Accolades and Ass-hats – July 21st 2010

Asshat

Ass-hat

To the mayor for chairing a 5 hour meeting, and then a 3/4 hour closed door session, taking a meeting that started at 7PM and was supposed to be completed by 10:30 PM to 12:45 in the morning.

Not only is the Mayor’s HR experience suspect, I now want to know what experience she has chairing or leading anything.

It doesn’t matter if the council meetings are televised or not, who would want to watch this?

Accolades

Accolade

To Richard Johnson who summed up my sentiment of watching the same council meeting in his recent, albeit a little long letter to the Auroran.

Asshat

Ass-hat

To Sher St. Kitts for jumping up and down and waiving her jazz hands all over town trying to paint the Farmers Market in bad light and saying that she was having communication issues when she didn’t even bother to approach the chair or committee.

This is one melodramatic pity-whore that our Town would flourish without.

Accolades

Accolade

To Councilors Bob McRoberts and Alison Collins-Mrackas for stepping away from the table when the “wholly political” issue of the Integrity Commissioner’s report was steamrolled onto the agenda after several objections.

Asshat

Ass-hat

To Guy “Puppet” Poppe, for his comments on page 4 of the July 13th edition of the Auroran.

He accuses Mr. Dawe and Councillor Buck of being “unacquainted with the history of the Westhill project.”

The sheer arrogance of that statement, and the belief that the Toronto Star article was anything but a photo-op shreds any credibility Mr. Puppet may have hoped to project.

And then on top of it all Mr. Puppet wonders why he doesn’t get any responses from mayoral candidate Mr. Dawe.  Given these remarks and the numerous postings over on the Aurora Citizen which have shared no favor with any of the participants isn’t the answer obvious?

Is he taking notes from Heidi Stokelin?

I’m wondering if he would be even willing to swap his tinfoil hat for this more deserving one.

Accolades

Accolade

To Mark Holmes suggestions in the July 13th edition of the Auroran:

  1. install a right hand turn lane from southbound Yonge to westbound Wellington, as per the Region of York recommendation.
  2. stop the downtown Promenade
  3. demolish Petch House

All items with merit that I would endorse.

Asshat

Ass-hat

To Janelle Warren, Petter Sibbald Brown & Gary Reany, none of which live in Aurora but whose letters ended up on the July 13th edition of the Auroran singing praises to Aurora’s environmental martyr Mayor Morris.

All responses looked like typical environmental knee-jerk reaction to front page news coverage, which is no doubt what the Mayor was after, and why she forwarded them to the Auroran.

Perhaps if these 3 people bothered to acquaint themselves with the history of the Westhill project without blindly following this P.R. crap they wouldn’t have to adorn themselves with the very fitting headgear I have picked out for them.

Accolades

Accolade

To Phyllis Mahon for her letter in Thursday July 15th’s Banner.

She has good reason to wonder why a massive clean-up is being planned to precede a massive restructuring and revitalization, and who is being awarded the contracts.

I want to know the same.

Power washing sidewalks makes no sense.  Painting lines on the roads already falls under the town’s responsibility, it is not a “clean-up” initiative.

This “quick win” looks to be a “quick loss” of $130,000.
