Is a Minnehaha County Commissioner Candidate Incumbent planning to resign after being elected?

There is a rumor going around that one of the Republican incumbent Minnehaha County commissioners plans to resign if/after they are re-elected. While I have a pretty good guess who that may be, I have NO idea if they plan to resign soon after the election (so someone can be appointed) or wait two years (when the next election is held for the county commission).

If this is true, my guess is they will put in a couple of months and resign after January so they can appoint another Republican and create a FAKE incumbent like they did with Jean Bender.

It’s a little trick the Republican’s pull all the time in the legislature and now it seems they are getting used to the practice on the County Commission.

Like I said, at this point it is a rumor, but had a pretty reliable source tell me about it.

“He was a born executive, his father own the company.”

“He/She was an political official, his/her political party owned the state.”

Recently, over at the War Campus blogsite, they were complaining that if the Dems took over the Governor’s Mansion in ’18, that such a reality would make it harder, or impossible, to appoint Republicans to the bench and the legislature, and they even conveniently, or arrogantly, listed all of the legislative appoints made by GOP governors in recent times…..So with that blog piece, we found the smoking gun, or caught them red handed, did we not?… (Definitely, “Red.”)

It’s sad if city and state fecelence spreads into Minnehaha County. The county has done well managing a meager budget without election fraud and TIF-like corruption. I suppose it’s inevitable.
