I would prioritize staffing in the Police Department. Aurora has gained many hotel and hospital facilities without appropriately increasing our Police Department. According to a study our officers do not have sufficient time to engage in proactive patrol. In other words they are always rushing from one call to another pending call.
My second priority is road surface improvement. Our roads are rated as fair. If we do not respond with curative maintenance in a timely fashion we end up having to spend more total dollars later.
My style of conflict resolution is to not do it publicly but speak privately with the person you disagree with in a mature and calm fashion.
