Rant a bit #14: The first interview of Indy governor Candidate Mike Myers

Former Mayo-St. Marys CEO Mike Myers has accomplished a lot in his long life. Besides his work in the medical industry, he has also been a journalist, radio host, and, most notably, a Healthcare Law Professor.

At the young age of 77, Myers is now entering politics, challenging incumbent Governor Dennis Daugaard in next year’s election. Myers joins Scott Hudson and Scott Ehrisman to discuss his reasons for entering the race, and his plans for changing the economics and politics of our state. He also puts his foot to his forehead, literally.

Hudson and Ehrisman also spend some time discussing local issues, including the recent fight to keep a giant Wal-Mart out of a residential area, and the controversial use of TIF’s to help finance so many of our city’s building projects.

Rant-a-Bit can be found in the ITunes store, and can also be streamed on Hudson’s iPhone/Android app, The Ledge. Or, you can…


Both Scott’s would like to thank Dr. Myers for appearing on our show.

My kind of politician. He made it in private life and wants to pay back for how good life has been to him. There’s a few flaws but I’m flawed and my opinion is skewed. The 4 presidents on Mount Rushmore all died nearly impoverished after successful careers. None sold 30% credit cards. None got rich diverting money from public funds into their wives name.

I’ve spoke with Professor Myer a few times and he seems to be a really nice, understanding guy.

He is smart, funny, and a tiny bit odd, he would make a great governor.

He’s the real McCoy, deserving of our support.

Does Dr. Myers have a website, or contact information…organized independents are eager to connect with an Independent candidate…
