I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Some people have asked me to participate in doing things in the city. Some don’t think that my blogs and the time that goes in, are enough.
Please remember, I don’t get paid for this. I do this because I have a voice and choose to use it. I don’t hide behind anything! Not like the childish Oak Creek individual that has taken a point to try and belittle me on my weight. All that does is shows he is a child!
So… The Cudahy Triad of Triumvirate would be a group of 9 interested volunteers.
3 Cudahy Business Owners/Mangers (2 of which must live in Cudahy and 1 might be from big business or live outside Cudahy)
3 Cudahy City Personnel (1 from the Common Counsel, 1 member of the Cudahy Police Department and 1 member of City Personnel that is not elected or currently serving on a committee)
3 Cudahy Citizens not in government (2 of which would be homeowners (one must represent residents over 50) and 1 which is a renter)
This would be to discuss issues that are concerns of all or any of the three different groups. Unlike the CDA or Mayor controlled committees, this would function outside of the normal circles to bring back to the citizens, government of the people.
Would they officially have any power? NO, but a voice is power. The meetings would be completely open to the public and would be videotaped and place on the web for download and a copy or two at the library to be viewed.
The group would meet once a month to discuss topics at hand. Some might have been emailed to members. Some might come from neighbors. Some topics might come from events that transpired at official city meetings.
They might be development orientated subjects or what out of the box thing can Cudahy do to improve relationships with City Hall to the residents. They might be where in Cudahy older retirees look for outlets or how better can we engage the youth in Cudahy. They could be how to encourage the renters to take better care of the outside appearance and bring them back in the fold of the city as proud citizens.
Having a member of the Common Counsel is needed to bring any good ideas to the proper channels to have them dealt with. The Common Counsel is the branch of real power and doers and to have any impact, the group needs that connection.
If you really want to help Cudahy, it takes ALL of the types of people living and working in Cudahy, not just elitists and the young. ALL the people!
The Cudahy Triad of Triumvirate should collectively “assume the responsibility of facing the challenges and embracing the opportunities created by the disconnect that currently is prevalent with City Hall to the citizens. It would bring the citizens of Cudahy together.
People I would like to see on it!
