Aurora councilmembers defend Paris trip sponsored by city
(Denver, Colo.) A pair of Aurora City Council members defended their city sponsored trip to Paris Monday after the mayor called it extravagant. Council members Juan Marcano and Crystal Murillo jetted to France last week to attend the International Making Cities Livable conference. When Mayor Mike Coffman learned of the trip, which staff approved, he made a fiery Facebook post Monday.
