"As an educator, a father, and a graduate of Aurora Central High School, Miguel Lovato has my support for the Aurora School Board election. Miguel is a first-generation college graduate himself, the son of an immigrant, he has worked with at-risk youth as a non-profit director, social studies teacher, and founding member of a scholarship foundation. I know that I can count on Miguel to fight for kids in Aurora — my grandkids included."

Senator Rhonda Fields

"As an APS Board Member, and as a dad, I want Miguel serving by my side fighting for kids in Aurora. Miguel brings his experience as a teacher, a nonprofit leader, a scholarship program founder, and a gang violence prevention coordinator. He is also a graduate of Aurora Central, and the first in his family to earn his Bachelor’s degree — he is a role model for countless young people in Aurora. I look forward to his expertise and his sense of urgency on the board, and I hope I can count on you to vote for Miguel."
