Sioux Falls Board of Ethics gave NO OPINION on Petition Gathering

I did not attend the meeting but was told by a foot soldier that the BOE told councilor Stehly they could not give her an opinion based on asking hypothetical questions. She did not tell them a specific petition drive she would be working on.

However she did argue that former councilor Staggers and Erickson have circulated petitions. Speaker of the House Mickelson lead a state wide petition drive and the county commissioners have circulated petitions in the past. The precedence is there. This isn’t rocket science.

It just sounds like they want to say NO but they need her to bring something forward solid so they can have a quasi-argument to say NO to.

Somehow this matter can be resolved. My message to Stehly is do it. The Board didn’t say no. She asked, they indirectly answered. A clear and obvious no would prompt ethics violation.
