Will Ms Mary Osterman be the subject of a new Ethics probe?

Will Ms Mary Osterman be the subject of a new Ethics probe?

A group ranging from the 7 to both City/County elected officials I understand, are talking together about just that.

The subject to be looked into by a request to the Ethics Board of the City, would be advertising/sponsorship of Belle City TV, and if she is paying the same price as anyone not on the Cable Commission would pay, or is She getting a better rate for ads because she is on the Cable Commission , a pal of the Mayor’s (after all she was helping on his last reelection campaign)   and a strong part of changing CAR 25 to Belle City TV thereby helping friends of the Mayor?  As some members of this group have expressed that concern to me.

Might be a discounted price (if she got one Open Records request when in this morning) be her reward? If so is that ethical? IMHO its something of value far greater then say a Lunch or a few cups of Coffee to say thanks.  http://vimeo.com/79988345  is the spot. This may be a better link Check out “Copecetic Hat Store” by @TheBelleTV on Vimeo http://vimeo.com/79988345   The Twitter quote as well

Mr Love at CAR 25 confirmed that Belle City  TV produced it.

So how much did they charge? Who set the price?  Could you or I get an Ad at the same price?

If not why not?

Goes into a whole new area, that being if they are selling ads a goal of the Mayor of the City of Racine who is buying them? Is just the only one? Is the $$ going to the City or are others making a commission from the sale? Does Time Warner know (selling of Ads might be in violation of the agreement we (City of Racine has with Time Warner) Belle City TV is selling Ads/Sponsorships?

Will Time Warner sue?

Speaking of being sued. Belle City is showing old TV shows and Cartoons on Belle City TV more questions:

What happened to the old producers? Are no new producers coming on? If so why?

Has the old shows been OKed as being in the Public Domain for Broadcast? Interesting the fact that Belle City TV is looking for money makes it a far different entity, then just a city station not looking to get paid.

When, not if Viacom finds out and they will, and still own the rights for broadcast on a Cable Network how much will they sue for?

Why do I think that we will soon all regret the Mayor wanting to be a big TV star like his Hero?


Just just in!

I understand that an Open Records request on complaints about programing on Belle City TV would be fruitful Oh what fun Racine is

PS Copy of the Open Records asked for

Good Morning

I am asking for the following Open Records:

1) A list of all Paid Sponsors of Belle City TV from 1/1/13 to 12/1/13 and the amount charged
2) The amount of money charged to  Ms Mary Osterman for her sponsorship packages for “advertising” of her store Copasetic
located in Racine WI.
3) Copies of any contracts or Emails between Belle City TV and Ms. Osterman from 5/1/13 and 12/1/13.
4) The name of the person clearing the Viacom synicated programing running on Belle City TV over the last month
5) a list of all Racine area producers  as of 1/3/13

I understand that a reasonable charge maybe incurred if so I need to be contacted prior . Note  PDF copies would be fine would be fine

  1. I think you have been cenored by the JT? Article re $25,000 consulting fee approved by unanimous decision last night. When I saw it a while ago there were 4 comments I think and now there are zero. Re Mary Osterman. Yes, I think the new ethics proposal should be tested before it goes into effect but I don’t know that Ken Yorgan feels that way, I don’t want to be a mad hatter which I definitely would be if I got charged by Kenosha for questioning May Osterman’s ethics……because I would go to jail and force someone I know to take care of my cat before I would pay this city anything for a right I am supposed to have.

  2. Mr. Racine says:

    “A pal of the Mayor’s (after all she was helping on his last reelection campaign)”

    Mary Osterman-Jerger was doing a little bit more than helping – she was the Treasurer!

    It does seem a little odd for paid advertising to be going on over at cable access Belle-TV as well as syndicated programs being run – who’s paying for the programming? The Thursday Fall schedule indicates these programs are running:

    CTV Beverly Hillbillies
    CTV Jack Benny Show
    CTV I Love Lucy
    CTV Life With Elizabeth
    CTV Lone Ranger
    CTV Andy Griffith
    CTV Bonanza
    CTV Cisco Kid



    I do note that Kenosha favorite – DR. DESTRUCTION! will be on Saturday nights at 11:00pm! My life is now complete!
