About this Article

Aurora alderman-at-large candidates Bob O'Connor and Rick Lawrence don't agree on much, but they both would like to see the city begin video taping council meetings and making the recordings easily available on TV and online. O'Connor, who is running for re-election to the seat he has held since 1985, and Lawrence, who is seeking the at-large spot instead of running again to represent Ward 4, both said recording the meetings would improve government transparency. "There's really no reason why we can't" record city council meetings, said O'Connor, a 68-year-old attorney.
