The DC Mind, Racine Version

This story has all the elements....

Pamela Bogan is ready to start her new candy store called The Mini Shop, but some are sour about parts of the building. Some aren't happy with the bars she put on the windows.

Racine Mayor John Dickert says, "It's about where we're going in Racine and if we're going to go back to bars on window, I think we're going in the wrong direction."

Despite nearby businesses keeping their grates, Mayor Dickert says the city for years has not allowed businesses with new zoning to put up or keep bars on their windows.

The building's owner states that there have been several break-ins; the store owner is concerned.   Imagine that!  She wants to preserve her store......

It gets better.

Bogan says, "By me being a first time business owner, and I'm black, I feel like that's what's playing a role in this."

The Mayor of Racine denies that allegation.

Someone needs to ask the Mayor if he hates the security bars sooooo much......why are there security bars on the city hall building first floor windows?

Typical Democrat, what's good for me not for thee.

Sounds like the Mayor is another part of the problem down there.
