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.
My comments will be in blue and red under each item.
- Managed and presented balanced budgets in each year of administration
YAWN…First, it is the duty of the Mayor to do the budget! State law requires a balanced budget and Mayor McCue accomplished the balancing by raising taxes/fees. So this was just putting words together in hopes to fool people that he did something wonderful.
- Received an upgrade in the city’s bond rating due to proper fiscal management
This is one of a few bright spots for Mayor McCue.
AAA is the highest rating and there are three major national bond-rating agencies, Standard & Poor’s, Fitch Ratings, and Moody’s Investors Services
What ratings do other cities have check here.
- Invested in local businesses
Not sure what he is getting at. Sounds good, but what does it exactly mean, I have no idea. TIF, TID, loans, grants, city owned property, what???????
- Advocated for restoration of historic properties in
Another one that sounds good, but what is it exactly? A check of the city’s new website http://www.cudahy-wi.gov/cudahy/home/default.asp I don’t see a historic item. Not sure if this is a feel good item or if there is substance. Remember from part 1 I said this has more questions than answers.
- Held the line on ensuring family supporting jobs for
- Cleaned up Iceport site, paving the way for a future development
Mayor McCue left out with taxpayer money! It is premature to say it is cleaned up. The footings are still in and the land is still contaminated. Another shotty McCue bullet point that is vague or not completely true! The city taxpayers are on the hook for the land and cleanup not some developer. Gee thanks Mayor McCue for using our tax dollars to do that!!!!
I would like to point out something a reader informed me of. Many of the signs in support of Mayor McCue are on vacant lots and rental properties. Many of the rental properties signs have been disappearing. I am not sure, if the landowner is telling the renter to pull the sign or if someone is stealing the signs. It is against the law and wrong to steal a sign, so please don’t do it!
