With 2 weeks left to go before the election I have done my rounds online checking out the web presences for council and Mayoral candidates in Aurora.
What was shocking to learn was that only 1 mayoral candidate has a secure website; Dawe.
Mrakas, Ballard and Abel do not.
All the beating of chests about leadership and a “better Aurora”, yet these 3 couldn’t couldn’t manage something as simple as a secure website?
It’s one thing to go around chanting about getting things done, it’s quite another to do them right.
It’s certainly not the approach to security I want from Aurora’s next mayor.
Candidates for council fared a little better. Of the 12 that have websites only 3 are not secure: Abas , Gallo & Lajeunesse.
What was even more disappointing is that 4 candidates have no website , 2 of which are councilors seeking re-election : Gaertner, Hoyes, Humfreys & McGrath.
It’s 2018. Not having a website as part of your election campaign is inexcusable, and an immediate write-off for any candidate failing the most basic litmus test.
Not having a secure website is a red flag, and should cause voter to pause and consider how secure that candidate stacks up against the rest.
