Michelle was scheduled to be our guest on Rant-A-Bit today, and we had good intentions to record the show, but there are troubles on the internets and uploading new material. Meh. I’ll let my co-host go into more detail about that . . .
Anyhoo, I asked Michelle if she would do the interview via email, and she agreed. You can read her answers and entire interview here, THIS IS NOT AN AUDIO INTERVIEW: erpenbach1
Give me your thoughts on what kind of changes you would like to see to urban agriculture ordinances, if any?
Do you think the Charter Revision Commission did the right thing by tabling controversial amendments in relation to the mayor’s executive powers?
Do you think some members of the CRC have clear and blatant conflicts of interest?
Do you think snowgates have a chance of being implemented and approved by the city council and mayor or will voters have to tough this one out and have a petition drive to put it on the ballot?
Municipal elections actually excite me, and I am looking forward to April. Fortunately you are not up for re-election this cycle. What are the benefits of getting to watch this? Are you supporting any particular candidates?
Public input at council meetings has been a hot topic lately. Personally, I think they should be left as is. What are your thoughts on the topic?
Recently their has been some questions about whether the city council broke state open meetings laws by walking in and voting on resolutions to hire a new city clerk. Will you defend your actions?
Most people in political circles in Sioux Falls know the details surrounding the termination of former city clerk, Debra Owen, including myself. I’m not asking for a confession, but I am wondering, if this information becomes public, don’t you think it will be embarrassing for the city councilors who voted to terminate her?
Would you like to finish with telling us about a neighborhood summit you are hosting?
