Yes one again the Equality Project is going to the Racine Ethics Board. You know that is filled with Mayor Dickert supporters known pals who work/worked on his campaign
Both Link Murphy and Doug Nicholson sit on the Ethics Board the Chair is Mary Wyant who does legal work (or her firm does) for the person we are bring up on Ethics Mary Osterman for actions she took as she sat and still sets on the City of Racine Ethics board.
The action was filed on Thursday 2/7/2014 and other then this email:
I am in receipt of your Ethics Complaint which was filed on 2-6-2014 with the City Clerk’s Office. You do not need to make copies for the members. I will be forwarding your complaint to the Chairman and she will advise me of how she wishes this to be handled.
Mind you I will be writing an Email to the char asking that she and Mr. Murphy and Nicholson recuse themselves from any thing to do with this since Oserman worked as well on Mayor Dickers Campaign and I will find it hard to think they can be unbiased
My guess is that they will not and I then will see what action I can take if only in the field of Public Opinion. You know show the city of Racine how I feel the Mayor’s pals protect him.
After this was field with the City. Copies were also given to the Journal Times WRJN and to my good friend The Mayor of the City of Racine.
My guess is even with the info we have the Ethics board will see nothing wrong.
I believe folks in the City of Racine,Racine County, and the State of Wisconsin may think that in Racine WI petty corruption rules the day.
This is Racine after all. You know the City takes down the Streetlights and the Mayor goes to Mexico on your dime. Does your ass hurt?
Working on getting the documents posted
Wait as part of this as you may know I asked for a list of documents that I should be able to receive via open records
