“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; The other is to refuse to accept what is true.                                                                                                                                            – Soren Kierkegaard

While Mayor John Dickert proclaims the City of Racine is broke,  that more funds are needed, and that taxes must be raised beyond reasonable limits – One must stop and ask – IS the City of Racine overpaying for employees? Are salaries and compensation in line with the 21st. C  Global economic reality? How can a resident make a decision if City Hall hides the compensation of employees?

In the spirit that an informed electorate can make a better decision – the entire list of City Employee salaries for 2012 is being published. Remember that the salaries shown don’t include the non-taxed Benefits package that often adds $20,000 – $30,000+ to their compensation.
