Alderman Kristina "Tina" Bohman was first appointed to the City Council in 2013 by Mayor Tom Weisner following the resignation of Abby Schuler. Tina's passion for serving her Ward 1 residents led her to run for a full term, and she was elected in April of 2015.
Prior to serving on the City Council, Tina was active in residential flooding issues, neighborhood crime prevention and Ward Committees. Tina was instrumental in crafting ward budgets, fostering neighborhood involvement and prioritizing local improvements.
As an active community member, Tina worked closely with the Aurora Police Department and was asked to attend the first Citizen Police Academy class. It was the first of its kind in the area and quickly became, and remains, a model for many Illinois cities. Following her experience with the Citizen Police Academy, Tina participated in the creation of the Citizen Police Academy Alumni, which focuses on keeping Academy participants involved through continuing education, volunteerism and fundraising. The group recently celebrated its 20th Anniversary.
Tina also served on both the Fox Valley Park District and the Fox Valley Foundation Board.
A lifelong resident of Aurora, Tina lives with her husband Dave on Aurora's northeast side; they are the proud grandparents of five grandchildren. She attended West Aurora High School and graduated from Waubonsee Community College.
Tina currently serves on the Building, Grounds and Infrastructure Committee
