The Tauer era will come to an end this year with an election of a new mayor of Aurora in November.
Ed Tauer and his father, Paul, are the only mayors Aurora has known since the citywide elected office was created in 1995.
The frontrunner for the job is former Aurora City Councilman and political activist Steve Hogan. He began politics as a Democrat, but is now a Republican. At his announcement, he had already collected $100,000 in contributions. This may be another low-key mayor’s race.
