I WIN! Most public input presentations in the past year!

Not that there was a contest, but I beat out some fierce competitors. Sorry Zombie Fighter Mayoral Candidate, beat yah. Sorry drug dealer fighter. You are toast. Oh, and I beat cameraman Bruce and the disgruntled veteran. I have had 26 public inputs in the past year. DOC: 2018-06-18 Public Input Frequency (data from city clerk’s office)

And this is why public input is VERY important!

Don’t let the city council buffalo you with ‘compromises’ and threatening certain ‘factions’ we need to keep things just the way they are.

I am just a regular person who watches my city government, and I have proven over the past year you can give the maximum of yourself to make sure our local government operates at it’s highest potential.

So please, step up to the podium and don’t let the very powerful 1% of our community control your lives, you hold that right, guaranteed by the US Constitution and 1st Amendment.

Our founding fathers were not naive, they made this precious gift #1 for a reason, because they knew the best ideas came from the members of this Republic and not behind closed doors by the monied elite.

Okay, I was wrong.

It seems Daugaard and Huether are out of the mix for USD president;

The following candidates will visit the campus on April 24 and 25 to meet with constituents and regents:

  • Kelli R. McCormack Brown (Milledgeville, GA)Provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, Georgia College & State University
  • Christopher Callahan (Phoenix, AZ)
  • Dean, vice provost, and professor, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication, Arizona State University

  • Sheila Gestring (Vermillion, SD)Vice president of finance and chief financial officer, USD
  • Philip K. Way (Slippery Rock, PA)Interim president, Slippery Rock University

For once I can honestly say, I’m glad the rumors were not true.

Prayers for State Legislator Karen Soli

I found out today that she has a serious illness, and is putting up the good fight. I have known Karen a long time, and she has shown to be a great bridge builder in Pierre and is an amazing human being. I wish her and her family well.

There was a public announcement of Karen’s illness at Democratic Forum.

Burn Baby Burn!

RIP Tom Petty

Probably one of the best concerts I have ever seen at the Sioux Falls Arena. Besides Fogerty, Petty is probably one of my favorite Male American classic rock singers.

A little dance break

Cameraman Bruce wants you to know his services are also available for senior barn dances 🙂

POP Art in Sioux Falls?! Get OUT!

I saw this ripping cool piece today on a bike ride, and was like, “WTF?!”

Pretty cool to get a large scale POP art piece in Sioux Falls.

Everytime I think I know everything, I watch this stuff
