She's part of a six candidate field trying to convince the voters of Denver's neighboring city they are the best candidate to garner their votes on November 3.
They are vying to be the at-large member of City Council for the suburban city of 297,835 that lies just east of Denver. Pam's a US Air Force veteran who currently serves as a commissioner for the City of Aurora Veterans Affairs Commission, but wants to do more for the city of Aurora.
Bennett stated on her campaign website:
I am running for Aurora City Council because I want to help Aurora achieve its full potential as a world class city. I am a veteran and a Commissioner on the City of Aurora Veterans Affairs Commission. I have worked in businesses large and small. I volunteer in our community to help others.
I have a diverse background and can bring many resources to the challenges ahead. I will use the strength and experience that I have gained to help the City of Aurora address its variety of challenges during the next four years.
Aurora is emerging as a major U.S. city and a city with a great future. Our city needs a leader ready to work hard for that future. We find ourselves at a time where we must find the path to economic growth and quality of life. Our working men and women and our neighbors need the economic security of a strong working city. Bringing jobs to Aurora is important for our future.
Aurora needs a leader during these difficult economic times; a leader working to bring jobs for our working men and women. Aurora has the start of our future as a healthcare city with medical care and research at Fitzsimmons and the world class healthcare facilities throughout our great city. This is an opportunity few cities ever have. These jobs and jobs created by new businesses will be the new Aurora.
If she wins on November 3, Pam would become the first open transgender politician elected in the state of Colorado, and nationally the first one elected to the city council of a municipality with a population of over 250,000.
Good luck, Pam on election day, and may you have better results than you did in 2007.
