Voters elect Seeman as Aurora mayor

Aurora voters elected Marlin Seeman to begin a second stint as mayor of the city Tuesday.

Seeman received 1,128 votes (64 percent) according to unofficial results posted at the Hamilton County Courthouse Tuesday night, while former city councilman Phil Hupf received 631 votes.
“I would like to thank the citizens of Aurora for supporting me in the quest to be elected mayor of the City of Aurora,” Seeman said. “It is an honor to serve and lead our community. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities that await the growth of our city.”
Seeman said he went door to door in recent weeks, asking local residents about their concerns and goals for the city.
“Predominately I was told that people think the city is doing a pretty good job,” he said. “They expect leadership and I’m honored to have the opportunity to provide that leadership.”
Hupf was gracious in defeat, saying he was proud of his run for mayor.
“I’m thankful for the support of those who cast a ballot for me,” he said. “I am hopeful that in my loss, my campaign opened a dialogue on several critical issues that need to be solved and that these issues can be addressed in a collaborative and transparent manner. I feel blessed every day to be part of this amazing community and look forward to doing whatever I can do to make Aurora even better in the future.
“I wish the best to our new mayor and stand ready to assist him if called upon to do so,” he continued.
“I also want to extend my appreciation to our outgoing Mayor Dave Long for his public service both as   a mayor and as an educator.”
