Who is Aren Rodriguez? That is a great question. While we all can spend a lifetime trying to figure that specific question out about ourselves, Aren would prefer to work in the community and define himself by his fellow people/fellow residents. Here are a few other informational items concerning Aren.
Aren is a native of Longmont. He was schooled in the Saint Vrain Valley School District, and attended Burlington Elementary, Sunset Middle School, and Niwot High School.

Aren would love to be able to represent all of the great people of Longmont. He is not interested in advancing the goals of the 1%, the developers, the multi-millionaires, and the like. They have enough voice in the process. It is the everyday, working-class people that Aren is most concerned with representing.
