City of Aurora confirms closed-door council decision to end censure of Jurinsky

Aurora Sentinel: A week after a majority of Aurora City Council members voted to throw out allegations pending against Danielle Jurinsky, the city has doubled down on its assertion that the council did nothing wrong by deciding the matter in a closed meeting.

City Attorney Dan Brotzman publicly acknowledged the decision to shelve the censure process for the first time on Monday, saying the council “gave direction” to city staffers to reach a settlement with Jurinsky’s attorney, David Lane, that will address the scope of the investigation, how attorney fees will be paid and other topics.

The conflict between Jurinsky and Councilmember Juan Marcano boiled over in late January, after Jurinsky belittled police Chief Vanessa Wilson on a talk-radio show and described efforts to have Deputy Chief Darin Parker replaced. The remarks were made during an interview with local radio host Steffan Tubbs on KNUS.
