New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government (NBCRG) President Ralph Heun spouted lots of nonsense in the NBCRG March 7 blog entry. See my previous blog entry titled NBCRG Spin and Blunders.
In that March 7 NBCRG blog post, Ralph Heun complained that citizens and civic groups cannot use City Hall. He bemoaned the “short-sighted policy that has kept election forums, Christmas and July 4 parades and other events from being televised”--and he blamed Alderman Bill Moore for it. He accused Ald. Moore of being a prime instigator in passing an ordinance two years ago that prohibited any non-city group from using City Hall/or City Channel 25 for any purposes. What a distortion of facts! Actually, in 2006 Ald. Moore argued against and voted against the restrictive policy/resolution No. 06-11. Furthermore, Ald. Ken Harenda---whom NBCRG has chosen to endorse not only voted in favor of this awful policy/resolution that Heun has complained so bitterly about, he made the motion to approve it.
An e-postcard to you.....
Greetings from outside New Berlin. I've been in Florida since Sunday, April 6, visiting some family members and taking a break from regular routine and blogging. I'm hoping the sunshine and warmer weather here will facilitate recovery from the influenza, health problems and complications I've been struggling with during these last two months. The Sunshine State is a great vacation and recreation spot. A fun place to visit. However, there's no place like home.
Now that I'm back from my Florida trip, in my spare time I've been trying to catch up on the local news. One news item stood out from the rest --the announcement of an agreement on the Great Lakes compact.
