As you may know Ed Diehl Alderman of the 15 is running for Mayor of the City of Racine this would be of course Mayor John Dickert.
I was there the night he spoke to say he was going to run, I myself had just a few hours notice as others did so Diehl’s speech was given to a small number of folks was interesting to see who did manage to make to the event.
Afterword I have spoke to many and agree that this race will not be an easy one to win in Dickert’s favor we have:
More money in the Bank
Easy to raise more
The cost of this race could top 75,0000 easy
The Dickert Machine being the Journal Times, The Radio of Zombies WRJN none that will print/report anything other then what the Mayor wants them to.
The 1St Dem C.D. to include the Knock and drag team + Dirty Tricks Boys
The Downtown Crowd to include folks who will vote for anyone as long as the City keeps dumping $$$$ into Downtown
Members of the GOP who I thought would be leading the charge to get rid of our Mayor but more interested in the gravy train called Reef point Marina
Under Mayor Dickert:
We have dropped in Bond Rating
Loss Court Cases from City Unions, Tax Payers seeking and winning money to be returned and resentment costing at least 400K with perhaps more to come
#1 or #2 in Unemployment in the State
Team Porters a Big Fail
DeltaHawk employing how many?
The Ending of CAR 25 with yet more money being spent then was costing the city to do so in house
A great record to run on
Ed Diehl has on his side that he is smart and an honest man. one might say you cant win on that.
I think that is far more powerful then it looks at first glance.
Ed Diehl has not sued his own City
Ed Diehl is not being sued under RICO
Ed Diehl is respected by 90% of them who have met him
Ed Diehl fears no man alive
understands Social Media and what it can and can’t do
will run a clean race
Now unlike Mayor Dickert Mr. Diehl will have others like it or not come to his aid, my guess is City Union Members will help in some way, information Dickert like kept on the Q.T. will given to others best able to use it.
The Big thing is: THE RICO CASE
By Winter should be in Discovery who knows what information comes out or maybe just maybe what happens if Mayor Dickert is charged in a Federal Court under RICO?
I must say this it will be a very very nasty race unlike any we have seen before.
Odds as of Today 8/29/14 Dickert 3:1
