Sioux Falls City Councilor Kiley staunch supporter of government secrecy

SE District Councilor Kiley has announced today he is running for a 2nd term.

That’s too bad.

At this point he has no challengers though there have been a couple of people who have seemed interested.

Kiley will try to paint a rosy picture of his first 4 years which couldn’t be further from the truth;

During his first term, Kiley, 64, fought to maintain free and reduced pool passes for Sioux Falls most needy, reformed door-to-door sales regulations in the name of consumer protection and voted against raising paratransit fares on multiple occasions.

And that is about as good as it gets for Rick. He has fought hard to protect secretive government in Sioux Falls and has backed the mayor almost 99.9% of the time when it comes to his agenda, including an unneeded administration building & change in council elections requiring a majority.

Kiley has also done very little in being an advocate for citizens and often defends city directors over citizens. He also helped lead the charge to concoct bogus ethics charges against Stehly basically throwing one of his peers under the bus under false pretenses under the direction of one of the most unqualified city attorneys we have ever had.

Kiley is bad news, especially if we get a mayor truly committed to open and transparent government, he will find himself in a very lonely place over the next 4 years.

Hopefully we can find a good challenger and someone who can paint a real picture of Kiley’s true anti-citizen government views.

To send a message I am voting for 4 new councilors. Whomever runs against Kiley gets my vote. If nobody runs, I’ll leave it blank.

For anyone who has watched Kiley in Council meetings over the past 4 years, they know Kiley rarely has an original thought. He simply parrots what other councilors and the mayor have already said.

Voters in the SE District, is this really who you want to represent you?

It could not have been better explained. Kiley have been one of MMM’s lap dogs and rubber stamps. He cares not about the average citizen and thinks his status is above theirs. Furthermore, his arrogance and pride are obvious as he attempts to manipulate others opinions.

I would NEVER vote for him in any election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, no more Kiley. The wrong direction is over. Repel away. A different direction might not be right but it doesn’t follow the Huether kiss ass course.

There is a ready-made spot on Diamond Jim’s lap for this stooge.
