UPDATE: Guest on KSOO AM 1000 today, 4:15

I will be talking about loads of city business, tune in to find out. REPLAY HERE.

REPLAY: DaCola on Lalley, (10/12/17)

REPLAY PODCAST. Not sure what we will all be covering, but I’m sure the topic of siding will come up 🙂

Advice to Sioux Falls City Councilor Erickson; When doing business with the Public, it’s Public.

Councilor Erickson was on The Good Ship Lalley show today talking about city business.

She touched on several topics with city business. A couple of things that stuck out;

• She questioned if a ‘Million dollars’ (in reference to the siding settlement) is really ‘A Lot’ of money. I felt she was downplaying the settlement as not a big deal.

• She did admit that there should have been more transparency with the settlement.

• She defended the secrecy of RFP candidates proposals saying they may use the plans for other projects. First off, there is nothing ‘special’ about many of these proposals. Most affordable housing projects in this town look exactly the same. 2nd, you could share the proposals with the entire council in executive session. And Lastly, most important, WHEN DOING BUSINESS WITH THE PUBLIC, IT BECOMES PUBLIC. When a private contractor is receiving PUBLIC money, our money, they must be an open book. There is NO excuse to keep these things secret.

• She isn’t publicly supporting any mayoral candidate. I agree with her that is a smart move. It could cause issues in the future with whoever becomes mayor.

Stehly to talk about City Government secrecy today on Lalley’s show

Theresa is set to be on at 4:15 PM. KSOO information 1000.

I’m hoping the EC siding settlement will be public by than.

Replay of me on Lalley’s Show


Guest on KSOO AM 1000 today

I will be on the Good Ship Lalley Pop show at 4:15 PM today. Not sure what is on the docket for discussion, but I’m sure we will be talking about all the peeps running for mayor and city council. I will also try to get in a little about my ordinance review. Tune In.

South DaCola Podcast IV: Patrick Lalley

Patrick becomes our first guest on the Podcast. He gives us a history of his professional life and some insight into the current state of media. He also catches me yawning 🙂

You can also listen to Patrick’s podcast re-plays of his KSOO radio program.

Just to Clarify

When you only have 30 minutes (about 20 minutes when news and ads are played) it’s hard to rattle off everything you want to say on a radio program.

Yesterday on the Patrick Lalley show, Pat asked a few questions I wanted to go into more detail on. The first one about being a ‘bomb thrower’. I guess I just look at things in a different perspective, and if I see things going on in local government that doesn’t pass the smell test, I like to dig in it a bit. I don’t consider that ‘bomb throwing’ I consider that ‘truth telling’.

But the other question Pat asked just to get some jollies out of me was, “Why do you hate the mayor?” OR he may have phrased it, “Do you hate the mayor?” I can’t remember, either way, as I said on the show, I don’t think about politician’s personal lives or personal feelings and went on to say that I may hate the policy decisions the mayor may make, but not the person.

But I wanted to also clarify something else. I know that I have been accused of being mean and ‘personally’ attacking the mayor and his family. Trust me, if I really wanted to attack the mayor’s personal life, or quite honestly anyone on the council, I would have plenty of ammunition. But I’m not the National Enquirer. I have been told all kinds of things about the Mayor and council, some I have verified, some is just gossip. But I want to reassure people, that most of the stories I hear are pretty harmless things in their personal lives that have more to do with being a little quirky even if lawyers have been involved a few times. But for the most part our local city politicos have pretty clean records, and for that, we can consider ourselves very fortunate. Now if we can just clean up the Fire Department . . . 🙁

DaCola on Lalley, Monday 4:30

I will be on Patrick Lalley’s show, tomorrow (July 31, 2017) at 4:30. Not sure what he wants to pick my brain about, but I am assuming it will be city politics.
