2010 Mayors Message

Posted by auroracitizen on January 4, 2010

Mayor Phillis Morris delivered her Mayors Message through Rogers Cable and is available on-demand.

Of special note is her assertion that “no decision” was made by the Integrity Commissioner (full comments from 7:00 – 9:45). Her position is that  Mr Nitkin did not render a decision.

Our position is that he did render a decision — and that it was that the complaint was ill-formed and political in nature. He suggested that if they wanted to re-submit a new complaint, that was fine, but a decision was made on the complaint as submitted.

The Mayor also deftly avoided answering the question (12:00 – 12:17) on whether she will run again in 2011.

When asked about the accomplishments this year/term, she seemed very long on “planning” and very short on actual accomplishments. If she does plan to run again, she will need to manage her spin better than that or her opponents will hold her feet to the fire about what she actually accomplished that made Aurora a better place than when she took the reins of power.

We have a great community — because of the people who live here. Just think how much better it could be if staff were excited about coming to work each day because of the positive work culture vs the current culture of fear.

Here’s our first new years prediction. If you think the exodus of staff was bad after the last election — just think what it will be like if Morris and her crew returns in November. All those staff hoping and waiting for a change of the guard will lose hope and move on before staying for another 4 years.

    She’s just as phoney as the ficus over her right shoulder.

    Remember folks, our illustrious mayor is a queen of the spin doctors. Don’t let her away with it!
    Nov. 2010 can’t come soon enough

      This mayor has lost all credibility–nobody believes a word she says no matter how much sugar she sprinkles on it.
