It looks like the Racine Mayor job is attracting some attention by Democrats…Both Assemblymen Turner and Mason have made indications that they are interested in the position.

Glad to see Helding has thrown his hat in…this will be a fun few weeks!!!

During the President’s inauguration speech Becker’s letter of resignation is delivered to City Hall.
