"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

A rejected comment

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "The more things change, the more they remain the ...":

I think I might have gotten an idea from the post that if, & when, council ever gets to New Business, there could be a slight chance that the refurbishment of the Youth Centre might be re-cosidered. But, only if someone switches horses. Our resident switcher, for the most part, has been the Mayor. So. it seems highly unlikely although we can hope. His switches generally cost the town money.
Have a nice day.


Comments mean a lot to me. They make what I do here worth while. 

Now and again a comment gets rejected by accident. This one was. So I've had to copy it rather than 
publish it in the comments section.

It's not a focus on criticism of the Mayor although that's probably how it seems. 

I've told the Mayor before  in a meeting; I think his problem is  that he's  accustomed to  functioning in private business and  fibds it hard to get used to how the public's business must be conducted. 

It's not at all about Aurora having  changed into a major metropolis ithou my being aware. 

It's about the difficulty the Mayor has in learning how to function in a more restrictive and  publicly accountable environment. 

I also think that's why  he is more comfortable at the  Region. 

They function pretty much out of  the public eye. 

Remember the half million dollars  donation to the  Red Cross  for Tsunamai  Relief 
 approved by the Finance Committee a few years ago.  The Chairman wrote  the cheque and sent it off before anybody knew  a thing about it.
