City of Racine 2009 statements of economic interest

Every year the city's elected officials, candidates or elected office and department heads are required to file a Statement of Economic Interest with the city clerk's office. Officials must report anyone who pays them, or their spouses, more than $5,000 per year. They also must report any properties they own, boards they serve on, gifts they receive and all investments. 

Below is an alphabetical list of city officials who filed statements of economic interest for 2009. Each listing includes the officials' name, sources of income, property, boards and gifts they reported. We did not reprint each person's investments, and we did not include candidates who ran for office, but were not elected.  

All city officials filed the reports on time, according to City Clerk Janice Johnson-Martin.
