by Jim Ladwig, Racine County Executive

As we reach this time of the year, we reflect on the previous months and look forward to the holiday season and the New Year.

December is the time we wrap up activities and projects and evaluate how we did in the past year. Racine County has had a successful year. We have attracted new businesses and worked hard to retain our existing businesses and jobs. For the third consecutive year, we have presented and adopted a budget with no increase in the general countywide tax levy.

Racine County is headed in a great direction and I am optimistic that 2014 will bring us many new and exciting opportunities. I want to again thank each of our dedicated employees and wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy and Happy New Year!

As always, I welcome your thoughts and comments. My email is RCExecutive@goracine.org.
