Former mayor Munson finally speaks

like it matters . . . Too little, too late.

It sorta reminds me of his silent endorsement of Staggers for mayor. What’s the point?

This part made me shoot vodka thru my nose;

But Munson is worried that other economic factors are getting lost along the way.

“I applaud the Mayor for continuing on with the process because I think it’s important,” Munson said. “But what it’s going to get down to at the end of the day is money.”

Munson says not a lot is known about how Sioux Falls will pay for the $100 million dollar proposal, and that too much of the focus has been on the debate between the arena site and downtown.

“Not only do you build it, but after you build it, you’ve got to pay for the operating of the facilities,” Munson said.

Dave, Dave, Dave, I rattled your balls about this numerous times when you were mayor, just like I said on Tuesday night, now all of sudden the torch has been passed to you to champion these issues? Go away. Please. This is no longer your fight, like it ever was to begin with.

I don’t really know what to say about this video, except that is it worthless, typical, Perry Groten reporting. Get a bunch of random people that don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground and ask them about economic impact etc. It reminds of when Perry did a story about luxury backyard BBQ’s and a guy spent over 10 grand on his, and when the Stormland TV crew showed up, he was cooking hot dogs on it. I wish I could dig up the email I sent Groten that day.

Perry Groten is terrible.

Not to insult the people he interviewed, but seriously, why not interview people who have a concept of current events, instead of people who use TIDBITS as their diaper.

Yup, on a $10,000 grill. Money well spent.

KELO makes me sick. Their type of reporting and “investigative” actions are terrible.

The media portrays Sioux Falls as “Happy Giddy Town.”

Such. Crap.

Where is KELOland? Sounds like another fascist Home Rule place where citizens are tortured and the media is propaganda controlled by one developer.

Munson is known for his debt ridden foolish unjustified follies. He steered money away from infrastructure into a bankrupt Pavilion and 10 empty baseball fields. Probably the only good thing about spring floods is crap will be high enough to corode his plaque.

“Probably the only good thing about spring floods is crap will be high enough to corode his plaque.”
