From The Journal Times.com:
"RACINE — The city’s
police union has sent a letter to Mayor John Dickert expressing dismay
over a proposed raise of more than 30 percent for City Administrator Tom
"Under the mayor’s proposal, Friedel’s current annual
salary of $99,237 would climb to $115,000 on July 13, and then to
$130,000 on July 13, 2016.
“'In light of the "‘financial hardship’"
that the city used last year to leverage an 8 percent reduction in the
compensation of its police officers, we are at a loss as to how such an
extraordinary increase can be justified now for an individual who was
hired at a lower rate of pay back in (2009),' states Todd Hoover, a
criminalist and Racine Police Association president, in the letter.
proposal has caused many RPA members to seriously question the city’s
priorities, and has inspired a great deal of frustration amongst the men
and women who risk their lives to keep our community safe.”

Pissing off his personal army is just another of lying John's mayoral skills.
