Phase IV of the New Now

indexstp

Well normally I wait for the same folks who claim the same things to spin about the cesspool of Racine and again get nothing done.

However I got no time for that, got things to do and places to go, you do too!

Best do any of us have the time to spend on the haters and their hate of everything most of all God Save you if you do not hate along side them every step of the way.

Can’t speak for you but I do not there is a lot of information to gather on the strange world this perhaps the most corrupt city in the Midwest if not the whole 50 States.

This information can be gathered and shared in a way that is ethical and more critical not filled with hate.

Best, far better ways to get these stories out then just waiting for eyeballs to come across a Web Page or a post to Facebook.

In fact the steps I have started to undertake will allow me access to a wide readership and resources from editing to legal aid in obtaining Open Records

Others have the same ability to do this but as I see it, far easier to hate then anything else

So I will be creating a new site to do this that.

As much as I still be writhing about the corruption is S.E. Wisconsin, I am also planing to write on efforts to fix this area of Wisconsin

I will also be cutting ties with the Equality Project of Racine, They do not speak for me nor I for them.

Ethics Board 3/31/14

The Board meeting was nothing to write home about just how the hearing of evidence will be handled  in the next hearing the first week in May. The Hearing will be closed to the public unless Mary Osterman wants it open, however I am told by the City Attorney that the records and documents are PUBLIC RECORD this could prove to be useful to the folks suing the City  with the RICO action.

Far fewer at this (Members of the Public) then the last time no Journal Times  no Real Racine TV

I know I will be called as a witness as will members of the City Cable Commission and staff of Belle City TV with records being asked for like I said the records will be public records after the hearing is over may be very useful to the RICO folks.

The big event this morning was when Mr. Spodick, Scott  Nelson, and I are walking down the hall to leave City Hall and down the West Steps is Mayor John Dickert   who starts I will call verbally attacking Mr. Spodick about Back Taxes this goes on for about say 2 minutes as he leaves the building.

We wait inside until we know the Mayor has left the Parking lot.  We thought be best to just let him yell and walk away from anytime of conflict

Wowser! The Mayor feels he can yell at members of the Public when he feels like it? Is this something we should expect from our Mayor?

Might the Mayor of Racine feel the pressure of the RICO action? The Ethics Hearing over CAR 25?  Is stress getting to the point of our Mayor needing to seek treatment over said issues? That be sad if stress got to the point of the Mayor not say yelling at someone he may not like to say punching someone out. Now that be a lawsuit! tumblr_n2l3tzYzb61spj0ojo1_1280

CITY OF RACINE PUSHES FORMAL ETHICS COMPLAINT OF MARY OSTERMAN…

CITY OF RACINE PUSHES FORMAL ETHICS COMPLAINT OF MARY OSTERMAN TO CABLE COMMISSION, WHICH MARY OSTERMAN (THE ACCUSED) IS A MEMBER!!!!!!! AND ALSO THE SECRETARY!!!!

ALL THIS WAS DONE PRIOR TO ANY ACTION OR DISCUSSION BY THE CITY OF RACINE ETHICS BOARD!!! THE COMMUNITY IS ASKING QUESTIONS AS TO THE PROCEDURE USED, AND JUST HOW A FORMAL ETHICS COMPLAINT COULD BE DISCUSSED IN A CITY CABLE MEETING WITH THE PERSON BEING ACCUSED IN THE COMPLAINT, WITHOUT IT GOING TO THE ETHICS BOARD FIRST?

HOW DID IT GET ON THE CABLE COMMSSION AGENDA? WHY WAS IT DISCUSSED NOT ONLY WITH THE ACCUSED, BUT WITH THE OTHER CABLE COMMSSIONERS AND THE PUBLIC? WHY WAS MARY OSTERMAN TOLD BY ALDERMAN RON HART “DON’T WORRY ABOUT THIS, NOTHING IS GOING TO COME OF THIS” THE CABLE COMMISSION CHAIRMAN RON THOMAS ADMITS MARY OSTERMAN WAS GIVEN FREE CITY PRODUCTION AND FREE CITY ADVERTISING, WHILE COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND RESIDENTS ARE FORCED TO PAY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS! CHAIRMAN RON THOMAS GOES ON TO SAY OSTERMAN DESERVES THIS BECAUSE SHE HAS DONE SO MUCH DOWNTOWN RACINE WITH HER HAT BUSINESS. ALDERMAN RAY DEHAHN GOES ON TO SAY HE BELIEVES THIS IS UNFAIR.

PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO, AS THE CABLE COMMISSION ATTEMPTS TO COVER-UP THE ALLEGATIONS AND COMPLAINT.

 

Then we have this headline From the Racine Journal Times  http://journaltimes.com/news/local/board-finds-probable-cause-in-belletv-complaint/article_c463b8ca-af5b-11e3-af89-0019bb2963f4.html   3/19/14

Board finds probable cause in BelleTV complaint

Quite the story and its not over yet.

Best of all it was not the local paper who discovered what was going on and raised hell but just folk, as much as I filed the paperwork others helped by looking up information and answering questions I had.

We have a ways to go with this story and its not done yet. I have no idea what the outcome will be for all I know the Board will find nothing wrong or perhaps  OSTERMAN quits the Cable Commission that may end things I have no idea what will happen.

However I must focus my attention to the Root River and the plan of the City of Racine called Rootworks   in just the last few days and hours information has come my way that will IMHO make (Ethics issues/  OSTERMAN) this seem like look like child’s play.

So I will not be posting so much here but on my other blog called Root River Revitalization   http://rootriverrevitalization.wordpress.com/   to cover that.

 

 

Games with the City of Racine

Roomer Room

As I understand things Open Records laws exist to ensure the Goverment is transparent and the sweet deals  perhaps illegal deals can be exposed and dealt  with, when we add to than the idea of no one is above the law we have hope of seeing what is behind the curtain.

After I received info from a source on Belle City TV I sent this request into the City of Racine

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

Thank You

This was sent to the City Clerk and City Administrator. The same day or the next, I got an Email from the City that due to the number of of FOI requests it be longer then 10 days to fill.

Its now 1/9/14 by my count 22 Business days.

So I send a follow up email asking about the delay, lets see what the City saids

Why so long? Simply a shortage of manpower or what? What could the city be trying to hide?

might it be?

Number of Producers creating content is close to 0?

That there have been no ad sales? That be followed up with  if no ads where sold how did an ad (as I would describe it) by Copasetic get on Belle City TV? That may open up a whole line of issues.

With a member of the cable commission running for Alderman, issues that may be embarrassing to the City of Racine.

But wait there is more!  Think Bulkhead lines and locations of such in writing. Are the maps there or missing?

Next on…..
