Code of Ethics?

Posted by auroracitizen on November 3, 2008

So do tell — under what part of the much vaunted Code of Ethics is it covered that when the public show concern about an action of Council that you just wait until the issue dies down and do what you want anyway?

This exactly what happened with the appointment of Ken Whitehurst to the position of interim Director — a mere 2 months after the issue was front page news in the local paper and reported in this blog. I guess they hoped everyone would forget about the issue and they would slide it by without anyone noticing. Thanks to Councillor Buck for bringing it to our attention at a recent Council meeting.

We won’t “rehash” this item because we know how much this offends the supporters of the Mayor. It just gets in the way of doing what they want without people being aware of their behaviour.

Well we thought it was important to bring it to people’s attention.

Judge for yourself — agree or disagree — then talk to your neighbours. But make sure you are aware of what your elected representatives are doing without telling you. So much for transparency!

    Whitehurst was on the LSAC when the poop hit the fan about the bulkheads, according to the minutes on the town site. I wonder if that means anything.

    I don’t understand for the life of me why the mayor can’t see that this decision smells fishy. The person is irrelevant, but the way the whole thing was handled was really poor decision making on the part of the mayor and council.

    The mayor and her cohorts are banking that we’ll forget a lot of things before the next election.
    Keeping rehashing and I hope this blog owner does a report card closer to the next election.
