About Charlie Richardson

  • “I will oppose any attempts to raise taxes in Aurora. Our sales tax is already one of the highest in the metropolitan area. I believe instead of burdening our residents and small businesses with higher taxes, our City should live within its means.”
  • “We must obtain the maximum amount of funding for Ward 4 parks and recreational facilities. I will fight in every possible way to make Utah Park the best recreation area in Aurora.”
  • “Regatta Plaza represents an incredible opportunity for Ward 4. I will ensure that our community is developed the right way. These redevelopment opportunities like Regatta Plaza bring jobs and help our local economy thrive.”​
