Mayor Dickert is the focus of s story on the Racine Post: http://news.racinepost.com/2009/08/positively-draft.html. The story states that the mayor wants us to be positive about Racine. I believe that this is a worthy cause, but it is impossible for me to get behind a liar. You never know what a liar is going to say or do. Dickert lied to us about the city administrator's position during his campaign. He lied about a 10 year plan for Racine. A couple of weeks after taking office, he held a fundraiser for his re-election campaign. Then he met behind closed doors to install an unqualified Becker crony and confidant into the city administrator's position (which he said we didn't need) at an unheard of salary for an unheard of 6 years. Then he jets off to Rhode Island claiming that his tax-paid jaunts around the country will get jobs for Racine. (Gee, does that sound like some other recent mayor, hmm?) Meanwhile, NO jobs have turned up for Racine, but the mayor and his cronies are doing just fine, thank you.
I am so sick and tired of politicians telling us, the residents of Racine, that we have to get behind and support their lies, or we are being negative or whiners or whatever.
I will be positive about Racine when you STOP LYING TO US!
I will be positive about Racine when you represent ALL OF RACINE and not just DRC/RAMAC/J-Wax.
Pig politicians oinking and oinking and oinking about Racine is NOT POSITIVE - it's just the usual PIGS out for glory and more slop.
