Turns out the person trying to give Aurora’s mayor more power is Aurora’s mayor

9NEWS: Aurora Mayor Mike Coffman previously said he would not confirm if he led the initiative to give his office more power until it made the ballot.

A spokesperson for the “Yes on Term Limits and Empowering the Mayor” initiative announced Tuesday that the measure had enough signatures to go to voters. Wednesday, Coffman told 9NEWS he was behind the proposal.

“Oh, I was involved early on,” Coffman said. “I just think that it’s, you know, hindsight, who knows, but I felt that it’s not about transparency. It was about, to me, it wasn’t an issue until it made the ballot.”
