Unless your are dead or undead you know that our Mayor John Dickert
is resigning as Mayor to talk the job of executive director for Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative.
details of when he will resign as of 13:00 3/27/17 is not known by this reporter.
I can tell you that reading the form 990 this group Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative, is not a rich group and by my reading of the 990, the last director only received about 110,000 a little less then what Mayor Dickert gets in wages (I will assume The Mayor will be able to get travel, health care paid that adds to the 110K but say another 30K or so)
Stories from the street (how much faith you want to put in them is up to you) is that the news getting out was some what unplanned for catching some but not all in surprise.
I can not help but think that without Dickert’s arm twisting that both the Arena and Machinery Row is like dead for with an special election the City will be able to hold a VOTE to see if the public wants an Arena, with public feelings running very much anti arena this would never pass killing any more spending on what I feel is a Satanic project only serving Mayor Dickert’s ego and lining his pals pockets
Why now vs say when his term ends?
Good question I do not believe at all is the idea that he must act to save the Great Lakes more likely this has much more to do with his getting out as the getting is good:
- The Journal Times reports that the Tax credits for Machinery Row are in trouble http://journaltimes.com/news/local/tax-credits-for-machinery-row-project-in-doubt/article_c7da9df4-e333-5c01-a665-ced928188291.html
- Oh recall the Dickert made Racine a sanctuary city? Guess what Looks like Racine will lose a bunch of money from the feds http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/mar/27/jeff-sessions-says-hell-punish-sanctuaries-cities/ I much rather have police then an Arena. With the Feds going to work and get back past monies how do we repay that since we are all ready in so much debit?
What other Fed money might be in trouble maybe HUD funds? What will Racine do?
Maybe if your Dickert you bail
and If you thought that was interesting I give you this:
The Tick Corry Mason is running for Mayor!
Yes the Carpet Baggier himself Mason is running for Mayor, and you thought things could not get worse well they can!
Mr I love to tax I love to spend your money wants to be Mayor
Very interesting I did not see this turn of events happening.
I believe that Mason have more power in State office vs trying to save Racine from Bankruptcy or in the Tick’s case put us there faster!
Goes to show on any day anything can happen!
