Retired Sanford Executive John Paulson to challenge Staggers

I guess we are one step closer to be re-named Sanfordville. Not sure what John brings to the plate, but I guarantee his campaign will be very well-funded by the swishy-tishy in town.

And if you think a former Sanford executive will be looking out for the best interest of Joe Six-Pack in Sioux Falls, I have some rental property to sell you next to a Sanford Hospital parking lot.

Enough of former ‘executives’ in city government. They have only one mission, to butter the bread of their friends.

I heard Paulson was considering the run last week, but wasn’t sure when he would announce. But I also suspect that Staggers will have several challengers (I have heard two other names thrown out there considering the run).

Can’t wait till they make it official “Sanford Falls”

At this point yes, rename the city Sanford Falls. The actual river is diverted north and east into Brandon. The stream through town is a facade. If you name anything Sanford, it’ll stick and it’s certainly better than Huether. Renaming the city will keep the council busy so they can’t increase swimming/parking rates, litigate cell phones, or rename famous roads such as Powder House. If we’re not democracy and unconstitutional, call us Sanford.

Mmm will need a street or somewhere named huether hallow or better yet huether puddle at the indoor pool

Is Kermit running, DL? I know he’s had a few health issues this past year, and that should be his priority.

Pretty sure he is running, I think he will formally announce soon. He has been doing great.

He needs to announce soon to keep a few of the challengeers out of the race once they know he’s in. Seems too early for anyone to announce. 4-6 weeks is more than enough of a campaign for a council race.
