Season’s Greetings

Posted by auroracitizen on December 22, 2010

During the Holiday Season more than ever our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made this last year successful.

At this time, on behalf of the Aurora Citizen we wish to extend our thanks to all readers and participants for your genuine desire to create a better future for Aurora and contribute to creating that future as a communityeach in our own unique way.

This last year has been an interesting one. Our community sent a clear message to community leaders that we demand respect of ourselves and each other.

We have great expectations for our leaders.

We do not expect perfection — but we do expect courtesy and collaboration. We expect them to listen with an open mind and make decisions they feel are aligned with their principles — and be prepared to explain their reasons.

We do not expect they will always agree with each other — or with all citizens — but we do expect them to act with courtesy and respect, even when there is disagreement based on the issues.

As a way of expressing our thanks to you and in keeping with the spirit of the season, the Aurora Citizen will be making a donation to our local Food Bank.

These gifts will help ensure those less fortunate than ourselves share in the goodwill of the season and receive some of the everyday necessities that many take for granted.

Sharing our good fortune with others is a holiday tradition here in Aurora and with your continued support we hope to uphold and participate in that tradition for many years to come.

From all of us at The Aurora Citizen — Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays — however you chose to celebrate this season.

    To the webmeisters:

    Merry Christmas, and I wish you and yours the best during the holiday season. In addition, i hope you win the court case against Morris, and once you do win, make certain that you sue for costs and have her pick up the entire tab.

    god bless.

    Merry Christmas and all the best into 2011 to the Aurora Citizen!

    Thanks to everyone at the AC for providing this amazing online meeting place.

    Also, sincere best wishes and good thoughts to Elizabeth, Richard, Bill, and your families. Hopefully last night’s council decision made this season a little bit brighter for you. I’m certain that early 2011 will bring a much needed end to this ridiculous, baseless lawsuit.

      Matt, get out of my head! You are always saying what I think!

      Oh, well, you know what they say about great minds…..

      Best Wishes for a safe and happy holiday to all!

      Thanks, Matt. I’ve been blessed with a supportive and loving family, fabulous friends, two great co-defendants, and the good fortune to live in Aurora. We don’t just live in a town, we live in a community, and when something goes awry, this community is aware of the problem and acts in positive ways to make things right.

      I believe that Tuesday gave a bit of new meaning to “… and to all a good night.”

      Sorry Melanie! 🙂 Thanks for the “great minds” comment, but I seem to recall the rest of that saying goes “but fools seldom differ” – ha!

      But, whether we’re both fools or not, I wish all the best to you and your family for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – cheers!
