Midco Exec thinks we voted on an Indoor Pool


It amazes me that an executive from the company that is sponsoring the project is still peddling the lie that we ‘voted on this’. He said this during the grand opening ceremony (FF: 9:20);

“I’m going to guess in not to long of a period of time from now, after the community has had the opportunity to visit and take advantage of this fabulous facility, it’s gonna be darn near impossible to find anyone in Sioux Falls to admit they voted no. And if they do, just shake your head and just say, every once in awhile nobody is perfect we all make mistakes.”

The mayor even goes on to say that ‘22,193 citizens who voted . . . to support our new indoor pool’ (19:20).

Yeah, I’m shaking my head that you would make the mistake of blurting out a lie. He knows better. Even after the falsehoods sold to us in the advocational sessions and election campaign leading up to the project, the players in this cheating game can’t resist to get in one last dig and lie about the pool.

One person chose to build the indoor pool. Mike Huether. There was no vote (on an indoor pool) and it wasn’t entirely paid for with cash. You would think, that with the pool already built, they could finally start telling the truth. I guess not. You won, why continue to lie?

With all the lies told about this place, I’m starting to believe it will be cursed like King Tut’s tomb.

NOWHERE on the ballot was there mention of an indoor aquatic facility.

It was ultimately those on the City Council who voted to fund the project who are responsible for it moving forward.

Not even Mike Huether could have made this project happen without their vote!

It’s always a lie until you get real verification. There was a time when the city attorney explanation for a vote had one meaning. Now, you can’t tell if you’re voting against something or buying a used car. There was also a time when anything submitted to the city clerk was formally accepted. Now, you need witnesses and video proof.

I just realized that the exec got it wrong, if you voted NO it was against an outdoor pool. So what are the NO votes regretting, laying the path to an indoor pool?

LOL. They can’t even keep their lies straight.
