Much like George Orwell’s 1984 in which the historical record was either altered or erased I see on our municipal website that all prior copies of the Municipal Newsletter have disappeared, leaving only this month’s on record and available to the public.
Yes, it’s true, previous months in which the Mayor’s Corner came under severe criticism for its blatant self-serving political partisanship are no more. Me thinks, with an election coming up someone thought this to be a prudent course of action…. or did the inspectors or the politicos in Edmonton order this?
I must say September’s Newsletter was a much improved mostly non-partisanship effort with respect to the Mayor’s Corner. Kudos to him for finally getting it right. Although it seems to be his modus operandi in that he has to do everything badly several times before finally doing it right once…. in some cases never does he get it right, but to his credit he does keep on trying.
Anyhow, this month’s Mayor’s Corner sounds to me like a cry for help in begging people to ask him to run again, while at the same time a plan of escape to get out from under by latching onto an excuse as to why he won’t be running again. After the Municipal Inspection Report on Wednesday, will it boil down to flipping a coin: yes I will, no I won’t, run again?
I wonder if others on council will keep us guessing until Nomination Day (one week from today) or will they finally make an announcement of their intention to run or not at tomorrow night’s last council meeting before the election?
Stay tuned folks, the games are about to begin with interesting and exciting times ahead. :-)
I’m thinking the question on everybody’s minds leading up to election day on October 21st will be…. will we as a community soon be writing an exciting new chapter of hope and promise, in uniting our community as one with my “middle-way” agenda, or continuing on with more of the same old, same old, tyrannical revisionist government we have had to endure these last three long years? Or heaven forbid, will we slip back into our old divisive, secular, neanderthal ways again where the ‘good ‘ole boys’ rule for their sole benefit…. at our expense?
Freeing a person from misconceptions, false truths, and lies does not take anything from him; it gives him something important.
