The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Common Council Meeting Today

Alderperson, Cudahy, Development, Common Council, Mayor, Tony Day, Packard Plaza

Further below is the meeting agenda.  As you all look at, notice Mayor Day is going to give updates to Packard Plaza.  So do you think if I didn’t make this a big point and it wasn’t an election year he would be talking about it?

 

Now, 2.75 years into his term, now he wants to talk about it.  Amazing that the competition is finally getting him going.

 

Amazing though, that it takes some competition and blog pressure to get something done, or attempted to by Mayor Day. 

 

(Whoa horsey – you just had two fragmented sentences above – whoa!)

 

What would he do if he wins and the pressure goes away, sit around again? 

 

I think so.

 

Supervisor Inspection Ordinance going to Personnel and the Council on Tuesday

 

I wonder about this ordinance for a supervisor to review plumbing inspection and plan submittal.  I wonder WHAT WENT WRONG or happen, to bring this up. 

 

Why do we need an Ordinance specific to this?  To the best of my knowledge, we don't have Supervisor Ordinances for Police, Fire, Public Works, Engineering, etc.  Something went wrong to bring this up.

 

See folks, even when the agenda is in the public, if no one explains to us what is going, how will we know?

 

Hiding stuff in plain sight by not explaining.  Where are the alderpersons to explain to their constituents?  Has anyone heard from their alderperson about these things?

 

It is the how, why, where, and when?  If we don’t ask questions and stay silent they think everything is just A-Okay.  Is it?

 

Folks, did you see that the finance committee is meeting to discuss a Federal Civil Suit by Smithfield foods, Patrick Cudahy’s parent company?  This is speculation - If our largest employer is going after the city that should be front page news, right? 

 

Any word on that one? 

 

Yes, yes, I know it is in closed session!  However, if you didn’t check the agenda would you know?  Should you care?  Does it matter to you?
