As in off his rocker – and totally unsuited for the job as City of Racine Administrator –
First let me express my appreciation for you providing such great political fodder.
I read with interest your letters concerning citizens addressing the Common Council on March 5th.
Most citizens would think that the city administrator has more important tasks to accomplish than walking the corridors of city hall to gather signatures.
On March 5th, my words to the common council were carefully chosen.
Yours words were not.
Holding government officials accountable is a basic tenet within our democracy.
When dealing with government, accountability does comes before civility.
When there is no accountability, then the lessons of Gene Sharp come into play.
Here is something else you know nothing of ………… HOTGOVERNMENT
When government officials are confronted with accountability, they often claim they are being personally attacked.
Get over it Mr. Palenick, if you are that thin skinned, get out of government and go back to Mommy.
Perhaps if you really listened to what the public said at the common council meetings you would learn of the plights of the citizens you so brazenly ignore. You treat public comments as an inconvenience you must tolerate. You stare mindlessly into your computer screen or shuffle papers around as the public airs their concerns.
So typical of disenfranchised bureaucrats.
Silencing critics is all part of Cory Mason’s secret government.
I quote part of your letter for reference”
“proceeded to publicly and personally attack City Attorney Scott
Letteney, as well as Mayor Cory Mason, and, by position reference Human Resources director Tim Thompkins, with unfounded claims and outrights lies in a manner and using terms explicitly designed to personally disparage and impugn the character and integrity of said employees and officials.”
Tim Thompkins ? Really?
Personally attack ? Really?
Why are you trying to interject Mr. Thompkins into the fray?
No inference or mention of him at all during the open public comments on March 5th.
Personally attacked Scott Letteney ? Really ? Didn’t even mention his name, but there is foundation for the criticism, Mayor – Coryuption ? Yes, I did say mayor and coryuption, again, there is foundation for the criticism.
You seem to have a problem with criticism, so this response should really give you something to whine about.
There are medications for people that are delusional or hear voices, perhaps this is the wake up call you need to deal with your issues .
Your response is laughable at best and pathetic being a more appropriate term
As a government employee, you should be aware that criticism comes with the turf.
Please reference your childish tirade to the common council and provide specific examples where I lied, stretched the truth or provided misinformation. I am a detail type of individual and I can back my smack, so I am very interested in listening how you will back your frivolous statements and claims.
It appears you have taken some bad advice and miscues from the master scofflaw Scott Letteney.
Perhaps Scotty helped you write the letters?
I will gladly provide you a forum on Racinecountycorruption.blogsot.com for you to make your case or I will return to the same venue where you can present your case in front of the common council..
It is disappointing to see that the city of Racine administrator is blinded by the darkness of unaccountably, ineptness and fraud. It appears your time spent working with Mason and Letteney to undermine and subvert the authority of the common council has apparently taken a detrimental toll upon your reasoning and understanding of the checks and balances within government.
So tell me Mr. Palenick, acting as the city administrator and a trusted member of the mayor’s inner circle, how did keeping the police survey a secret serve the interest of the community?
Was Mason embarrassed by the report? Or perhaps disappointed?
According to the Racine Journal Times, Mayor Mason now claims the study will cost approximately $150,000 dollars for the 24 page report, up from the previous announced $118,000.
The report cost $6,000 dollars a page??!!! Does spending that amount of money sound reasonable to you ? Do you believe the money was wisely spent ?
In my opinion, another example of Mayor Mason going head hunting, finding nothing while squandering tax dollars in his personal quest to exert his personal control over the city of Racine Police Department.
Did you even realize that Mayor Mason undermined and subverted common council authority when he commissioned the secret police study “by the hour”? I think not.
If your pouty letters are any indication as to how you task your job as city administrator, then I understand why the city continues to decline under the “professional management team employed by the City of Racine”.
The darkness of Coryuption is a plague within city government:
Secret surveys, secret meetings, secret government, secret courts,
squandering of public funds, lack of accountability, government bloat, doubling park fees…… all documented.
The winds of change are in the air and the rats are scurrying for cover.
End the plague.
Let the sunshine of honest, open and transparent – HOT government into the city of Racine
Support Sandy Weidner for Mayor.
One more item Mr. Palenick,
Let’s play where is Waldo Tim Thompkins in the below common council address, shall we? dudo dudo dudo
Supporters of HOT Government speaking on the complaint of Harry Wait asking for the removal of city attorney Scott Letteney. The council referred it to the ethic committee.3-5-201
Common council address: “SECRECY” 3-05-2019
I wish to speak tonight about the alarming issue within the city of Racine …………… SECRECY.
Secrecy in public government is a cancer, it is anti-democratic, impedes open debate and discussion of public issues, infringes upon our rights to know what our government is doing, and how and where public resources are being used or abused.
City officials undermined and subverted common council authority when city officials commissioned by the hour a $118,000 dollar SECRET police study, violating city ordinances 46.39 and its subsections
A previous $6,000 dollar study commissioned by the police union alleged Underpaid officers, inconsistent supervision, low morale, sexism, racism, the list goes on and on.
As a frequent critic of law enforcement, I can attest that the $6,000 dollar study failed to present a very important fact about the Racine police department….. that is the Racine police department is open to public scrutiny, embraces its critics with open and meaningful dialogue, and addresses citizens concerns with transparency, something the rest of Racine Government could take some lessons from.
It is public money that paid for the SECRET $118,000 police study and there is no transparency by withholding the police study from the public.
The city further engaged in SECRET court. Squandering public funds by attacking a sitting alderman who has a stellar record as a public servant. The city filed frivolous pleadings in an effort to silence the truth. These SECRET court filings by the city of Racine are of national embarrassment,………. showcasing a secret court case that will live in infamy.
In your short 15 month stint as mayor, a dark shroud of SECRECY has overtaken the City , it is the political phenomenon called Coryuption.
SECRET surveys, SECRET meetings SECRET government & SECRET courts.
I ask the city council to forward my complaint to the ethics committee for action. Thank you !
