Mayor – and Auroran – are doing what is expected of them: reader

(Re: Election season must be here, says reader. July 2, 2014)

In the July 2 edition of The Auroran, Nathalie Schacher-Deviller implies that The Auroran is somehow “stacking the deck” in favour of the current Mayor.
Presumably, this is at the expense of Councillor Gallo, the only other declared candidate for the office of Mayor.
In fact, The Auroran is simply reporting on what is, and has been happening since Geoff Dawe took office in December of 2010. This includes his attendance at literally hundreds of events – those same events that Ms. Schacher-Deviller points out in her letter. The list should also include the numerous fundraisers as well.
Attending these events is a major part of the function of an elected official – Mayor and Councillors.
The real question here is why are there no – well, hardly any – pictures of Councillor Gallo in The Auroran? Canada Day? No. Santa Under the Stars? Any of the four 150th celebration events? No.
I suggest Ms. Schacher-Deviller go back and review previous copies of The Auroran. She will see that the Mayor is doing what is expected in his role, and that The Auroran is doing what is expected in its role. She will also be able to pick out the Councillors who are and have been actively engaged since the start of this term.
