WEDC Got Something Right! Racine County is Top Rated for Politicians Tricking Residents and Treating Themselves to the Spoils!

From: https://inwisconsin.com/rankings/

As in Racine County Politicians at all levels Tricking Residents to pay more property taxes, fees, fines, debt service, and Corporate welfare, while those same Politicians Treat themselves to outrageous pay increases, increased tax-free fringes, lavish retirements, long paid vacations, short work weeks, and double-dipping! Often violating Local Ordinances, State Statutes and Human Decency – but NO FEAR! As they won’t be held to account! Both the Republican County Sheriff and Republican County DA are “Both Eyes Blind to Government Crime”!

 

Truth be told – your home is the Politicians personal ATM – and the Politicians work for the Banksters!

From A Better Mount Pleasant:

Just another day with overpaid and lazy MTP Officials buying time and lying to the Public about the nature of the ever changing Foxconn Contract; “The contract with Mount Pleasant says exactly the same thing – even though Project Manager Claude Lois lied to residents on Monday in the public information meeting by saying the contract says 10.5 OR 6.5. It doesn’t. We pay him $250K a year to lie to us and misrepresent the facts”.

 

MTP Residents – Enjoy the Foxscam! *NEW* and *IMPROVED* Tax Rates and Hikes are in the Dave DeGroot shiny new Sewer Pipeline aided and abetted by his fellow covert Foxconn Employees, soon to be heading your way! Cui Bono?

Pretty soon those shiny new sewer lines will be carrying the contaminated waste water from Mount Pleasant back to City of Racine to be dumped back into Lake Michigan! MTP Village President David DeGroot, and his Minions (acting as MTP Trustees), BFF Racine Mayor Cory Mason, Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave, and Failed College Graduate Former Guv Scott Walker, have been Foxconned and sold out Residents to the Banksters, Land Speculators, Lawyers and Corporate Interests.

 

As sure as Unicorns shit *SKITTLES*, once the Gen 10.5 Foxconn manufacturing complex, as stipulated in the contract between State of WI and Foxconn, is operating, property taxes in Racine County will drop to near *ZERO*, or be like Alaska, and Residents will enjoy a Foxconn Tax Dividend! And everybody will live happily ever after.*

* Results may vary….

One Neubauer Gone! One To Go! While Ratcine is a Lost Cause~!

Hagedorn declares victory with thin margin in Supreme Court race

Wisconsin Appeals Court Judge Brian Hagedorn called his likely victory to the state Supreme Court a “historic” win and said he was confident his slim lead in the race is insurmountable.

“We made history in a significant way,” Hagedorn said, referring to winning despite millions spent against him. “Our margin of victory looks to be insurmountable.”

Hagedorn’s comments at Waukesha’s Ingleside Hotel Wednesday morning come as he maintains a razor-thin 5,911 vote lead over his opponent, Wisconsin Chief Appeals Court Judge Lisa Neubauer. A total of 1.2 million votes were cast, meaning he won with a 0.49 percent margin, close enough for Neubauer to request a recount but she would have to pay for it.

The Neubauer campaign’s website Wednesday was soliciting donations and volunteers in the case of a recount “to make sure every vote counts.”

The Journal Times reached out on Wednesday to State Rep. Greta Neubauer, D-Racine, who is Lisa Neubauer’s daughter. She referred comments to the video. A watch party was held Tuesday at Red Onion, 555 Main St., in Downtown Racine. But Lisa Neubauer never made a public appearance during the event.

666

With Lisa Neubauer gone – Greta needs to go next!

When Greta Neubauer runs again for Public Office, Informed Voters need to be pragmatic and make the choice to vote either FOR Greta’s opponent, or AGAINST Greta. Voting for the Lessor of two evils, or to stop evil, is the pragmatic alternative!

Remember that: If you have two opposing forces that are equal – neither can be victorious – and government gridlock is always a *WIN* *WIN* for private sector Citizens. LET NO EVIL BE DONE!

As for Racine – it is a lost cause. Just forget about it – nothing will ever change. Enjoy the Decline!

The most recent check of Racine Property Assessments, done TODAY – April, 3, 2019, evidences that the *MIRACLE* of a 50% decrease in property tax assessment value since 2013 has *MAGICALLY happened at 3907 Lighthouse Drive and continues to hold steady at the Lake Michigan Lakefront Mansion now owned by the Masons!

