Mayor Elect Says No Means No

On November 17, 2010 @8:29 pm in the post Recount Results, “Anonymous” stated;
“Humfryes, Ballard, Gaertner, and Gallo should be a good check on Dawe, to make sure he doesn’t sell out the town to developers, and gut the new official plan.
I’m looking forward to seeing Dawes financial report to see how much developer backing he has.”
I was originally going to simply respond with a comment, but then I decided to submit a stand-alone post and see if we can’t have some fun with it.
First, to reiterate, I stated during the campaign, that I would not accept donations from developers. I said this a number of times and I was quoted (accurately) in the paper. So, that fact is very much public, and I fully expect it will be verified with my audited returns.
As I used to have to say to my kids, what part of NO do you not understand.
Should the audit show that I did unknowingly receive a donation from a developer, then I will
- return that donation, and;
- personally donate an equal amount to the Aurora Food Pantry.
HOWEVER, should the audit show that I indeed DID NOT receive donations from developers then I ask Anonymous to make a donation to the Aurora Food pantry – say $100.00.
What say you, Anonymous? Are you up for this challenge? Are you ready to make a positive difference to life in Aurora?
Let me know.
