Why you should support Justin Wheeler

My name is Justin Wheeler and I am running for Mayor of Racine, WI in the upcoming special election.

  I was born in this city. I was raised here by my phenomenal parents Allan and Terri. My father has served Racine as a city employee for over 35 years.

  I've worked for and in the city, and have a detailed understanding of the day to day operations of city departments and our common council.

  My campaign is all about the individuals in our city. We're putting the power back in your hands. No more shady backroom deals and lies to the public.

Transparency and integrity will be the foundation of everything my administration does. 

  I'm focused on job opportunities and saving money for our citizens.

  Technology is our biggest asset in retooling our local economy. 

  My administration will invest in high speed internet for our city. Cities such as Chattanooga, TN attracted a large number of tech based companies by installing high speed fiber-optic connections throughout the city. They've seen abandoned factories replaced with new 21st century industry. They created 1000 new, quality jobs in just two years.

  As a journalist and business owner I've seen struggles and successes from a plethora of perspectives in our community.

  Too often local government gets in the way of its people. Local regulations cripple growth and wasteful spending burdens our budget.

  Privileged career politicians spend our resources paying off political favors and positioning themselves for their next pay day, usually on the taxpayers' dime.

  Our city is over 100 million dollars in debt. Instead of changing our spending, our leaders voted to raise the debt ceiling. This is not fiscal responsibility. 32 cents of every tax dollar is spent on debt. We’re losing street lights, our roads are falling apart.

  Remember the guy that told us he would make Racine a top 10 city in 10 years? He introduced Cory Mason at a goodbye press conference as Racine’s next mayor.

  Liars are the worst, but we have to move forward.

  Do you want the legacy of the last 10 years to continue with a hand-picked successor or do you want an original thinker who includes citizens in action?

  Mason claims to be running a “grassroots” campaign. He’s holding fundraisers 100 miles from our city in Madison, WI. Endorsements from career politicians in Madison and around the country for a local position is comically disconnected from anything grassroots.

  We have to redefine success in Racine. Right now too many people here make a little money and leave. Let’s make it a real possibility to learn and grow and stay right here.

  I graduated from school with no debt. I earned a national Edward R. Murrow Award for my journalistic efforts in college. I started my first business at the age of 23 and turned a profit within the first year of operation.

  My technology plan is endorsed by the first commercial Internet Service Provider in the state of Wisconsin, and the co-founder of the world’s first global social network.

  Wise minds told me to be the change you want to see. Let’s turn our identity from rust belt to brain belt. Let’s bring jobs from I-94 into the city. Let’s rebuild Racine.

  If you'd like to see a fresh approach to new opportunity for Racine, to stopping crony capitalism, and ending the lies we're told by our leaders, consider donating to our campaign.

Your friend, your fellow citizen, and with great hope, your next Mayor,

Justin Wheeler

    “I endorse candidate for Racine Mayor Justin Wheeler because he has spoke out about the corruption in Racine politics. It appears Justin has experienced the foul taste of the corrupt Lying John Dickert Administration. Justin is willing to talk about it and move a political platform to clean it up. And thanks RCC for giving this kid an opportunity to be exposed on an honest site that discusses real issues and concerns in Racine County. https://www.crowdpac.com/campaigns/302223/im-going-to-end-political-corruption-in-racine-wi http://racinecountycorruption.blogspot.com/”
