We would like to introduce a new post series on our Town Politics focus page – highlights from Aurora Council Meetings ‘Reporting From Town Hill‘. The topic will have a cartoon and will highlight general ideas covered in Council Meetings.
But first, let us share this.
All I wanted to do was laugh. This bit of humour lead me to think of the reality of the situation; at two and a half years of age he recognized the concepts of hard work, authority, and unfairness. One day he will better understand why I was telling him what to do.
Our community FOCUS site without humour is not a complete site. We decided to add a laughable element to spice up living in the Town of Aurora. It is a fact that some may appreciate the humour here more than others. We hope that a bit of humour will provoke some thought or even help some of us to better understand reality. We can always use more public engagement and support in Aurora and sometimes we have to try different venues, in this case a bit of humour via cartoons and comics for you to decipher.
To begin the process, we have asked Jessica Georgiou from Aurora, an art student, to illustrate the faces of the Town Council and Mayor. We have assembled our first illustration of the Aurora Council Meetings, ‘Reporting from Town Hill’, a slightly different format from other reporting media.
Town politics are intriguing to some and discouraging to others but definitely affect all of our daily lives. Some of us rely on the TV news stations, newspapers or Internet to report on the latest and greatest. Well, we have decided to do the same here at the community FOCUS site – to give you some sort of regular highlight of the Aurora Council Meetings from our one and only Town Hill in Aurora.
Why call it Town Hill, you may ask? Well our Town Hall is almost on a Hill – the third floor of the building has a great lookout facing west.
And to test your knowledge of Aurora, did you know that our Town Hall where the Aurora Council meetings are held used to have an address on John West Way, that was then changed to Municipal Drive, and then changed back again to John West Way. How much do you think it cost taxpayers to make such changes? Think about it.
Share your story. Write us.
