This blog on the Insider News site intrigued me: http://racineinsider.blogspot.com/2009/04/what-did-alderman-know-about-backroom.html.
At 19 seconds into his YouTube campaign video, Greg Helding states, "I'll end the backroom deals, and bring full transparency and accountability to city government."
As the Insider News blog asks, WHAT backroom deals is Mr. Helding referring to? Why hasn't he or any of the other aldermen running for mayor mentioned these deals before? Why haven't they stepped up to stop such illegal actions on the part of city government during their years in office? They have been part of the wheeling and dealing at City Hall since the beginning of Becker's terms.
The politics and corruption in this city are filthy and disgusting. These are Racine's "leaders," our elected representatives: lying weasels.
Party on, Racine! The Beckerphile will be back in 2011, restored to his full majesty and glory.
