Oh the Insanity

Am I the only person who is wondering what in the world is taking place in our local government right now?

Kenosha Unified is proudly announcing that they have unanimously approved the sale of Lincoln Elementary School to the city of Kenosha.

Kenosha News

The city of Kenosha would then proudly rent the new acquired building to Kenosha School of Enhanced Technology Curriculum for $30,000 a year. This is a way to get permanent building to KTEC.

Kenosha Unified and all of its building and land is owned by the taxpayers of Kenosha

The Municipality of Kenosha (the city) and all of its buildings and land is owned by the taxpayers of Kenosha

KTEC is another government agency bought and paid for by the taxpayers of Kenosha.

So follow this logic:

We are going to take a building that we already own as taxpayers, Lincoln Elementary, and sell that building to the city.

The city is we, the taxpayers. The city owns nothing, taxpayers own it all.

So as taxpayers, we are purchasing Lincoln Elementary, a building we already own.

We are then going to take the building, Lincoln Elementary, that we already own now twice over and lease that building KTEC- a school system that is currently paid for by the taxpayers for the low, low price of $30,000 a year.

Taxpayers are being told that we are taking a taxpayer owned building, and selling the taxpayer owned building back to the taxpayers that already own it and the taxpayers will have to pay for it again. Then we get to lease a building that we already own twice now for $30,000 a year.

Sound totally insane?

That is because it is.

This is one gigantic scam by Kenosha government against Kenosha’s taxpayers.

You take Lincoln Elementary and give it to KTEC for a permanent home.

It is just that simple.
