AURORA, Ill. - March 28, 2017 - PRLog -- A new alderman will be elected April 4th for Aurora's 10th Ward. This year, registered voters are headed to the polls with a familiar, experienced and celebrated option.  Judd Lofchie, now an Aurora resident for several decades, is both a lawyer and business owner, bringing his storied resume of Taking Action to the 10th Ward.

Lynne Johnson, the current alderman, is not seeking reelection.  Citizens are now  seeking a new leader who can deliver results beginning on the first day of office.  The three candidates seeking to replace her seat are Keith Bradley, Robert (Bob) Paolicchi, and Judd Lofchie.

Lofchie, 59, a resident of the ward for more than 25 years, is an attorney, real estate broker and developer.  With deep roots in the community, Lofchie has carried a deep involvement in Aurora issues for many years. This bodes well for Aurora's 10th Ward.  His resume of social citizenship has demonstrated to his supporters that the office is not about wealth, popularity or power.  Running for this office provides Lofchie with yet another opportunity to make large-scale impact, this time, for Aurora.

As founder of Chicago-centric StreetWise Magazine (, a workforce development agency designed to help the homeless and those at risk of homelessness out of the crisis of poverty, Lofchie has carried a lifelong torch of giving to his community, friends and neighbors.  In 1992, Chicago recognized Judd Lofchie as Citizen of the Year (and Month 08/92) and since, he has continued in his drumbeat of action. Recently, Lofchie founded the Aurora Networking Group, with an active, recurring schedule boasting high attendance and high reviews from nearly 1000 members; reviews that carry comments of Judd's inherent need to connect and improve people and lives.

Not taking NO for an answer, Lofchie wants to work to reduce red tape for business – igniting new revenue from taxes and new services and offerings for the community. As a developer, he carries a transparent track record of bringing business into Aurora, and something he plans to continue with new vigor.  His resume has brought countless businesses to the area, a trend Lofchie feels must and will continue in the 10th Ward to make a positive impact on resident taxes.

Bradley, 66, is a retired from sales.  A four-year area resident, he says Aurora needs to develop a plan for the Fox Valley Mall area that recognizes the decline of "bricks and mortar" businesses.

Paolicchi, a 70-year-old retired school administrator, has a focus on bringing development to the part of town served by East Aurora Unit District 131- largely to help improve the tax base.  He too moved to the area only four years ago.

Early voting is taking place now, with the anticipated final election day on Tuesday, April 4th.
