Town of Aurora Council Meeting – The Only Show I Watch

-

Town of Aurora Council Meeting at the Town Hall is the only show I watch so far. Not to mention that I do watch it live. What can I say; I just haven’t found time yet to watch TV shows regularly. I don’t want to compare our Town of Aurora council meetings to a soap opera, perhaps there is another name, but they are in a sense soap opera style meetings.

“It’s time for the candidates to be influential leaders and inspire to create more leaders.”

I have an option to watch the Town of Aurora council meeting on the local channel, but I choose not to. It isn’t the same. Watching live I get to see what I want to see and not what the camera points at. I find these meetings more appealing when live. I can see audience expressions, council and mayor reactions. I’m able to converse with others and once in a while I get to meet a new face. Sometimes there is yelling, sometimes laughs and occasionally a music.

Town of Aurora Council meetings are the source of driving change and at council tough decisions are made. Tax payers pay taxes and Council decides how to spend our taxes; thus my interest in municipal government.

“And it is time for our community to realize that knowing your mayor and Councillor does matter.”

Another great event is happening later in the year – the Aurora Municipal Elections 2014. The list of candidates is growing and I think watching council meetings is a great place to start. I am not going to vote blindly anymore. I know I am just casting one vote for each candidate but I am going to make it a quality vote this time regardless of the outcome.

I must say I do enjoy the democratic system. Not always though is my opinion in line with others but at least I have one and now since I am following municipal politics my opinion is more likely an educated one.

I continue to observe lack of public participation in politics though. Perhaps politicians should be more involved and try to engage the public in politics by knocking on the community doors. It’s time for the candidates to be influential leaders and inspire to create more leaders. And it is time for our community to realize that knowing your mayor and Councillor does matter.
