Hello, my cherry blossoms! How are you? Less than a week and March is already here. Can spring be far behind? Like many of you, I like to dig in the soil, too. It’s just that I prefer to do it at night.
Another candidate has thrown her hat into the ring for Racine’s mayor. And quite a circus ring it has become. In light of this information, and the barrage of misinformation that the other candidates will unleash on the unsuspecting public, I have decided to devote more of my blogging to my campaign for mayor.
First, to answer the obvious question, no, I do not believe that voting rights should be denied to those receiving public assistance. I am a strong believer in one man or woman, one vote. I also believe in one animal, one vote. They have to live here, too. And maybe one child, one half vote, but I’m not sure yet. I could work on that during my first term in office.
Second, I’d like to address the question of development in Racine, and whether I am for or against more development locally, and what kind of development I am for or against. To which my resounding response is: of course!
Third: crime. Fourth: against it.
Fifth, taxes, taxes, taxes. Whenever anyone raises the topic of taxes, I say, “No thanks, I’ve had enough.” I strongly believe that the city should use whatever resources it has at its disposal to generate revenue. Why haven’t we been selling bottled Racine Purified Water® all these years? ("Straight from the 'bubbler!'") Why doesn’t the city have its own lottery? Why don’t we have a floating casino in the harbor? That would get the marina and downtown hopping. Why aren’t there video poker machines in City Hall? Why doesn’t the city open its own payday loan stores, muscling the undesirables out of business? Why? Why? Why?
Sixth, education. No thanks, I’ve had enough.
Seventh, jobs, jobs, jobs. Please see my answer to Fifth, taxes, taxes, taxes.
Eighth, moral fortitude. I am Madame Zoltar, the blood that runs in my veins is semi-royal, and thus my character is almost above reproach.
Ninth, vision. Yes, daily, many.
Finally, tenth, where do I see myself 5 years from now? Ha, wouldn’t you like to know? I’ll tell you for 5 bucks.
