Racine the Downtown the Money keeps rolling in

 

 

No one is loved as much as Mayor John Dickert

Well no one in Downtown Racine, just think of all the money sent to downtown Racine by this Mayor.

The Facade Grants

The idea that just maybe paying your property taxes is just an idea, then perhaps the business “renting”  space may not be paying rent allowing this business to remain open?    We cant have what few members of the public come downtown to see the  real numbers of open businesses vs empty storefronts can we?  Can Racine be this corrupt? Hell, next I might say our Mayor will sue his own city!

We have the City spending $$ on TID 17 (Porters) now what other spending is the City doing in Downtown Racine? Is this $$ going to projects improving businesses or just allowing the illusions of property?

Speaking of that! See the new Images from CAR 25?  The interesting stories about Downtown? I do not think anyone outside of Racine is seeing the content but the stories do suggest that there is things going on in and around the Downtown.

Is this so Dickert can justify the spending?  Was Oserman given the (sub)contract for part of the City Hall Bathrooms to save his storefronts on Main St? When that (I think $86,000) runs out  will they then close up?

Got told a bit of info I hope to follow up on, that the Boaters do NOT shop further then 1 Block away from the Boats.  If true then very few are even getting to Main, st yet alone 6th St.

Might the $$ from the Boaters not be in the $$ Boat owners spend but on the $$ Goverment units spend  on building/maintaining the Marina?

    That’s where the $$$ is, not from the CHEEP Boaters who are being subsidized off the backs of the working poor!

    Let’s see….. Gleason Concrete – Gleason is on the County Supervisor’s Board and Mount Pleasant Village President.

    Mrs. Monte Osterman-Jerger – Racine’s local power couple – Racine’s County and City of Racine Insiders who benefit from public works contracts -AND vote on them!

    Jim Ladwig gets the Lake front – to spend millions of $$$$ with cronies.

    Dishonest John has Downtown, Uptown, TID’s, Team Porters, and lots of cronies, family and friends!

    Property is NOTHING but a Tax Liability in Racine County – which has a long standing history of a Kulture of Korruption!

    “State of Wisconsin vs. Bonnie L Ladwig
    Dane County Case Number 2002CM004306

    The defendant Bonnie L Ladwig was found guilty of the following charge(s) in this case.

    Code/Ethics Violations by PublicOfficial, an unclassified misdemeanor, Wisconsin Statutes 19.58(1).”

    This is why Dishonest John appoints/keeps a close eye on the Ethics Board, which he controls, and why Republicans turn a blind eye to the rampant corruption in Racine. The Politicians NEVER want to be held accountable for their misdeeds – EVER – AGAIN!

    I know all this is really hard to believe, but it’s quite acurate, and isn’t it just completely mind blowing to think YOUR car25 access channel is taking YOUR money that could go for streetlights or police and fire, and spending it on Dickert’s buddies to tell you to shop downtown at Dickert’s buddies stores???? It’s unbelievable really that residents allow this nonsense and how is it really working out? That channel has lost all credibility and it’s ridiculous we pay to watch fat ass Helding and the other obese aldermen sit around and tell us how great they are, AND WE PAY FOR IT!!!! ABSURD!!! but then again city hall is well aware Racine residents are complete morons and don’t pay attention to anything……I do believe things are changing and when the hammer falls, some of these lying cheats will end up in prison where they belong.

    Let’s just assume = for conversations sake – that the lessons from the past were well-learned by Racine County’s current leaders:

    Look at the JOKE of an Ethics Board appointed by Dishonest John and the lack of action by Republican Appointee Rich Chiapette:

    Dane County Case Number 2002CM004306

    The Republicrats will make sure that will NEVER happen again!

    How about Municipal Judge Mark Nielsen:

    RACINE, Wis. – A municipal judge arrested on suspicion of drunken driving said he knows better and plans to plead guilty to the crime.

    Racine Municipal Judge Mark F. Nielsen was arrested late Friday after allegedly driving erratically, according to police reports.

    “I am completely responsible for this. I am an adult and I know better,” the 52-year-old said in a prepared statement. “The people of the city have the right to expect much better behavior from me.”

    A state trooper took him to a hospital to draw blood because a Breathalyzer test couldn’t determine his blood alcohol content, Nielsen said.

    The test hasn’t been completed, but Nielsen said he doesn’t expect to be under the 0.08 legal limit.

    BUT – NO RECORD ON CCAP!

    How did that occur?

    Gleason Concrete – Mark Gleason Concrete on all kinds of taxpayer funded jobs that he voted on!

    Mr. Monte Osterman-Jerger – over 4 years of not paying property taxes on 409 Main St.

    Racine County is run by criminals – who are covering up their misdeeds and leading Racine To Ruin!

    How about the Criminal record of City of Racine’s City Clerk Janice Johnson Martin? (not all records are hers)
    CCAP: http://wcca.wicourts.gov/pager.do;jsessionid=6A1DA95EF0CF0BB725F95B38604DBE91.render6?cacheId=F6BB39DE5ACCB441399A93C6AA928406&offset=0&sortColumn=0&sortDirection=DESC

    Retail theft, credit card delinquencies, etc.

    YET – she is in a position of Fiduciary Trust?

    The Village Board launched an investigation into a payment scheme between Police Officer Curtis Schollmeier and then Police Chief Jeffrey Meier after a Journal Times report found the village paid Schollmeir’s family and his friends a total of $4,900 for squad car work in 2009″
