ceremonies in regular session, presenting a copy of the Congressional Remarks he made in the U.S. House of Representatives on April 29 on Aurora’s sesquicentennial.

“From humble beginnings, Aurora has grown to be the third most-populous city in Colorado with a rich and ethnically diverse population. I have lived in Aurora since I was 6 years old and have watched with amazement the city’s transformation from a modest Denver suburb into the thriving city it is today,” Coffman said. “I am honored to have this opportunity to recognize Aurora’s 125th anniversary.”

After reading the remarks for the council and those in attendance at the meeting, Mayor Steve Hogan and a handful of council members thanked Coffman for attending that evening and for his work in Congress.
