As I mentioned before, during the indoor pool groundbreaking press conference (demolition) Mayor Huether mentions a secret group that assisted him on getting the outdoor pool vote to fail at Spellerberg. He also peddles the lie that 70% of the voters wanted an indoor pool at Spellerberg. Not sure how he can claim that, because that wasn’t even on the ballot. Many people who voted NO told me that they were either confused by the ballot language, or they simply wanted Spellerberg to be a greenspace park without any pools. But back to the secret group he announced;
Rolly Samp (Sioux Falls Attorney)
Dave Volk (Former State Treasurer and Janklow minion)
Brett Bradfield (USF)
Jon Sommervold (The Great Hall at the Pavilion is named after his mother)
Mike Crane (Sioux Falls Developer who has development investments with Cindy Huether)
Kathy Clark (Regional VP of Commercial Banking at Wells Fargo)
I scratch my head as to ‘what’ this secret group did. As you know before the election there were many complaints about the misleading videos and ballot language. Were these people behind the campaign of falsehoods? Speaking of white lies, Councilor Karsky peddles the ‘debt free’ mantra in the press conference also.
