How much will this cost Racine? My .02

How much will this lawsuit the one just filed by some former Bar Owners on a a long list of Local elected Goverment folks and pals of Mayor John Dickert cost?
100,000 1,000,000 more? I do not mean if old the Bar Owners win, that I think be mega Millions but just in the basic defense to the suit.
The defense Lawyers will get paid, the expenses of the Lawyer(s) will be paid what might be the hourly rate 100 hr, 200 hr? I have no idea but with a case this big my guess is that it be two Lawyers a P.I. and other staff will be needed. Copies of records will have to be obtained.
Thinking that be over 200 Billable Hours just in the first few months for that group.
Will the Mayor of Racine use a PR firm to shore up fall out on his reputation? How much will that be? Who will pay for that? What will be cut from the City budget? Will Mayor John Dickert start a defense fund?
How does this impact city operations? Does this impact our Mayor’s other jobs? I think this case will.
IMHO we living in Racine for the first time ever will get access to City Records that the Good Old Boys not like us to know about.
Info on projects from Roorworks to Team Porter’s and unlike before thinking real reporters will be very interested in this information.
Could even shine the light on Cockroaches
Be interesting how our Mayor gets us to pay the bill, this time
Hey at least this time jobs are coming to Racine God knows how many lawyers will be needed.
That’s just for for the Mayor and Aldermen a whole issue maybe at what point if they are found at fault will the City stop pay for their defense?
However there are some who may not be able to have the City pay for their defense. How will they? Will they get a lawyer or will they make a deal or what?
Lets hope that all defendants have the money to get good Lawyers I think they they will need them.
So let’s put this out in the world will the strain of the Lawsuit and perhaps $$ issues caused end marriages? Force Businesses to close? Maybe as records come into light cause other roles to be looked into. I just do not see this ending well for the Mayor or us the Folks of Racine who will get to pay for this.
