Evelyn you may want to contact Clr.Sponga
in Newmarket to confirm or deny because word on the street is the Jazz festival
is off there.Too many demands perhaps?
It was around January 1st 2013 The Banner printed the story about Newmarket being the new home of erstwhile Aurora Jazz Festival
Eh! Heh! Look what Aurora's Council has done now.
I thought the timing was odd. Newmarket Town Hall is closed from Christmas Eve. How would anything have been agreed to result in a proclamation on January 1st?
Location was also unlikely. How would a five foot chain link fence and security services for the purpose of charging admission, fit around the Newmarket Farmers' Market?
Why would The Banner publish such an unlikely story?
What could be their purpose?
Councillor Ballard appears to be putting a lot of effort into personally discrediting an individual connected with the Lucid Productions proposal to the Town of Aurora.
The Town is committing no resources.
No matter the success or otherwise of the project, the town stands to lose nothing.
Why would Councillor Ballard put so much into his effort?
How does that reflect higher expectations from behaviour
of a Councillor. expounded by the Councillor in his argument in favour of a Code of Conduct complete with penaltie and punishment?
What could be his purpose?
At Thursday's public meeting in the old library to discuss potential for the building , Councillor Ballard informed a participant that " a woman" on Council has recommended sale of the property for private development.
No record exists of such a proposal.
Why would Councillor Ballard say such a thing?
Wherefore art the higher standard of conduct?
What could be his purpose ?
Last Tuesday Council were informed of a Code of Conduct complaint filed immediately prior to Council's deliberation on the Code that evening
On Wednesday, I learned from someone, who heard from someone else who was informed by the complainant , the complaint was against myself.
The complainant claimed the complaint would go away if I would acknowledge I was wrong about whatever it was she was complaining about. . .
On Saturday, I heard through the same route, the complaint has been withdrawn; through e-mail with formal withdrawal to follow on Monday morning.
The Toronto Star had somehow learned of the complaint.
The complainant had been contacted, following which the complaint was withdrawn.
In the meantime, I still have no idea of the complaint, the complainant was complaining about that would have disappeared had I only admitted to being wrong. .
Sole communication between myself and the complainant in recent years was when the complainant appeared twice recently at Council-in-Committee , and at Council , made presentations in formats designed by herself, which were received by Council on both occasions without comment from any member of Council.
Under the circumstances,what complaint could be filed by a complainant?
What could be the purpose?
No doubt, in the fullness of time and further activities along the same lines, a clearer picture will emerge.
Being fervently in support of a Code of Righteous Conduct ,no doubt Councillor Saintly Ballard will eventually reveal the purpose in all of this......or not .
