Pat Costello; Poor choice for Sioux Falls mayor

I think this photo says it all.

When you have one of the wealthiest, arrogant, big mouths in the community pulling for you, it tells you who Pat Costello would represent. NOT YOU. Don’t believe me? Just go to his donor list. Why would some of the richest movers and shakers and biggest developers in Sioux Falls be giving money to Pat? Because they like him? Because they care about us? BAHAHAHAHA! It’s called ‘Favors’. That is why there is NO universal healthcare or public option in the current ‘healthcare reform’ legislation. Big insurance and Big pharma bought off both Dems and Republicants. And that is what is going on with Pat, they are buying him. That’s what scares the shit out of me with these guys. Remember, the guy above (Dana Dykhouse, President of First Premier Bank) is the one that sent the threatening email to councilor Staggers accusing him of ‘Class Warfare’ and ‘Organizing Opponents’ when it came to the Events Center. Kermit never organized anything, Kermit is a listener not an organizer. He’s a leader not flamethrower. This is also an interesting twist. Why isn’t Dana supporting his fellow co-worker Mike Huether? And if Huether is in the run-off with Costello, what then? Or if Huether is in the run-off with Staggers, who will Dana support? Weird, Weird, Weird. As Mike said to me once (as I tried to control myself from not laughing in his face) “I won’t do the bidding of Denny Sanford.” Uh. Probably not, since he is paying Costello to do it for him. Why would he give you money? You already know he is a crook. I just wish Mike would come out and say it. Be a badass for once!

But besides Pat’s disgustingly top heavy donor list, he really doesn’t have the resume to be a mayor. He worked one year as a CPA, he invested his silver spoon money in a bar (that has some of the highest police calls in the city) and a hamburger shop and that is about all he has accomplished. It’s easy to be successful in business when you have a lot of money to begin with to invest. He also flip-flops a lot on his votes. Just watch the council meetings, no consistency, no strong stances. Nothing but a shaved face and a good smile.

So I say to Pat, “Shut up and go make some croutons!”

For me, your picture of dikehouse says it all. He pretty much encompasses all of those “friends & neighbors” costeelo would have us believe are his driving force.

Borrowed Bucks? A meat market. There is a reason our “Skyforce” and “Storm” players hang out there.

Uh, what a bunch of classy lassies.

He should put these pictures on his mayoral website, that would get him some votes 🙂

There’s a reason I’ve never been to that awful place.

Costello kills citizens with alcohol and cholesterol (burgers). His constituancy of friends and relatives is significant because he feeds them spaghetti and red wine so they’ll make it to the polls.

Doesn’t this sound like a drug dealer taking over the cartel called city hall.

Create voters from death certiciates, drive winos to the polls, and get your dogs to vote. Most important, feed the 3 jobs working poor croutons. Get busy l3wis.

By downtown SF folks do you mean the cigar bar baron? He seems to believe he runs the entire area.

What about this, L3wis, they got it from this right?

Interesting that Dickhouse comes out for Costello and not his man Mike…

#13 l3wis on 03.12.10 at 12:41 pm

That’s because Costello has an ‘R’ behind his name and Mike has a ‘D’
