Part III of Jamison’s ‘People (Monkeys) First Initiative’


Sioux Falls – Jamison, on Monday will announce part III of his People (Monkey’s) First Initiative, which will release the (snow) monkeys at the Great Plains Zoo. Jamison’s plan will be allowing the monkeys to either find a place down by the Big Sioux River on their own, or they can couch surf as long as they like.

Jamison feels it is time to ‘Release the Monkeys’ and give them the freedoms their descendants have (no offense Manny Steele).

Of course, the Huether campaign was quick to respond. Huether said, “I have been planning the release of the snow monkeys for a couple of months, ever since I took them on an ice fishing trip out at my lake home on Diamond Lake. Heck, I would go even a step further, and let them stay at my lake home, of course, if they don’t throw any crap, because, you know, I don’t like CRAP.”

Jamison also said that Huether missed the 2nd and 3rd tier of this initiative, allowing squirrels to maintain several nests on different properties within the city limits.

Huether responded by saying, “I have been allowing the cottontails AND squirrels to do that for several years through an executive order, and you can bet a snowgate tour of the event center for affordable airfares on it that the squirrels and rabbits are happy about it, but the chickens, not so much.”

Stay tuned, Jamison plans to announce his ‘No crying at press conferences’ initiative next week. Don’t bring tissues to the press conference, just your big boy/girl pants.

It would be nice if Jamison would announce that he would plow the streets once in a while. If he is elected I would hope his first order of business is to fire Galen Huber.

And not only plow them, but if and when you do plow them make sure it is with two plows with the second one getting much closer to the curb. So that the USPS doesn’t have to place postcards in the mailboxes telling people that they cannot reach their boxes. A reality that could be remedied rather quickly for most winters if we would just return to the old double plow approach which worked for decades before we built a EC, an indoor pool, and pursued a Chinese style pre-emptive infrastructure building game plan….

Oh, and when they finally decide to plow them don’t be surprised if you find underneath a bunch of frozen leaves….. Hey, there’s another campaign issue…..

Jamison really needs to start doing something if he watns to get elected. The poor work of the street dept in plowing snow this year would be a good place to start.
