City assessor appointed to also lead City Developmen

\RACINE — Instead of conducting a national search for a City Development Director, City Assessor Bill Bowers has been promoted to head both the assessor’s office and city development.

Bowers, who has been with the city since 2014, was appointed by Mayor Cory Mason into a new dual role as both City Assessor and Director of City Development at the City Council meeting on Wednesday.
Alderman Henry Perez asked if it was too much to ask Bowers to head both departments and whether the pay scale granted is commensurate to his responsibilities, “because they’re both huge responsibilities.”
Bowers said there is a good deal of overlap between the two departments.
“I think there’s a synergy between the two where the sum of the parts will actually get more done because of the efficiencies we have,” Bowers said.
Bowers is talking BS.  This is his reward for massively low-balling the assessment on McMayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason's home.  Racine's government is a corrupt pigsty.

Great point about Butterballs taxes.
When does the protest start?
