Voters won’t be swayed by cartoon over ward system

May 21, 2014   ·   0 Comments

I cannot understand how anyone, other than Mr. Pullano, could misconstrue Scott Johnston’s cartoon regarding the ward system as a “Paid political message wishing to tighten their control on Aurorans.”
I thought Scott’s cartoon captured, as his cartoons usually do, the heart of an issue in a humourous and succinct manner.
Mr. Pullano also states that the cartoon “offends the intelligence of Aurorans.” It certainly did not insult my intelligence. Quite the contrary.
To me, implementing a ward system could be nothing but detrimental to Aurora.
It’s no wonder us anti-ward wolves in sheep’s clothing are being misled up the garden path not to mention being led down the garden path.
What with all that wool over our eyes we can hardly see the wood for the trees on our way to our fear mongering meetings, but you can’t fool people some of the time, or is that all the time or does a stitch in time keep the apple or the doctor away…goodness I think the sky is falling.
Sorry for rambling, but Mr. Pullano’s letter has subliminally affected my reason.
I digress. Back to the topic at hand.
To divide a geographically small political entity, such as Aurora is, into even smaller geopolitical, parochial wardoms seems, at best, ill advised. Apart from affecting the unity of Aurora, a ward system would be more costly and would result in less representation for the individual citizen.
Finally, to put Mr. Pullano’s mind at ease, although I can’t speak for my fellow Aurorans, I feel most of us will make our decision on the question of a ward system based on its merits or lack of same and will not be swayed by a cartoon.
