RACINE-COST IS NO ISSUE FOR RACINE ALDERMEN AND OFFICIALS WHEN IT COMES TO CITY HALL RENOVATIONS. ALDERMEN APPROVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN CHANGE ORDERS TO THE REMODELING OF CITY HALL.

CHANGE ORDERS ARE BILLS FOR WORK THAT ARE IN EXCESS OF WHAT WAS THE APPROVED BUDGETED AMOUNT. THE TOTAL COST FOR REMODELING CITY HALL IS ESTIMATED IN THE MULTIPLE MILLION DOLLAR RANGE, BUT IN THE CITY OF RACINE, NO ONE REALLY KNOWS WHAT THE EXACT DOLLAR AMOUNT SPENT REALLY IS.

http://journaltimes.com/news/local/additional-for-city-hall-renovations/article_72fccca3-bec8-5ea8-9339-a8fdf887e7a2.html

FACING A $6 MILLION DOLLAR CITY BUDGET SHORTFALL, CITY OF RACINE OFFICIALS CONTINUE THE OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING ON REMEDIAL ITEMS LIKE: 22 GPS UNITS VALUED AT $4,532.00 FOR PARK & REC VEHICLES, 4 RUGGED IPADS FOR PARKS VALUED AT $16,000.00!!!! A $13,217.00 LAWN MOWER, A $6,375.00 FLOOR SCRUBBER, AND OFFICIALS ARE STILL TRYING TO FIX THE FACILTY BLEACHERS WITH AN EXTRA $814.95.

SO, RACINE BROKE? CUTTING POLICE AND FIRE? CUTTING CITY BUS SERVICES? ELIMINATING MORE STREETLIGHTS? RACINE IT WOULD APPEAR, IS HARDLY BROKE.

As for the ridiculous $200,000 entryway roof replacement for Festival Hall, the 2014 budget makes it clear that the Civic Centre has Expenditures of $889,750 and Revenues of $611,750, for a staggering loss of $278,000. Worse yet is the fact that the majority of the Revenue is from property taxes paid by residents, $326,750;  borrowing through the issuance of bonds, $250,000, which must be repaid by taxpayers with debt; and the Room Tax, $35,000 which increases the cost of visiting and staying in Racine, thus discouraging tourism.

While Mayor John Dickert turns off and removes streetlights, cuts services, increases Recycling Fees (which were supposed to have gone away), seeks a Water and Sewer rate increase, and increases property taxes every year, in 2014 The Civic Centre Commission is planning on spending $50,000 on an interior redesign of Festival Hall, $45,000 on vinyl tent side spans, $25,000 on picnic tables, and $20,000 on pipe & drapes, tables, and carts.

MEANWHILE CITY HALL OFFICIALS, WHO JUST RECENTLY REVEALED THE CITY OF RACINE IS FACING A $4.3 MILLION DOLLAR SHORTFALL FOR 2015, ARE NOW CLAIMING THAT RACINE IS HONESTLY FACING A $6 MILLION DOLLAR CITY BUDGET DEFICIT!! INTERESTINGLY, IN THE CITY POWERPOINT SLIDE ABOVE, THE 2015 ESTIMATE WAS A $4.6 MILLION DOLLAR SHORTFALL FOR 2015.

DO CITY OF RACINE OFFICIALS HAVE ANY IDEA AT ALL HOW MUCH OF A DEFICIT THE RACINE TAXPAYERS WILL FACE IN 2015? OR ARE SOME STILL LYING AND CHEATING?

IS MAYOR JOHN DICKERT, JUST ONE BIG LIE?

