Man, I can’t stand Dennis “I’m asshole” Troha! He arranged a Feb. 2nd fund raiser for Governor Doyle and even though he is supporting a candidate I support, I still can’t stand the man. He states, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “absolutely no assurances, no threats’ to persuade the contractors to make large donations.”
Yeah, like I believe that. Isn’t this the man who said that you need to know how to swing the bat to do business in Kenosha? Who the hell does this guy think he is Tony Soprano? I swear, this guy is the guy who gives Italians a bad name!
Also according to the JS article, Troha said: “Anybody who is a friend of the project, a friend of the governor’s, is a friend of mine.” Really? Now, he sounds like Pacino in Scarface.
I’ve seen a lot of money poured into Milwaukee and Wisconsin from the Potawatomi tribe and I think casinos are good for the economy to a point, but I have plenty of objections.
First, I’m not backing anything that still has Dennis Troha’s name attached to it. He was a lousy owner and employer when he owned ATC Leasing/Dallas and Mavis and I’m sure he will still suck big time at a casino. The man is a union buster and rarely gave decent raises to his employees while he lives high on the hog. And, hired his family members to help siphon off the profits into the family’s hands.
Second, a “Connecticut-based Mohegan tribe is partners with the Menominee tribe of Wisconsin” and I don’t believe for one minute that a Connecticut tribe is going to give a rat’s ass about the people of Wisconsin. They only want to make money.
Finally, I’m really sick of Kenosha anyway. They don’t have to pay for the stupid baseball stadium that those of us in Racine have to pay for. If there is going to be a casino in the Racine/Kenosha area, it should be ours, not theirs. I could care less if their dog track folds. Too many jerks from Illinois have moved into Kenosha and ruined it for the rest of us.
Well, that’s all I got to say about that.
