During his privilege of the floor speech at a hearing/city government meeting held at New Berlin City Hall in November 2008, Ralph Heun referred to himself as representing New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government.
He then went on to say: "We seem to be the last political action group in our area."
New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government (NBCRG) has been around since 2002.
We Care New Berlin has been registered with the City of New Berlin as a political action group since October 1, 2007.
We Care New Berlin supported a candidate in the 2008 elections, Alderman Bill Moore. Bill Moore won. Heun's New Berlin Citizens for Responsible Government group had supported Moore's opponent, JJ Blonien in that race.
We Care New Berlin and NBCRG have been filing campaign reports regularly with the City Clerk. Those reports are public records and are easily accessible at City Hall.
Both political action groups have filed as independent committees when supporting candidates for election.
We Care New Berlin has endorsed candidates in the April 2009 election. So has NBCRG.
Hopefully, the information contained in this blog entry clarifies matters for anyone who may have been misled by Ralph Heun's public statement.
