Getting hot in Mount Pleasant

From the Journal Times 2/14/16

Seeing this in today’s paper shows me how hot events are getting in Mt Pleasant over HWY V issues

I coped the letter below as elected officials need to be held to account for this sort of behavior the letter below bold highlights mine :


As a Mount Pleasant Trustee who has observed both in action, I’m giving my highest endorsement to Anna Marie Clausen and Rick McCluskey in their re-election bids.

Both incumbent trustees have been superb public servants. They have demonstrated no personal agendas, have stayed humble and possess the vision necessary to keep our Village moving forward. Big-picture independent thinkers with level heads — the exact attributes needed for Village leadership. Losing them would be tragic, indeed. It would set the Village back 20 years.

Their many challengers, by stark contrast, are angry and single-issue focused. Both are terrible attributes for decision-making, not only at the board level, but at committee levels as well. That’s why their earlier attempts to gain appointments to committees were wisely rejected. They’ve only become increasingly more shrill, belligerent and abusive towards the board and village staff. Bereft of any vision, one only has to look at the personal attacks plastered in this very newspaper, along with their campaign sites and materials to see for yourself. They are attempting to flood the zone, so to speak, and take out our leadership with a primary challenge.

The benefits of water and sewer opening up new areas are many and obvious, not only to existing residents, but for future growth as well.

So let’s re-elect Clausen and McCluskey Feb. 16 and April 5, and flush the Highway V-gang and their crappy attitudes down the shiny new sewer heading their way.

David DeGroot, Trustee

Mount Pleasant


I can only believe that Mr. DaGroot is seeing writing on the wall suggesting that the two he lists will be beat perhaps in the primary.

This would cause quite the issues with this project and again as I have said in my podcast end this all up in Court.

Again as I have said maybe causing others to lose $$ in developing Farm Land that could be obtained if/when the water project happens

Another loser be the City of Racine who would be selling Water to this area, we all know how badly The City of Racine needs every penny.


For the record I believe my coping the letter as it was printed in the Journal Times is covered by Fair Use  as allowed by law.

Elections matter please vote as you see fit to do, know to folks in Mount Pleasant what Mr. Degroot thinks of you
