It’s not “time for a change”, no it’s time to take out the trash and bury it. Her Worship’s castle will be stormed and she will be overthrown, but the question on everyone’s minds is who is going to take up this charge? As much as I like Nigel as a person I don’t see him as the man for the job. This council has left much damage in its wake. To say it’s a big job is a huge understatement. There’s a slight chance that Nigel’s campaign platform will outline his vision and turn me around, I’m just not waiting with baited breath. Nor will I jump up and down if Tim Jones were to make a resurrection.
Aurora deserves “better”, and like other Aurorans I am awaiting those among us to stand up and announce their candidacy. We need someone that can unite the town, someone who can propose fresh solutions for old problems and leave past grievances out of it. There are amazing people in Aurora. I’m just hoping that the intentions of both Nigel and our mayor been made, doesn’t convey the “same-old, same-old” attitude, or becomes hesitant in again splitting the vote. As much as we need a mayor with integrity we also need councilors with integrity too. I’d suport Nigel in that role. From what I understand Nigel made a fine councilor. We all saw what he did with the Farmers Market, and it looks like councilor Granger has said he is too tired for that role, I’d love to see it back in the hands of anyone who can sign their name without using crayon. Should the right person for Mayor step forward councilor makes much more sense for Mr. Kean to reinsert himself into, although it’s downright laughable if Nigel’s thinks that MPP Frank Klees would give up his post to run for mayor. It is the notice of intent for councilors that I will be watching more closely as we approach this next election. Perhaps if we elected 8 councilors that possessed the integrity and independent thought of Mr. Keane we wouldn’t have to worry about our mayor and her throne. Phyllis could remain in “the chair” but would be a powerless and impotent queen with no sycophantic drones to do her bidding. There’s a proverb that says “Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein.” Yes, Karma’s a beautiful thing, and elections are where , like a jeweled crown, it shines the brightest.