 

See the previous post:  Lifestyles of Racine’s Rich, Famous & Politically Connected

Yeah, Yeah, Fraternity, Equality and Liberty…… while Looting A City of Ill Repute is the true name of the game!

All the usual suspects *WON* in City of Racine, with a Voter turnout which can only be blamed on the failure of RUSD to properly educate young minds full of mush. Because RUSD is actively misleading them.

From JT:

City of Racine incumbents re-elected except in 5th District

RACINE — Tuesday was a good day for incumbents seeking re-election in the City of Racine, though there will be a few new faces on the City Council.

Alderman Sandy Weidner’s last-minute run as a write-in mayoral candidate received approximately a quarter of the votes, but not nearly enough for a win.

Final, but unofficial results showed that Mayor Cory Mason received 6,243 votes and 2,274 write-in votes for Weidner. A total of 2,274 write-ins were cast, according to City Clerk Tara Coolidge.

“Doing this is a real honor for me, and I can’t thank the citizens of Racine enough for giving me their trust and confidence for four years to build a City of Racine that builds a strong middle class for everybody,” Mason said at a watch party at Red Onion, 555 Main St.

“(A city) that is equitable, that is inclusive, that is innovative and that has all the workings of a middle class that allows families to thrive, and that’s what we’ll be focused on for the next four years,” Mason said.

OK! STOP RIGHT THERE!

1. When will the Mason’s property assessment be marked to reality for a Lake Michigan Lakefront Mansion, so that they pay their fair share?

2. When will the definition of “workers” be expanded to include those in the private sector and private Business Owners?

3. When will secret Court and Government proceedings end?

4. When will Government Employees share in the pain that private sector workers have endured since the 1970’s? To include making meaningful contributions towards pensions, health insurance, and experiencing pay cuts? While retirement age is increased to 62 (minimum) or 67?

5. When will *FREE*, no limits to healthcare expenses, be eliminated for certain elected and public employees?

5. When will the parking lots for workers at government buildings be eliminated as government workers are required to Ryde the BUS, taxi, bicycle, walk, or use other forms of alternative transportation?

6. When will Residency rules be established for all public employees and elected officials so that they actually pay their fair share into the Community instead of looting it and fleeing to lower tax Communities?

7. When will punitive taxes be levied on government workers who retire, and then leave their Communities and/or WI and claim tax free status in Tax-Haven States which don’t levy income taxes?

Probably…. NEVER!

Enjoy the Decline…. And

Stick ‘EM up George! City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason and his Gang of Bandits is coming for your wealth!

Squalid conditions found

Racine woman accused of child neglect; squalid conditions reportedly found

RACINE — A Racine woman is facing neglect charges after the children in her care were found unkempt in a dirty home without running water or heat.

Kayla A. Olson, of the 2600 block of Coolidge Avenue, is facing four felony charges of child neglect. Two of the charges stem from neglecting a child under the age of 6.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Thursday, officers were dispatched to the 2600 block of Coolidge Avenue for a welfare check. When they arrived, Olson met the officers in the front yard and told them they could check on the children in her care.

Inside the house, officers reported seeing garbage, raw food and clothes on the kitchen floor with the oven open. Olson said the oven was open to heat the home. Officers said the home smelled like a landfill and they had to repeatedly step outside to get fresh air.

The kitchen floor was reportedly covered in wood and glass shavings and the walls were spattered with food. Olson told police there was no running water.

A 3-year-old child not wearing shoes was covered with dirt up to the pants line. The child’s face was covered with food and dirt and the child’s hair was dirty. It had been several days since the child had a bath, the child said.

As officers walked further into the home, they smelled a stronger odor of raw sewage. So much garbage was in the home that they had a difficult time finding a place to walk. In the living room, there were no lights and a space heater was blowing hot air.

A 7-year-old was located sitting on a bed in an upstairs bedroom wearing a winter jacket due to the cold. Next to the bed was a bin filled with feces and urine. In the bathroom, officers said the bathtub was filled with feces and urine. In the basement, there was approximately 2 feet of standing water and raw sewage.

666

HEY! But Racine has five grossly overpaid and overcompensated taxpayer funded officials in the Mayor’s Office.

Some people can’t afford to live comfortably because those empowered with the right of taxation take everything away for themselves so they can live large!

Such Persons include Rebecca and Cory Mason!

