To my Living in Aurora blog readers: I am running for Mayor of Aurora.
It is a great opportunity now to step up and serve our Aurora community at the council level. I want to be your voice at the Council table.
However, regardless of what happens after the municipal elections, my photo blogging about Aurora will continue. Perhaps new ideas will evolve.
In the meantime, you can learn more about me and my vision for Aurora, a Resilient Community, at the Anna Lozyk Romeo for Mayor campaign site.
On a personal note, I am meeting many interesting people in Aurora, and one of the recurring comments I’m getting is, “It seems you have done some outstanding work, and we hardly hear about you. You are unknown to the community.” Well, perhaps unknown but not new for sure. Well, there are reasons. The majority of the time, I am behind the camera. I am shooting places where not many are interested in seeing, like demolition and construction sites. And for the last 8 years, I have spent my time, according to many, in the most boring place in town, the Council Chambers. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed every moment of it.
To conclude, I hope you’ll take the time to get to know me and that you’ll support me on October 24, 2022.
I Want to Hear from You
