On October 28th, 2020 we all lost a passionate defender of the rights of the citizens of Racine, Carrie Glenn.
Carrie Glenn was an original supporter of H.O.T. Government (Honest Open Transparent Government) at its inception in 2018 the same year she won the 10th District Alderman seat for the City of Racine Common Council. She was a fearless stalwart of principled decisions in government who did not “go along to get along”, rather she supported principled values over pie in the sky tax and spend schemes born on the backs of taxpayers.
Carrie Glenn was a fixture and leader of the Racine Fourth Fest for 15 years participating as a board member. Always excited about and looking forward to the next Fourth Fest. She was equally a voice and activist for the voice of the citizenry over those in city government who do all they can to silence the voice of the citizens to those who govern. She was a strong voice that spoke out against the excesses of the mayor’s office that limited the voice of the people to the Common Council, the excesses of spending by the current City of Racine administration by Mayor Mason, the theft against tax payers and property owners perpetrated by the City of Racine in the “Machinery Row” project.
As to the silencing of the people, Carrie Glenn took exceptional umbrage toward the secret court of Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz in case 2017CV1644, Weidner vs City of Racine. She forced the court open by pounding on the court room doors while Judge Gasiorkiewicz conducted secret proceedings contravening the rights and interests of the citizenry.
H.O.T. Government lost a great and valued supporter of the cause of Honest, Open, and Transparent Government on October 28th, 2020. As Carrie Glenn stated on December 21st, 2019 during her address at the Party on the Promenade mocking the failure of the City of Racine to deliver on the promises of Machinery Row; “Hot Government was formed by concerned citizens like me to find out the truth”.
The people of the City of Racine are the even greater losers in her untimely death. It is the fervent hope of H.O.T. Government that the 10th District will get another Carrie Glenn to take her place on the Common Council. But more so that every Aldermanic District of the City of Racine will get leaders willing to stand up for principled values and decisions rooted in a future for Racine based on what it has to offer today and not unfounded pipe dreams that have been the norm through the last two mayoral administrations of the City of Racine.
From Journal Times:
RACINE — Alderwoman Carrie Glenn is being remembered as a “passionate” and “fearless” public servant following her Wednesday morning passing at 55.
“She was a very strong woman, a very positive person,” recalled her husband of 31 years, Charlie Glenn. “She liked to help people — anybody at any time. She was very passionate about the Fourth of July parade, very passionate about her alderman position. She always tried to do the best she could. She was an amazing, strong person. Even in her passing she was a champion.”
Of his wife’s passing, Charlie said it was “very, very unexpected,” noting it was not COVID-related.
Political newcomer Glenn unseated incumbent District 10 Alderman Dennis Wiser in 2018. A member of the council’s Public Safety and Licensing Committee, Glenn was re-elected to her two-year seat on the Common Council earlier this year, fending off a challenge by Sam Peete, a member of the city’s Planning, Heritage and Design Committee.
“She said she couldn’t complain about politics if she wasn’t involved,” Charlie Glenn recalled. “She wanted to make a difference. That’s why they seemed to bump heads so much on the Council. Carrie was very passionate about what she believed in and what she wanted done.”

From Racine County Corruption:
Rest in Peace Carrie and Thank You for fighting the good fight.
As for me, I have moved out of Racine and now call another place home, devoid of the Criminals who rule Racine/Racine County and who continue to loot, pillage and destroy the productive Residents and Businesses for the benefit of themselves and their chosen friends and family. My blogging has been sporadic and is not up to par with the Racine Exposed days – and I have lost interest and have moved on to a better place where I intend to live, work, play and retire amongst like minded people. Best wishes to those who choose to remain.
