"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

Bulletin Update

Email requests are still coming in. Four more this morning requesting a by-election. None for appointment. One saying council members are all Timmy supporters and "your boy will be under scrutiny in the next election". I think that could be support for a by-election.

Councillor Gaertner has been consistent during the last term and this. She believes Council must listen to the people, despite all else and do what "they " want. I believe she is sincere and will hold to her principles. If that happens and her cohorts dont have the opportunity to persuade her differently, then we will have a by-election.

Today is the day.

other than to email and to come to the meeting tonight how do we make council see that a byelection is what the people want?

Cousillor Gartner is a negative at times so I hope she follows her own rule about what the people want

You really believe Gaertner will vote against Phyllis? History and past performances say you are wrong!

"Today is the day."

Hah! The few councillors who had the guts to do what is right, rather than what the bullies wanted, are to be commended. Face it, the Old Guard lost the last election. Aurora is a different place today than 20 years ago. Newcomers are taking their rightful place. If Tim Jones wants to win the federal election, he had better rein in his "boy", Nigel Kean, and make peace with the Mayor and her grassroots supporters. It must irritate you, Ms. Buck, that you are unimportant on Council -- and growing more irrelevant every day. As for the Worst Council in History Award? Those of us who have lived here their entire lives know that award goes to your term as Mayor.
