Aurora brings back gang program
(Aurora, Colo.) As much as violence impacts youths in Aurora, the council still can’t agree on what to do about it. A majority of council members who identify as conservatives voted Monday to reinstate the city’s gang prevention program. The previous council, controlled by Democrats, had instead sold the public on a large-scale investment in the city’s youth that would have involved non-profit agencies.
