You may have read that the City of Racine has no money, you may have read in the J-T that the city of Racine is 4 Million short, Ron Thomas Char of the Cable Commission said more like 6 million, who knows with court cases going on what the real number may end up being, hell The Mayor himself has said we have no money
So much so that a very basic service that many need in the city of ruins the city of Racine our bus line may be cut even more, as it is using the BUS to go to work go to the store maybe the Dr is next to impossible.
As much as the Transit and Parking Commission might want to fight more cuts, from the J-T this morning “Alderman Ray DeHahn didn’t mince words last week when he told his fellow Transit and Parking Commissioners that he couldn’t support any more cuts to city bus service”. If the Mayor wants to cut say by by. After all who rides the Bus?
Who other then the poor, the handicapped, and others who can not drive or perhaps afford a car? How dare they ask our Mayor John Dickert for the basic service a City provides those who need help? Should not the rich white boaters come first? Should not doing everything as many believe he is doing to make Downtown Racine as White as possible?
Mayor Dickert at City Hall?
How else can Our Mayor attract the wealthy Boaters- the Condo buyers he needs to gentrify Racine?
The Mayor is right we have no money, we are seeing hikes in fees (Water rates have went up) I expect we will see more sewer bonds sold and games with TIF 18 should it get started to help fund the the plans of Mayor John Dickert and other then to find ways to enrich his pals (see Racine City Hall or Belle TV) what might they be?
Party! After all not like his pals need a BUS.
Now lets Party!
Just do not ask for anything for the Poor, or the Minorities