RACINE- ALDERWOMAN SANDY WEIDNER HAS HAD ENOUGH OF MAYOR JOHN DICKERT’S CONSTANT LYING TO THE PUBLIC AND CALLS HIM A “BALD FACED LIAR” ON RACINE RADIO WRJN. ” YOU’RE BALD FACE LYING, AND IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME!!!! I’M CALLING YOU ON THE LIES YOUR TELLING!” ALDERWOMAN SANDY WEIDNER ALSO GOES ON TO SAY, “YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PUBLIC HEARING AND A CLOSED SESSION!!!”  (LINK PROVIDED BELOW)

MOST OF DICKERT’S LIE’S SEEM TO BE CENTERED AROUND ROOTWORKS AND THE PROCESS USED. ALDERMAN EDDIE DIEHL HAS ALSO BEEN VERY TROUBLED BY THE ENTIRE PROCESS USED, AND HAS VOICED HIS DISPLEASURE MORE THAN ONCE.

IT ALSO BRINGS US BACK TO CAR25 AND THE MAYOR’S LYING TO THE COMMUNITY IN REGARDS TO THE CITY CONTRACT, CITY STAFF AND THE PROCEDURES USED.

ALDERWOMAN WEIDNER ALSO CONTINUES TO ASK QUESTIONS AND CALL THE MAYOR OUT ON HIS LIES AT THE RACINE COMMON COUNCIL MEETING ON MONDAY AUGUST 4TH. WATCH FOR YOURSELVES AT THE LINK BELOW.

ALDERWOMAN SANDY WEIDNER HAS GAINED, AND CONTINUES TO GAIN, A LARGE FOLLOWING OF SUPPORT FROM RACINE FAMILIES AND RESIDENTS WHO WANT TO SEE TRUTH, JUSTICE AND FAIRNESS AS A PART OF THE RACINE COMMUNITY. THERE ARE MEETINGS PLANNED AND TALK OF OFFICIAL COMMUNICATIONS BEING SUBMITTED ASKING FOR THE MAYOR’S REMOVAL FROM OFFICE. PLEASE STAY TUNED AND “SAVE RACINE”

RACINE- ALDERWOMAN SANDY WEIDNER STANDS TALL AND CALLS OUT RACINE MAYOR JOHN DICKERT FOR LYING TO THE PUBLIC ON LOCAL RADIO STATION WRJN,  ALD. WEIDNER ASKS THE MAYOR, “HOW MUCH HAVE YOUR LIES COST THE RESIDENTS OF RACINE THUS FAR????!!!!”

ALDERWOMAN WEIDNER ECHOES THE THOUGHTS AND CONCERNS OF OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS AND MANY RACINE FAMILIES AND RESIDENTS, IN REGARDS TO QUESTIONABLE PRACTICES WITH MAYOR DICKERT AND OTHERS AT CITY HALL.  QUESTIONS REGARDING MONEY, STAFFING AND SOME OF THE PROCESSES USED TO OBTAIN CITY CONTRACTS, REMAIN UNANSWERED AND SOME DOLLARS MIGHT NOT BE ADDING UP. THINGS SUCH AS,  ROOTWORKS, CAR25, PORTERS, CITY HALL REAL ESTATE DEALS, ETC.

RESIDENTS AND ALDERMEN HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR INFORMATION AND REQUESTING OPEN RECORDS REGARDING THE PRACTICES AND METHODS USED BY MAYOR DICKERT AND CITY HALL, AND HAVING TREMENDOUS DIFFICULTY GETTING ANSWERS TO SIMPLE QUESTIONS. ALDERWOMAN SANDY WEIDNER HAS HAD ENOUGH.

ALSO, CLAIMS OF CITY HALL TAKING MONTHS TO DEAL WITH THE MOST SIMPLE OF REQUESTS FOR INFORMATION ON BEHALF OF RESIDENTS, CONTINUES, AND A FEW ALDERMEN HAVE PUBLICLY CLAIMED THEIR FRUSTRATIONS WITH THE MAYOR AND CITY HALL, WITH PROVIDING INFORMATION THAT THEY HAVE REQUESTED.

LACK OF TRANSPARENCY AND LACK OF INFORMATION FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND RESIDENTS ALIKE, SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED. ALDERMEN AND RESIDENTS ARE STANDING UP AND SAYING ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. STAND TOGETHER & SAVE RACINE!
