Yesterday I lauded Councillor Philip Brown for his call for the banning of cosmetic pesticides in Charlottetown. I also mentioned that he was the only Councillor to publish his email address on the City of Charlottetown’s website.
Within the hour, I had a note from Bruce Garrity, another City Councillor, noting that he had just had the City publish his email address. I emailed him back and asked for his take on the banning of cosmetic pesticides. Last night Bruce responded.
What’s more, when Bruce’s email address was added to the list [PDF file], so were the email addresses of the Mayor and all Councillors but Clifford Lee, Daniel Redmond and Mitch Tweel.
This isn’t disarming Iraq. But all politics, they say, is local.
There are 10 wards in Charlottetown. There are now two councillors (at least) on the record supporting this ban. I’ll email the rest, and ask them for their positions. Watch this space.
I see two bogus domains in the list of email addresses: aura.com (assume this to be auracom.com, unless this councillor is also employed by Aura Technology Corp in Scarsdale, NY), and island.telecom.com (should be islandtelecom.com).
Yes, I sent an email to Bruce suggesting that he have City Hall staff check the list.
Now, to get these politicians blogging. That would be a leap!
email@example.com is checked by city clerks, not the mayor.
On several occasions I have emailed the mayor only to get a reply from one of MacDonald’s clerks. Very disappointing.
By the way what is all this virtual Charlottetown stuff(shit) — the most pathetic set of web pages I have seen for a long time. How much money did they get?
er, I believe you are looking at $9 million worth of world class technology there, Rob. And several years of work by well-known world class players. Should make you proud to be a taxpayer.
Makes me proud as a shining new taxpayer that is actually paying for it soon…
