Cudahy Chatter - March

Chatter, Cudahy, Info

This items can be considered rumors, gossip, street talk, the word or they could be true.  Only time will tell!

 

The School referendum will narrowly pass and I don’t want to hear people complain about Cudahy’s high taxes because the roofs could have been replaced using state and federal grants for solar power at schools or the money could have come from the schools operating budget.

Special Events Committee

Cudahy, Holiday, Kids, Leadership, Local Government

Instead of just focusing on the 4th of July with a committee, I think the Cudahy committee’s name and purpose needs to change and evolve to the Special Events Committee.

 

Changing to the Special Events Committee would allow that committee to work on Halloween, Christmas, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day and July 4th.  There is much more than just the 4th of July to do.

Guest Blog On South Milwaukee Fire Chief

Guest Blog, South Milwaukee

I would like to suggest my article below concerning the headhunting safari for South Milwaukee Fire Chief Jay Behling.
 
Enough is enough.  South Milwaukee Fire Chief Jay Behling has sufficiently apologized...leave it alone, South Milwaukee and our National Hate Organizations!!!
 
When Presidential candidates, Senators, Congressmen, and other politicians are caught in a faux pas of this nature, their apology was accepted and we moved on.  Why should this be any different in South Milwaukee?
 
There are individuals and organizations in this country who are "off the hook" on "ethnic slurs".  Their motives are a deep-seated hate for "whitey" and they are a greater disservice to our nation than the people who say things in frustration that they regret.  
 
Take about double standards!!!

Some people have asked me to participate in doing things in the city.  Some don’t think that my blogs and the time that goes in, are enough. 

 

Please remember, I don’t get paid for this.  I do this because I have a voice and choose to use it.  I don’t hide behind anything!  Not like the childish Oak Creek individual that has taken a point to try and belittle me on my weight.  All that does is shows he is a child!
