JBNBlog better step up my game.

Two recent big event announcements (surprises to me) have arrived with words from mayors where the stars might be expected to speak.

On Friday (today), Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley was quoted as saying of Elton John’s Sept. 7 solo concert in its announcement:
“The music of Sir Elton John touches people on a very personal level. The songs that he and Bernie Taupin made famous resonate just as clearly today as they did when they first arrived on the airwaves decades ago. Sarnia and the Royal Bank Center are honoured to have an artist of such worldwide renown sharing his songs with us.”

Earlier in the month, London Mayor Joe Fontana was quoted about the Canadian debut of How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular, which opens its run at the John Labatt Centre on July 4:

“Our award winning John Labatt Centre will make a great first stop on the Canadian leg of the tour. What an amazing and magical show this is and who of us as a child did not wish for our very own dragon. Now the collaborative production of DreamWorks and Global Creations is bringing our imagination to life and enchantment to London, Ontario. I can’t wait to take my grandson. We’re going to love it.”

No complaints from JBNBlog . . . in fact it would be a shame if Mayor Mike and Mayor Joe weren’t on stage with Sir Elton and the dragons respectively. Just saying.

More seriously, a note to self to sharpen up. The mayors and their communications crews are way ahead of you . . . gotta do something about that, eh?
