The Bright Side

Where, oh where, can the city audit be?
Where, oh where, can it be? With its funds cut short and its spending so high the city is in need of an audit. Where, oh where, can it be?

There is a reason why the residents are being bombarded with so many big and important issues, and that reason is the time needed to cover the city’s financial tracks and redirect funds. Why do you think there has been no 2018 audit and no discussions or comments about the delay or progress on or about the 2018 audit? Why do you think the city’s finances were removed from the city council and shifted over to the finance committee, and now the city treasure is appointed and not elected? Out of sight out of mind. The city paid an audit firm last year to help straighten out the city’s financial mess, but the 2018 audit is silent and hidden in the dark.  There is no question that the zoning and development of the Hillmoor property, changes to the comprehensive plan, remodeling or repurposing of the Riviera, the proposed shutdown of Wrigley Drive and possible lawsuits are major financially impacting issues, but they are covering the big one, the financial take over and control of the city’s millions in revenue by the administrative leadership itself.

From a certain church, two charities and a few people on the wayward side, to those they direct, control and influence, this city is under subtle but powerful control, and as long as one stays inline everything seems fine, unless someone gets in the way, and then the way is suddenly cleared, and that person cleared with it. Several ex-elected and appointed city officials can verify that kind of action. Like a magician’s sleight of hand, it only works if the audience’s attention is focused in another direction, however, until the deception is complete and that is what is being done in Lake Geneva today. The deception is not in what is seen, but in what is not seen, and that’s why a light is being shined right here and right now on the empty spot where the 2018 audit should be but is not. It’s not what you see, but what you don’t see that keeps the truth hidden behind the proverbial curtain, so well illustrated in the Wizard of Oz.  The wizard, in this case, Tom Hartz, shows you what he wants you to see, in order to hide those things he, and even you, might not want to see.
