For Christmas I received the complete season of Aurora Town Council on DVD.If anyone is interested in getting a copy they can try Amazon here: What is abundantly transparent when watching any council meeting is the lack of common decency by our Mayor, Councilor MacHeckron and the rest of the G.O.S. They are all pompous, arrogant and condescending. I sure hope that they proceed with resurrecting an Integrity commissioner as a code of conduct complaint needs to be leveled on every one in the G.O.S. I think my favorite quote, from my favorite episode would be the April 14th 2009 meeting @ 2:17:59 when Phyllis launched into some self-righteous, self congratulatory diatribe: "We have done a splendid job of doing the towns business, however as with any debate it can get personalized as we see wether its a matter of freedom of speech at this table or freedom of writing expression elsewhere.
Some members of this council have been criticized many many times…..give some consideration to how things are written and supported elsewhere outside these council chambers." She goes on to state:
"It isn'at all just what happens in front of the camera. Things happen outside these chambers, that happen also." Wow, what profound words madame mayor. They sure do. To borrow a review from Ian Birch that he gave to the movie Xanadu, I have to say that watching a council meeting from 2009 is "an experience so vacuous it's almost frightening". Can't wait to explore the DVD extras.
