Aurora mayor to seek re-election as write-in candidate

Mayor Mark Drury initially planned to retire

(AURORA, Ind.) -- Mayor Mark Drury is seeking a second term in a unique way this November.

Earlier this year, he announced he would not seek re-election with the hopes of welcoming in a new administration.

"In February, it was my hope to pass on the reins to a new administration. It appeared that due to the loss of time with COVID, key projects I was hoping to complete for the City were not going to happen," Drury said.

Drury says several projects gained traction this summer which has led him to reconsider his future.

"These key opportunities for progress in our city can be accomplished with more time," Drury added. "I believe it would be a disservice to the community if I did not seek re-

election to ensure these projects happen for Aurora."

Mayor Drury will have to lean on community members to vote for him as a write-in candidate as his name will not appear on the ballot.

Candidates who have filed for Aurora Mayor include democrat Melvin Kremer, Jr and republican Patrick Schwing.

The incumbent mayor says he is proud of completed projects such as the new aquatic center, street paving, sidewalk reconstruction, infrastructure improvements and other quality of life projects.

Drury says his top priorities will be the Market Street reconstruction, Kopp property development on Highway 148,  The Northside Connector Trail and Fifth Street housing extension.

"My availability around the clock and my familiarity with projects and day-to-day operations have been an asset to our community and have both protected and prospered the City of Aurora," Drury added.

Aurora did open the Family Aquatic Center last summer which you can watch here.
