Sioux Falls City Councilors are picking leadership next Tuesday

The Do-Nothing Leadership of Erickson/Selberg will be sent on their way and the gavel will be handed over.

I’m not sure who will be up for vice-chair. Logically it would be between 3 councilors, Starr, Stehly and Neitzert. I can guarantee that Theresa is not interested in the position, so it will be a toss-up between Pat and Greg. Fortunately the Mayor is NOT allowed to vote on leadership.

I really believe though that council chair should be Starr with Janet or Greg as vice-chair. Normally the sitting vice-chair receives the position of Chair but I’m not sure why Selberg deserves the position. In three years Selberg has done absolutely nothing. The only legislation he has brought forward is a citizen award that has NO affect on the citizenry as a whole. He has been a rubber stamper of almost everything good and bad brought forward and has added little to the conversation. Saying only “I am listening” or “I agree with so and so.” He has been ANYTHING but a leader, but we know how these rodeos work.

Will Selberg run in 2020 for a second four-year term?

After watching his performance for the past 3+ years on the Council, I would say he likes the status of being a city councilor. He’s proven to be a place-holder only and has very little in the way of accomplishments to show for his time on the Council.

Hopefully other candidates from the SW District will surface for the April 2020 municipal election.

Selberg has all the personality and gumption of . . . bread. No wonder he couldn’t make it selling residential real estate for Lloyd, and had to move to a K-W brokerage.

Selberg must like golf though. He sure got upset about the golf contract. He’s the “Justice Thomas” of the City Council: Not a lot of talk, but he always votes with the majority.
