Sioux Falls City Councilor Rex Rolfing berates one of his fellow city councilors using taxpayer funded media

Leave it to Rex Rolfing to get one last dig in on Stehly before he leaves. Ironically his stint on Inside Town Hall was supposed to be about a cemetery and his ‘accomplishments’ on city council. He could only name things that we the taxpayer’s paid for (but didn’t get to have a say in).

When mentioning the indoor pool at Spellerberg he commented that it should have been built at Drake Springs and that just a ‘few’ people got involved and a ‘few’ people voted against in an indoor pool.

Actually, Stehly and Co. collected several thousand signatures and several thousand voters approved an outdoor pool at the location.

As for the location, as I have mentioned numerous times, Nelson park would have been a terrible location for an indoor pool due to ground water issues as our very own aquatic consultant told us when recommending the Spellerberg location.

What is even more troubling is that Rolfing made these statements about a fellow councilor (without saying her name) on a media source funded by taxpayers. He also rips on her at the end of the show about not collaborating. Not sure if my memory serves me, but I think there is an ethics violation in there somewhere.

He was also asked what he would tell future councilors, he would recommend changing public input, he said in his opinion it is ‘Too Darn Long.’ He went on to rant that ‘he can’t have everyone in Sioux Falls telling him what to do.’ Hey Rex, you know as a councilor you are a representational officer of the people? He basically defends his votes that are against the citizenry on closed government. LOL! A closed government he adamantly supported.

Isn’t it amazing this guy has learned nothing about government in the 8 long years he has been there. Rex, do you need help moving to Florida?

T-Rex is a grumpy old man that belongs in a museum with other dinosaurs.

On the 7th day God was tired. He postponed putting brains in a few. Overnight, some escaped. One of them was Rex. He could have been rescued but the sun caused common sense damage and he wasn’t wearing a hat.

Linda has a point. The majority of this council is absent from the community. They’re after selfish consideration from a few wealthy opportunists. Stehly and Starr are exceptions. They’re highly visible and promote transparency. I wonder about Neitzert. He has traded sides with recent votes. Rolfing only wakes up when someone’s wearing a hat. With this election we can get 3 new councilors. Kiley should be sequestered or censured with an ethics hearing.
