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.

VOTE TODAY

2010 Election, Cudahy, Election, Kevin Fech, Mayor, McCue, Tony Day

Today is Wisconsin’s Primary Non-partisan Election

Polls open 7:00am to 8:00pm. 

Anyone in line at 8:00pm must be allowed to vote.

The top two vote-getters advance to the general election, which is April 6.

 

My Choice for Cudahy Municipal Judge is John Dobogai.

 

My Choice for Cudahy Mayor is Kevin Fech.

My wife and I voted this morning at 7:50am and was 12 and 13 respectively.

 

I ask of you people that are on the fence not to vote for Mayor Ryan McCue, but instead vote for Kevin Fech or Tony Day. 

 

 

We need new leadership and a new direction because we don’t currently have leadership or direction.  We are like a ship without a captain, a boat without a rudder and sail, car without wheels and an engine.  Repeatedly, Mayor McCue has shown he puts his own feelings before that of the city and its citizens.  He has shown he has no regard to rules over and over.

 

Send a message and send Ryan McCue home and tell the world enough is enough!

 

Ask yourself if Cudahy is headed in the right direction.  If you think so vote for Ryan McCue.

 

Ask yourself when trying to climb out of a hole do you re-elect the folks who dug the hole in the first place.  If you think so vote for Ryan McCue.

 

Ask yourself is it okay to hold a three year term and work hard only in the last 6 to 9 months of it?  If you think so vote for Ryan McCue.

 

Ask yourself has the current Mayor done the best for Cudahy?  If you think so vote for Ryan McCue.

Economic development drives Cudahy mayoral race

By Tom Kertscher of the Journal Sentinel

 

Cudahy — Two men making their first run for public office say Cudahy isn't keeping and attracting enough businesses, and that is largely why they want to unseat Ryan McCue, the first-term mayor.

 

McCue takes credit for several developments that he notes were accomplished during a recession.

 

McCue will face retired banker Tony Day and Kevin Fech, director of operations for a transportation company, in the Feb. 16 primary.

 

The two with the most votes will advance to the April 6 general election.

 

The mayor is elected to a three-year term and will be paid $64,471 a year.

 

Day said that by announcing his campaign about six months ago, "at least I got Ryan to step up and start doing something" on development.

 

The city in October announced a neighborhood improvement plan to buy and renovate 10 homes.  And last month, the Common Council approved giving up to $57,300 in cash and loans to small businesses to get them to locate on Packard Ave.

 

Both Day and Fech criticized McCue's opposition in 2008 to a Wal-Mart Supercenter that was proposed for the site of the failed Iceport ice-skating rink complex.

 

Day said a referendum should have been held, while Fech accused McCue of "tunnel vision" for not being open to a Wal-Mart.

 

On other matters, Day questioned whether McCue's management techniques are sound, given the number of department heads who have left the city.

 

McCue said three department heads retired and two took higher-level jobs in other communities, and all were replaced by top-flight professionals who are now beginning to jell as a team.

 

Fech said he would benefit from raising a developmentally disabled son, for whom he helped start a special baseball program.

 

"You tend to look at more of the positive that comes out of bad days than you do the negative," he said.

 

Day said he would push economic development by trying to reinstitute community events downtown that helped local businesses, and by seeking out more grants that can help businesses.
