Sioux Falls City Council not told about important events

So yesterday the Chamber of Commerce sends out notices of events. Two important events pop up;

May 7, Groundbreaking of Downtown Parking Ramp &

May 10, Administration Building Ribbon Cutting

I asked 3 city councilors today if they knew about the obvious last minute events before Mike leaves office. None of them had heard anything before I told them.

Keeping it transparent all the way to the end.

No wonder the mayor didn’t want to take questions at Dem Forum today. Oh, but one lady did ask one after the mayor said the per capita debt in SF is lower then the rest of the region. This lady yells out quickly, “What is that amount?” And Mike replies, “I don’t know.”

May 15th can’t come soon enough.

If things don’t change soon, perhaps we should change the name of the City Council to the Supreme Soviet. Because if it’s going to be a rubber stamp, then we could at least give it a foreign distinction.

This will be a new City Council composure. The mayor not apprising the council of important decisions and events is unprofessional and unethical. It’s worthy of Mayoral Recall. However, this is Strong Mayor Nazi Chancellorship. It’s to late to remove Heinrich Huether but there can be a safety net with checks and balances for the new mayor. Mexican liberty is Cinco de Mayo. Sioux Falls liberty is May 15th.

I’m a chamber volunteer, we have known about the events for close to a month now I think. Marshall Selberg is a diplomat…the least he could do would be to let the other councilors know if the mayor hadn’t told them.

Theresa Stehly creates occasional public issue direct mail cards, and publishes/distributes her own newspaper periodically – BOTH AT HER OWN EXPENSE. Marshall Selberg apparently can’t even peruse the info available to the commerce org he’s active in & email his fellow councilors to keep them apprised of info/events they might find relevant to their responsibilities. He’s a Lloyd Cos. salesman. If his time doesn’t produce a commi$$ion, he’s not interested. He cares about nobody but himself & his employer, and has proven to be an arrogant tool.
