Casildo “Casey” Cuevas – Running for 5th Ward Alderman
My Goals as Alderman:
- Make sure the city is being Fiscally Responsible in their expenditures and using renewable (Solar & Hydropower from the river)
- Advocate for a Sports Venue/Convention Center in Aurora
- Advocate for a Multicultural Center
- Safety and wellness checks for seniors and an advisory committee for the elderly.
- There are areas in Aurora’s 5th Ward with no sidewalks, street lights nor storm sewer lines for the rain, these needs to be addressed.
- Make sure we are getting the best of our downtown & entrance corridors. There are too many empty buildings in the west side. We need to attract more businesses and jobs. Connect with different Chambers of commerce from Aurora and surrounding areas to bring in new businesses while also concentrating on Business retention.
- Advocate passing a welcoming city Ordinance.
- Maintain community-assigned police.
- Attracting west-side businesses for empty buildings.
- Support elected board for Aurora Public Library
Casey is a proud Aurora resident for 45 years, a family man, and local Business owner. Casey and Ana have been married 25 years and raised their two children in Aurora. He is a small business owner, working as an IT and Telecom Technician. In addition to being an elected Precinct Committeeman and serving as a Board Member of the Aurora Hispanic Heritage Advisory Board, he is an active member of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, the League of Women Voters, Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and his church.
A community activist and volunteer, Cuevas has spent the last seven years collecting and distributing care packages to local homeless citizens, and volunteering his time and efforts to national and local causes to raise money for children with disabilities.
As your 5th ward Alderman, before every vote he will be asking:
- “Does this benefit the residents and families of Aurora?”
- “Is it financially sustainable and how will it impact taxpayers and our Environment?”