Lifestyles of Racine’s Rich, Famous & Politically Connected

All City of Racine residents should be as fortunate as Mayor Cory Mason and Municipal Judge Rebecca Mason, who purchased a Lakefront home at 3907 Lighthouse Drive for a steep discount from the (politically connected) owner who benefited, over time, at seeing his property assessment  drop by HALF – from a high of $800,000 in 2008, to a new low of $440,000 in 2018!

 

The former owner is Robert H. Lehner II. Meanwhile, there is a much younger Benjamin Lehner, who is employed by City of Racine Housing & Community Development as a Community Development Program Specialist –

Ben was also a member of Monte Osterman’s questionably legal Root River Council Inc., as was then Representative Cory Mason.  When a request was made, in accordance with IRS regulations, to view the Root River Council’s form 990, Monte Osterman refused to comply, because the Organization had failed to properly complete the registration process and was not filing 990’s – despite receiving tens of thousands of $$$ in grants from DNR, DOA Wisconsin Coastal Management Program, and others. When an Ethics Complaint was filed – it was immediately dismissed, and Monte Osterman directed any further requests to view the Form 990 to his Attorney, Rebecca Mason. According to IRS records, the Root River Council was TERMINATED as an Organization in 2013. Miraculously, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, it was re-born under former City Development Director and current RUSD Board member Brian O’connell in 2016!

666

Then – WOW!  in 2019 the Mayor’s Office – under Cory Mason – added two positions and nearly $300,000 in expenses the yearly budget! In a city with a shrinking population that has suffered a Fox-scam Failure to provide the 13,000 jobs paying at least $53,000 each.  See the website linked below for more information:

Concerned Racine County Residents Just Say NO To Foxconn

Let’s Make A Better Mt Pleasant

 But back to the spectacularly failing Cory Mason 2019 Budget for Ratcine Taxpayers:

The Cory Mason budget to increase the Mayor’s office from 3 to five and add an additional burden of expense to taxpayers is an *OUTRAGE!

Those ensconced in Ratcine City Hall live like Kings and Queens – while those who can – do their best to live outside Ratcine which levy’s an outrageous amount of tax so Public Officials can take it eazy and *LIVE IT UP* at taxpayer expense!

Talking Racine Panel Member Ken Lumpkin Chairs a BINGO Hall Which Hasn’t Paid Property Taxes Since 2011!

In attempting to find the answer to the question of why the Racine Equality Project shattered into disarray following the Complaint which was filed against Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman, an investigation has discovered that at the same time (former) Racine County Supervisor  Ken Lumpkin, also a member of the Racine Equality Project, was the Chairman of the 501c-3 non-profit Northside Redevelopment Project INC., located at 1661 Douglas Avenue, also known as Flatiron Village Mall.

From the Equality Project archives:

The Racine Equality Project Files An Ethics Complaint

On June 25, 2014, The Racine Equality filed an Ethics Complaint against District 3 Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman. Following the filing of the Complaint, Dr. Ken Yorgan had this to say:

The Racine Equality Project, in response to citizen concerns, has pursued an investigation into the activities of certain elected officials and non-elected public employees. This investigation has been done with a thorough examination of public records, including tapes and transcripts of public meetings and statements by the parties being investigated. What we have found is very revealing, often disappointing, and sometimes quite disturbing.

As a result of this investigation, and following review by independent legal counsel, a Compliant with substantial evidence has been filed with the Racine County Board of Ethics regarding certain activities by District 3 County Supervisor Monte Osterman. This is personally disappointing to me, because I was originally a supporter of Mr. Osterman when he ran for office, just over two years ago. Mr. Osterman ran and was elected following the retirement of Supervisor Diane Lange, who had served the County Board for many years with honor, integrity and courage and it is especially sad to reflect on the loss of her presence on the County Board.

The evidence that has been submitted to the Racine County Board of Ethics is factual and compelling. It is now their responsibility to review it, conduct a proper investigation, hear Mr. Osterman’s reply, and if necessary, refer the matter to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

From Journal Times:

Complaint filed against county supervisor

RACINE COUNTY — A complaint has been filed against Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman related to the Root River redevelopment project.

The complaint alleges that Osterman did not properly disclose financial interests and that the Root River Council, of which Osterman is a member, is not a nonprofit organization like it claims.

Assistant County Corporation Counsel Michael Lanzdorf confirmed Thursday that the county received the complaint. It now goes to county’s Board of Ethics, which will first determine whether there is probable cause to continue, and if so, would hold a hearing and issue their findings, Lanzdorf said.

Osterman said he had not seen the complaint and declined comment.

