Coffee with the Mayor

Good Afternoon Aurora,

As many of you know, in past years I have visited residents ‘door to door’ on spring/summer weekends to hear directly about the issues and concerns that are important to you. I believe listening is not only something that should happen during election time and feel these informal meetings are essential to staying connected with people in our community.

Unfortunately, due to COVID 19, this year I am unable to continue this tradition. However, I refuse to let COVID 19 stop us from connecting and that is why I will be arranging ‘virtual coffees’ each weekend to listen, learn and answer questions. Each session will have a maximum of 10 people for up to one hour so we can have a meaningful discussion.

I will also meet with residents individually if that is preferred. (30mins) Please let me know in your email if you would prefer one on one chat or a group coffee.

If you are interested in joining me, please send a message to – Sessions will be booked on a first come, first serve basis.

If you have a particular topic of interest, let me know and, if practical, I will group people with similar interests together. Then watch for a Zoom meeting invitation to join me on a future Saturday morning, for “Virtual Coffee with Tom #GettingThingsDone #StayInformed #GetEngaged
