So I get asked this all the time, if the Mayor is doing such a bad job why do so business leaders like him?
Easy its the only chance they have.
Image that your a Downtown or Uptown business or property owner. You see the same things we all do our taxes going up more business closing.
From your books you too know that sales are not what you like them to be and you know from the Mayor’s own words that taxes will be going up.
You followed the Porter’s idea and may be asking what is going on with that?
You hear The Mayor talk about doing something with Uptown
You may think of selling out and getting out but you see from the property listings that you may not get what you need should you bail. What other choice do you have then to believe that Mayor John Dickert can change things around. Often I have seen others put energy in foolish ideas (read Rootworks) because the the emotional investment (not the money) is too much to leave.
Would someone lie about what will happen with RootWorks Would they lie about how great they will make Uptown?
Yet we know that earlier ideas have failed (Artist relocation) (Delta Hawk how many Jobs have they created) but if Dickert fails you lose your business perhaps your property.
As well you know that properties owing back taxes for Years have not been seized, perhaps you think that the City will not allow the county to take it. Perhaps you think your membership in the DRC protects you somehow, or you simply chose to believe that the Mayor will save you.
So when you read about what his plans are for CAR 25 you say nothing because he needs this CATV station to carry out his plans and maybe his pals know what they are doing
When you read about Park 6 or the Place on 6th St you think who cares about Black owned bars that play Hip Hop they need to close because well they (Blacks) might keep your customers away so if a few laws are bent its o.k., and how dare a higher court overturn a Racine Court
Does not the City Hall Bathrooms look nice? Great Roundabout! Too bad about Station 5 and we have more police then we need, the Mayor said he had crime under control. Sad to heat about “Miss Smith” getting raped but the way she dressed… If only the Blogers quit writing bad things about Racine, the Mayor said more boaters would come..
The road goes on like this until the day the County does seize your building or the taxes you try to pay you do not have the money to pay them.. So you pack your bags to perhaps to be homeless and ask what happened?
Nothing to Mayor John Dickert he will still get paid he and others are in office, perhaps nothing to FOJ they know the Mayor and perhaps s got the word about say Case moving out or the massive lay offs at St Mary’s so they could get out
As for you you joined The Suicide Cult of Racine.
Fact many at Jonestown drank the Kool Aid offered them after all, would Jim Jones realty hurt anyone unless he had to?
Just trust the Mayor dear after all he looks so nice on TV