The complaint was filed Wednesday by Timothy Elmer, in cooperation with the Racine Equality Project. The Equality Project is a group of local residents that has filed several other ethics complaints against local officials. Elmer said Osterman has not been transparent about his economic interests related to the RootWorks: Root River Corridor Redevelopment Plan.

666

And of course, the Complaint was immediately dismissed and called frivolous – even though Monte Osterman never released any required IRS Form 990’s, as demanded by IRS Regulations, and shortly afterwards, Cory Mason’s wife, Rebecca Mason, stepped in as his Attorney and continued to provide cover for Monte Osterman and his failure to provide the required form 990’s, even though he had received tens of thousands of dollars in government grant money, much of it guided by John Dickert through the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program and DNR.

Complaint against county supervisor dismissed

RACINE — A complaint filed against Racine County Supervisor Monte Osterman regarding the Root River redevelopment project was dismissed Wednesday by the county’s Board of Ethics.

The complaint alleged that Osterman did not properly disclose financial interests in the project and that the Root River Council, of which Osterman is a member, is not a nonprofit organization as it claims.

The Internal Revenue Service confirmed the organization’s nonprofit status, Assistant County Corporation Counsel Michael Lanzdorf said.

Other allegations “are either unsupported by fact sufficient to suggest an ethics violation or unrelated to the discharge of Supervisor Osterman’s official duties as a board supervisor, and thus outside the board’s scope of authority,” Lanzdorf said before the Board of Ethics’ 5-0 vote to dismiss the complaint.

The complaint was filed by Timothy Elmer in cooperation with the Racine Equality Project. The Equality Project is a group of local residents that has filed several other ethics complaints against local officials.

In addition to questioning the Root River Council’s nonprofit status, Elmer claimed Osterman stood to benefit financially from the RootWorks: Root River Corridor Redevelopment Plan.

The Racine Equality Project turned out to be nothing but a paper tiger – led by a toothless Jim Spodick, who refused to take effective, coordinated legal action, which it had clear cause for! It was the final blow, which led to the dissolution of the emerging organization.

SO what had happened, and what went so wrong?

When the Complaint was being formulated, plans had been made for a major announcement at the Courthouse – with print and TV media present, Jim Spodick and Ken Yorgan in suits and ties, speaking to the press corps and more releases of information and statements to follow which were to be filmed by Scott Nelson. Assignments had been handed out, and everyone had their own area of responsibility. Then came the day of the Press Release concerning the Complaint being filed and the Press Conference which would follow.

And it fell flat on it’s face.

It didn’t happen.

Jim Spodick, Ken Yorgan, Scott Nelson and other members simply weren’t around…..

Two members dragged the podium down to the Courthouse – but the designated Spokespeople NEVER showed up – just a lone Journal Times Reporter.

The Office was found to be deserted –

Jim Spodick and Ken Yorgan had run away, and were nowhere to be found….

When Jim Spodick was presented with a request to obtain copies of other Racine County Officials Economic Interest Statements – he flat out refused.

What had gone wrong? What happened?

The search for answers began, and why I can’t say for sure what the answer is, because those in the know won’t reveal the answer – it is not in their best interest – I have my suspicions.

666

Searching around property records, I discovered that Flatiron Village Mall, 1661 Douglas Avenue, was being operated as a BINGO Hall, poorly maintained, and had not paid the property taxes due since 2011!

 

Racine County tax records indicate that Flatiron Village Mall, 1661 Douglas Ave., hasn’t paid a singe penny of their property taxes since 2011, and is now $217,604.36 in arrears! residents in the City of Racine should be outraged!

From City of Racine tax records:

666

Flatiron Village Mall is controlled  by the Northside Redevelopment Project INC, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation which has been granted a license to operate a BINGO Hall there, and is chaired by former Racine County Supervisor, and current Talking Racine Panel Member, Ken Lumpkin!

The 2017 form 990 is available by clicking on the link: 2017 Flatiron Mall 990

Highlights from the form 990:

First, that they are operating a BINGO Hall at the location to fund their operation:

Second, the list of the 5 officers of the Corporation, indicating that Ken Lumpkin is the Chairman.

Third, A “Fuzzy” Revenue and Expense statement, which indicates that they are licensed to operate a Gaming establishment – and are there volunteers – Yes or No – is left unanswered….. It IS a cash business – so ponder that for a moment…. hmmmmm,! I can “guess the rest” LOL!

