City of Sioux Falls Housing Director tells Tea Residents to NOT use Sioux Falls services

While she has no problem with driving to Sioux Falls to draw her paycheck from Sioux Falls taxpayers she encourages residents of TEA to not shop in Sioux Falls or use their services.

It still baffles me that we hired a Tea resident to run our housing division, and also allowed her to run for Tea City Council. But her comments about her civic pride in Tea says a lot about what she thinks of her employer, the City of Sioux Falls.

You are both making the same mistake of conflating business development and governance. It’s like you’re both looking in a mirror and only seeing each other, not yourselves.

As a city council member, we can serve as an ambassador for Tea and learn best practices from other communities.

Another TenHaken appointee?!

A TEA City Councilor making a six-figure income off of SF taxpayers as SF Housing Director, and an IT Director with a HS diploma.

What could possibly be wrong with this picture!?

It’s obvious Sioux Falls government is not transparent and rather corrupt. An outspoken city employee living in Tea is an important step toward change. She’s a hero who can start a movement comparable to WW2 French resistance that helped defeat Germany.

What’s especially important here is she can’t be forced to live in Sioux Falls because a superior (the Fire Chief) lives even farther away in Canton. There’s potential here for a discrimination lawsuit. Keep it up. I’d rather have the city broke from a federal hundred million lawsuit than more play palaces built for the upper class or a concert shell named Sanford in the flood plain that doesn’t serve alcohol.

Lol, her wish is granted:

“@Argus911 the traffic lights at the I-29 Tea exit have been blinking red for a few days, traffic is backed up in town and the ramps. Just don’t try to leave or come to Tea via I-29 for a few hours, we’re all late for work.”
