Very productive comment 11:01.... I thought Evelyn would have more class than publishing personal attacks. Gallo's hair colour has nothing to do with his performance and this post should not have seen the light of day.
I guess the original poster is a picture perfect human specimen.
Just another cheap shot from those haters.
I don't think it was from a "hater" . But normally I publish only political shots. When the comments are coming fast and furious, occasionally something personal will slip through.
Sometimes a comment will combine personal with political and that makes the decision more problematic.
Generally speaking few holds are barred in politics. In the years I have been involved , I am probably in the happy circumstance that everything negative that could be said about me already has.
Former Councillor Mac Eachern's letter to the editor is an example of an egregious personal attack. The letter excoriates the Town's Mayor and suggests he does not share the community's standard that abuse of women and children and the elderly is abhorrent.
How much more harm is created by that suggestion than a comment of the town's Number One Citizen, taken completely out-of- context
The idea of Morris and MacEachern lying in wait for any opportunity to abuse the Mayor and using the unhappy plight of abused women and children to suit their purpose is hardly to their credit.
For several decades Yellow Brick House was the only Women's Shelter in York Region. It wouldn't be there if Aurora Council had not stood firm against strong opposition.
Council was firm. Councillor Betty Pedersen and myself took a strong stance in support of the shelter.
It's a forgotten page of history, But that's O.K.. The important thing is, Aurora was the first to do more than pay lip service to an urgent social need. .
We paved the way. For several decades the house on Wellington Street was the only shelter in the entire Region.
Aurora can take pride in being in the forefront. Yellow Brick House has always enjoyed positive support in the community.Many new and improved services have quietly stemmed from the Shelter being there.
More needs to be done. We should never lose sight of the goal