Fourth – the Northside Redevelopment Project donates all it’s proceeds – whose major contributor appears to be the BINGO Hall – to the Flatiron Business & Professional Association! HAR! HAR! HAR!

Nothing to see here – except more SCAM-O-RAMA RACINE! Sheriff Schmaling needs to investigate this outrage! While City of Racine/State of Wisconsin needs to revoke it’s gaming license and Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave needs to begin the tax foreclosure process so that the property can be sold to a developer who will pay their property taxes!

Meanwhile….Root River Council was terminated at (most likely) Monte Osterman’s request – failing to file form 990’s for certain years…. with the possible assistance of Rebecca Mason….

Then, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes – reborn under Brian O’Connell! It would appear that the grant money continues to flow in….

 

And in the end – Monte Osterman got the last laugh – and he who laughs last – laughs best!

Monte – I salute you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tax and Spend Racine Mayor Cory Mason Proposes to Increase the Mayors Office From 3 Positions to 5! Will the Common Council Defend Taxpayers and Just Say NO!?

As incredible as it seems, in former Democrat Mayor John Dickert’s Broke-Down City of Ill Repute, which was so broke he had to break down and beg Non-Profits to send in donations – newly elected Democrat Mayor Cory Mason proposes increasing the City Administration Staff from 3 positions to 5 positions – while nearly doubling the cost in salaries and benefits to taxpayers!

Concerned and Over-taxed Residents can view the City of Racine 2019 Budget by clicking on the link: 2019 Proposed Budget

Tax and Spend Mayor Cory Mason plans to add 2 positions to the Mayor’s Office – a Communications Coordinator, and a  Strategic Initiatives/Community Partnerships Office! At an additional cost of $266,845!

From the proposed 2019 budget, pages 22 and 25:

It seems unbelievable – but it is true! The Mayor’s Office doesn’t need 5 positions – at best it requires 2! What the Common Council needs to do is reject Mayor Cory Mason’s outrageous budget proposal and eliminate 3 positions; restricting the Office to 2 positions! They can choose from  Titles – Administrator, Mayor and Assistant – only TWO are required to efficiently operate a City like Racine. But since the overstaffed Mayor’s Office has become accustomed to 3 positions, for this budget, the Common Council should amend the 2019 budget to retain the existing 3 positions and plan to eliminate another position in the next budget.

Since it is now obvious that Racine Mayor Cory Mason can’t handle the job he was elected to do – without a bloated staff – WHY DID HE RUN FOR THE OFFICE OF MAYOR? It appears to be just a ploy so he could hire family and friends into high paying positions with a huge taxpayer funded tax-free benefit package with functionally meaningless jobs with impressive titles.

Ask Racine Mayor Cory Mason – Why did you run for Mayor if you couldn’t handle the job?

The City of Racine DOES NOT NEED a BLOATED and Unnecessary staff of 5 persons collecting taxpayer $$$, bennies & pensions in the Mayor’s Office!

Truth be told – when a City has both an Administrator and a Mayor – the Mayor’s position is superfluous and he acts mainly as a figurehead – an unnecessary expense who extends a welcome mat to visitors and dignitaries. Racine Mayor Cory Mason and his hiring spree with a bloated staff are an UNNECESSARY EXPENSE!

The scope of statutory authority allotted to the Mayor’s Office is VERY limited! 

From page 21 of Cory Mason’s proposed 2019 budget; the function of the Mayor’s Office is very limited:

 

That’s it! The Mayor does NOT need a Communications Coordinator, and a  Strategic Initiatives/Community Partnerships Office! Especially at an additional cost of $266,845! If Cory Mason wants to step outside the bounds of his statutory duties and authority, then he needs to fund those activities out of his own pocket, NOT the taxpayers of Racine!

Further, if Cory Mason can’t handle, or is incompetent, to wield the elective position he campaigned for, then Cory Mason shouldn’t have run for that position in the first place! It is time for Racine Taxpayers to demand that the Common Council, in the future, pare the Mayor’s Office to 2 positions and choose to either have an Administrator or Mayor, with an Assistant. PERIOD!

In addition to being Racine’s biggest tax and spend Mayor, Racine Mayor Cory Mason and Municipal Judge Rebecca Mason refuse to pay their fair share of the property taxes, which they expect to spend and profit from! And how has the value of their Lakefront Property, purchased by the Mason’s in 2018 from Robert H. Lehner II, Father of Benjamin Lehner, who is employed by City of Racine Housing & Community Development as a Community Development Program Specialist and close personal friend of Cory’s from the Root River Council,  decreased in assessed value by nearly $400,000 from 2013 to 2019? IT’S A MYSTERY!

