The Aurora City Council will have a hearing giving Corporations the right to one vote. This will allow some people the right to vote twice, once for themselves and once for their corporation. It may also allow those that are not citizens of Aurora to cast a vote.
The Aurora City Council will be having a hearing about the Gaylord Entertainment deal, and we encourage all citizens concerned about this to have their voices heard by testifying. The public hearing will be held during the upcoming City Council meeting on Monday the 22nd, 2011 at 7:30PM, at the Aurora Municipal Center located at 15151 East Alameda Parkway, Aurora, CO 80012. (Please, arrive early to put your name in to speak.)
