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.

Cudahy Follow-ups and Other Things

Cudahy, DPW, Brookfield, GAB, Mark Otto, Mary Jo Lange, Mayor, McCue, Taxes, Tony Day

Remember how a few people like Mike the Dead President who thinks I don’t know what I am talking about and am misinformed.


Please note from the February 3rd Personnel Meeting Item #4.         


Discussion and necessary action regarding request from Public works employee for an extension on the residency requirement.


This was action from here: Email I Sent to Cudahy Director of Public Works/City Engineer Mary Jo Lange January 9th where I ask:


Also, I am hearing you approved a DPW hire beyond the rule for 124th street and he is from Muskego?  It didn't go to the personnel committee?


Yep, got that one wrong didn’t I?  I was totally uninformed or misinformed.


Edit – from what I hear, he doesn’t want to move and has a good case to take to court costing us more money.  But hey, it is taxpayer money so no problem right!


When is someone going to rein MJL in?




Speaking of Mary Jo Lange – Can she be on another cities commissions, committees, or groups?


What if it is slightly in her field?


Given her position and authority wouldn’t that be a conflict of interest?  She after all does purchase and does have influence over Cudahy.


Then again, maybe that isn’t our Mary Jo Lange from Brookfield.


Don’t worry – nothing that would interest the tabloids.  We cannot even get MJS to cover events in Cudahy.




Now there is a rumor floating around that former Mayor McCue is out as the City Administrator in Wautoma.  Part of the issue is this website and info they have


My name is Ryan P McCue. I was born in 1975. I currently live in

Cudahy, Wisconsin. Before that, I lived in Wautoma, WI from 2011 to

2011. Before that, I lived in Milwaukee, WI from 1999 to 2001.


Now I am hearing that he used the fact that Cudahy came calling and got an extension and more money out of Wautoma – this is not confirmed as also should be treated as a rumor.




Okay, so I received this email and it made me think of hmm…and then okay!




The reason Mayor Day is telling people that he will not respond back to you is because you will not attend meetings or come to his office!


Also, Mayor Day is willing to compromise on the referendum and have a non-binding one and place the decision in the laps of the Common Council.”


Maybe Mayor Day is pulling an early April Fool’s Day joke on us!


I have to laugh at the thought that he WILL NOT respond to me because I am not attending any meetings.  If that is the case, then he is derelict in his job duties as he is Mayor 24/7/365 and 99.9% of the public doesn’t attend the meetings.


One of the duties of an elected official is to answer emails, phone calls, and faxes and return them in a timely manner.  I would send a complaint to GAB, but as we know they are useless.  Look at the Scott Walker and recalls or the McCue signatures at the post office or his illegal campaign signs and you can see just how useless they are.


Furthermore, it is not my job to attend the meetings, but it is my job to go to my 2 real jobs.  This economy has forced me to have two jobs to help support my family and getting to meetings is hard especially when they schedule them at 5:30pm.


I go to meetings when I can!  So to all of you that have had issues with Mayor Day not replying back to emails, if you’re not good enough to go to meetings Mayor Day has no use for you.  Sounds elitist doesn’t it?


Mayor Day makes it sound like he is the principal and I am being sent to the principal’s office.  This guy has a power trip ego issue!!!!


When you govern by fear, you lose all respect of and from those you govern!


Remember - One of the jobs of our elected officials is to field calls and emails from the constituents regarding many issues.


The Reorganization Meetings are a waste, all is known, put it to the voters in a Binding Referendum or drop the issue!!!! 


We will say NO again, just like in the past a few times.


What did Einstein say the definition of insanity was????

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I tried the nicey nice thing for almost two years!  I waited to see him make a difference and all I see is nothing.  And now this power grab and taking away the peoples’ voice!


A non-binding referendum is not a compromise.  The Common Council will just all vote YES as they will feel they will finally get some information and power.


Part of the issue is it circumvents the 3 branches of government and that is wrong.  The other part is the lack of Citizen Voices and that is playing into Day’s hand.  The Council members are either blind to that fact or they just don’t care.


There are none so blind as those who will not see.


This is one of those times where there are only two outcomes:

a)      Drop the plan of changing Cudahy to a Part-Time Mayor

b)      The voters decide if it is to happen in a binding referendum.


But, but Randy if the voters shoot it down then what?  Then you have your answer and can try again in 4 years!


But, but all the other cities in Milwaukee County have them! 


So what!! 


What does that mean? 


So if all the cities hire a Giraffe as their City Mascot we should because all the rest do? 


What are we in High School?  Peer pressure?  Are we independent thinking adults or what?


Invalid argument.  One in a long list of them lately.


If you think Mayor Day is looking out for the residents and taxpayers of Cudahy, you would be so wrong!


Let me be clear – Mayor Day wants it because he only wants to play Mayor and wants to pass the buck to someone else.  He will “stay on” (love that) if it becomes part time since it is hard work and cuts into his family time.


So if Mayor Day isn’t looking out for the residents and taxpayers, who is?  Not the Common Council so far.


Let me be clear – The Common Council wants it because they feel they will have power over the City Administrator and because Mayor Day is another do nothing Mayor they feel the pressure to get someone to do something.  Too bad they just don’t take a symbolic vote of no confidence in Mayor Day!


It is up to you to look out for the residents and taxpayers.


Time to put up or shut up Mayor Day!


Contact Mayor Day and your Alderperson and let them know “No” to the Part-Time Mayor unless it is by binding referendum and the will of the voters!