See the post: https://arrestrecordsofracinewipublicofficials.wordpress.com/2018/08/19/lifestyles-of-racines-rich-famous-politically-connected/

Who else in City of Racine has seen the assessed value of their Lakefront property drop by 50% since 2013? Besides former owner and politically connected Robert H. Lehner II, Father of Benjamin Lehner, who is employed by City of Racine Housing & Community Development as a Community Development Program Specialist ? The home now owned by Mayor Cory Mason and Municipal Judge Rebecca Mason? More SCAM – O – RAMA Racine!

Concerned City of Racine Residents need to demand that Racine City Tax Assessor Bill Bowers  provide the same favor he performed for Robert H. Lehner II, Father of City Employee Benjamin Lehner, and drop their 2019 assessed value to 50% of it’s 2013 assessed value!

Cory and Rebecca Mason plan to live *LARGE off of unsuspecting Racine taxpayers who they expect to fund their lavish Brooklyn, NY lifestyle! The Racine Common Council needs to stand up for the Residents and tell Cory NO! To a bloated Mayor’s Office! While the City Assessor needs to accurately assess their Lakefront Mansion so that they pay their fair share of the Cities expenses! They need to stop cheating and taxing Residents out of their homes and businesses.

 

City of Racine 2017 Audited Financial Statement Reports RDA Lost Over $7,000,000 in 2017!

City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason Continues on With Former Mayor John Dickert’s Tradition of Looting a City Of Ill Repute! That Blue Fist is the Power of Extortion – Being Shoved up Residents Azz’s Via Onerous and Excessive Confiscatory Taxes and Fees to Fund the Lifestyles of Racine’s Rich & Famous!

See the Post: https://arrestrecordsofracinewipublicofficials.wordpress.com/2018/08/19/lifestyles-of-racines-rich-famous-politically-connected/

City of Racine Taxpayers who feel the burn that the ever increasing property taxes and fees imposed by City of Racine Mayors and Alderpersons are becomingly more and more onerous and out of line with the Consumer Price Index, aren’t just imagining that burning feeling – it is real, as the 2017 Audited Financial Statement reveals.

The 2017 Audited Financial Statement is available here:     https://www.cityofracine.org/Finance/AuditedFinancialStatements/

From the 2017 Audited Financial Statement, Page 65:

It is just Business as Usual in City of Racine, as the unaccountable Racine Development Authority lost $7,304,144 in TID collections, and passed that cost on to Residential taxpayers – with NO  repayment schedule required – since the Residential taxpayers are on the hook and going to pay – through extortion – aka onerous property taxes, by any other name….

From the 2017 Audited Financial Statement:

Former Mayor John Dickerts much bally-hooed Tid 18 – Machinery Row was the loss leader – costing taxpayers nearly $7,000,000 – not counting the destruction ,clean up costs and planning time wasted by the RDA in concocting yet another failed plan for the criminally led City of Racine:

Watch as John Dickert and Cory Mason announce the *FAILED* $65M Machinery Row Project:

Mayor John Dickert speaks during a press conference Tuesday, June 10, 2014 announcing a commercial-residential project that will start at $65 million./Video by Scott Anderson scott.anderson@journaltimes.com

Well, well, the spectacularly *FAILED* Machinery Row  Project might actually COST taxpayers $65M when it is all done and settled…. instead of attracting constructive and productive development. Residential Taxpayers will *NEVER* see any tax relief in criminally led Mayor Cory Mason’s Blue Fist Collective!

Machinery Row – TID 18 – as Promised:

Machinery Row as Delivered:

Meanwhile, Former Mayor John Dickert’s bestest personal friend – Micah Waters – continues to hold onto the former Porter’s Property while refusing to pay the property taxes due and shifting that burden to the much beleagured Residential Taxpayers living in City of Racine. City Officials plan on Residents being deaf, dumb, and blind – and they are correct!

As Promised by John Dickert and BFF Micah Waters!

Micah Waters and John Dickert – BFF

 

As Delivered:

 

HEY Long – Beleaguered Taxpayers living in City of Racine – Stay in Line and Don’t ask any Pesky Questions!

OR ELSE!

After all, the Mayor of Racine has large costs and expenses…

Don’t Stop Believing’
