Secret Court Proponent Mayor Cory Mason

Dear City of Racine Alderpersons, 
From Racine County Corruption: 
Outrageous conduct by city officials is no secret! 
Secret surveys, secret meetings, secret government and secret courts are 
Mayor Cory Mason and city attorney Scott Letteney's legacy. 
 In the open records case of Weidner vs. City of Racine, Racine 
Circuit Court case # 2017CV1644, the paranoia of Letteney and Mason 
are illuminated by the City's ridiculous claims of "Talking Racine" 
producer Jim Spodick and panelist George Meyers 
being labeled as a danger to the community. 
This paranoia is so embedded into city government that Alderman Sandy 
Weidner wrongfully endured for over 7 months the darkness of a secret 
court for performing her duties as a city alderman.  City of Racine 
attorney Scott Letteney filed frivolous documents and abused claims of 
attorney privileges into a secret and complicit court. 
During these court proceedings, Mayor Cory Mason's silence was and 
still is deafening. 
The Mayor cannot deny his involvement in this outrageous secret court case. 
Under Wisconsin Statutes 62.09(1),(8)(a)   " The mayor shall be the 
chief executive officer. The mayor shall take care that city 
ordinances and state laws are observed and enforced and that all city 
officers and employees discharge their duties".  (emphasis added) 
Mayor Mason's knowledge of the Machinery Row scandal is well 
documented which involves straw man purchase Rodney Blackwell. 
Taxpayer money was misappropriated and squandered without public 
scrutiny and accountability.  The city acted as scofflaws as active 
businesses were disrupted and forced to relocate without compensation 
or due process. 
Mason further commissioned a police morale survey in a most deviant 
way, undermining and circumventing established checks and balances 
within government.  These checks and balances are in place to prevent 
officials acting maliciously, or on a whim squandering public funds. 
Mason hired the law firm by the hour to avoid the scrutiny of the city 
council .  The Racine Journal Times has reported cost of $118,000 and 
rising for the survey. Despite the public paying for the report, Mason 
has denied the public the right to be informed of the contents of the 
Why? because it is a secret! 
You may read more here: 
What else is Mason hiding ? How about the hiring of a city applicant 
who failed preliminary pre hire drug screening and kept that failed 
test information secret from the city council. 
It is all in the secret, redacted court records. 
Secrets secrets and more secrets. 
Mason's use and abuse of the powers of the city attorney's office to 
act as henchmen silencing his critics is beyond outrageous,  Mason has 
created a tyrannical empire of secrecy which by design ignores 
citizen's rights and impedes upon a free society 
right to be informed. 
As city attorney, Scott Letteney's management of open records request 
is also beyond outrageous. Mr. Letteney's office by design is derelict 
of it's official duties to properly respond to records request.  His 
office systematically delays, denies and defers open records requests 
for months on end, ignoring and flaunting the laws that govern timely 
and reasonable response times. 
The question was asked earlier: 
But who is working for who ? 
Well the answer is neither Mason nor Letteney are working on the 
behalf of public interest. 
SO - who are Mason and Letteney actually representing? 
General Incompetence and Malfeasance reigns supreme in the disorderly 
Racine City Hall ruled by horribly incompetent elect Mayor Cory Mason 
- and his 4 overpaid and unnecessary co-horts hiding in the City 
Administration Office. 
It is well past time to rectify the situation and do the right action 
for City of Racine Taxpayers. In addition, pursue criminal charges 
against Malfeasant Officials - and demand  restitution to make 
Taxpayers whole again. 
It is glaringly obvious that City of Racine can now *FIRE* 3 
unnecessary positions from the 5 currently ensconced in the Mayor's 
Office - begin wage and compensation decreases  - to better match that 
of 3rd World Nations, and emerging economies, and.... 
*FIRE* Glaringly Incompetent City Attorney Scott  Letteney and his 
entire incompetent and seemingly malfeasant staff. When public records 
are made secret - Racine Residents are being ruled by mentally ill 
*FIRE* Glaringly Incompetent City Administrator (Profit? Loss? 
Revenue? Expense? - what's the difference) Nick Palenick - who is 
completely lost to the basics of a balance sheet. 
*RESIGN* Cory! Who ran for Mayor but believed he couldn't do the job 
so he demanded two more in the Mayor's Office - 3+2 = 5. THIS IS 
*FREE* Sandy! STOP the HATE! End the oppression of a courageous 
Alderperson who performed her role with diligence, respect for the 
rule of law, and utmost consideration for her constituents.
