I have received a copy of an August 31 memo Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner sent to aldermen. Click to enlarge:
At the August 28 Aurora City Council meeting, the mayor promised an open, thorough, independent investigation of Planned Parenthood and its false front operator, Gemini Office Development.
This means the mayor has reneged on at least that portion of his word for an investigation with no timeline, requiring in an August 31 memo to aldermen that it be completed by September 12 - when the investigator has not even been chosen yet!
Here is a video of the mayor's August 28 promise otherwise....
In a previous display of smarminess, the mayor originally appointed an investigator, attorney Richard Martens, who had ties to the law firm representing the very Aurora Planning and Development Committee to be investigated. Incredible.
See below for Eric Scheidler's urgent request for Aurora pro-life residents to call the mayor and aldermen. Talking points and contact information are provided.
Addendum, 10:11a: As first commenter jasper pointed out as did the mayor in his memo, the reason September 12 is important is because it's the day before the next City Council meeting, the last before Planned Parenthood temporary occupany permit expires on September 17. The mayor apparently wants no lag time before issuing a permanent occupany permit for PP's planned opening day, September 18.
Talking points to mayor and aldermen who have not expressed concern about Martens and timeline deadline:
Talking points to the four aldermen who have objected to Martens and investigation deadline in writing to the mayor:
Have not objected to Martens and investigation deadline:
Thomas J. Weisner
John S. "Whitey" Peters
Michael B. Saville
Have objected to Martens and investigation deadline:
Richard C. Irvin
This is a very sneaky move by the mayor because the occupancy permit for the death-mill runs out Sept 17th.Posted by: jasper at September 4, 2007 10:09 AM
I guess we know who has him in their back pocket.
