More of Our Money Spent to Make Sure that Spending More of Our Money is a Good Idea

"Art nonprofit to evaluate artist relocation program" -

Now that the city has committed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the artist relocation program in uptown, the time has come to decide wheether or not it is a good idea. So we're gonna spend $12,500 more of our money to hire self-proclaimed "experts" to reassure us that giving $40,000 to a Texas "artist" to flip our city the bird is a wise investment.

No jobs, no chances, no hope for those born here who seek a living, but millions for "artists" and "experts" from out of town.

Party on, lying John!

The ART of spending money foolishly.

It's just outrageous. People literally dying on our streets, but you-know-who wants art, so art it is. Children born in certain areas of Racine are disposable. They have NO chance and never will, but that's OK as long as they don't die in downtown or uptown.

We need to save the $12,500 and post a poll. The answer would be a resounding... NO, certainly not worth it!

Just like in Racine Unified, orbs, if you don't see it, or you don't acknowledge it, it doesn't exist. This actually out of the mouths of one Unified exec when warned about safety and culpability issues... "We get sued everyday!," followed by a coy little laugh.
