It’s time for citizens to fix the City of Sioux Falls Charter

If you watch the meeting, you will see the CRC (Charter Revision Commission) did their darn best to make sure nothing (so far) gets on the ballot for the Spring election. They consistently refer to the council to make changes. Quite honestly, when it comes to pay or how elections are run, that should be a CITIZEN decision, and should be put on the ballot by the CRC. In fact, I think most of the council would agree.

Fortunately, Dale Froehlich and Joe Kirby showed up to reveal the changes they would like to see. I’m sure they are NOT holding their breaths. They know as well as I do that it will be up to a petition drive to fix the issues with the charter.

The CRC is meant to obstruct changes. The charter should be revoked and a new form of government invoked. Installation of a new charter should be supervised by the SD Supreme Court. City government must return to democracy without a strong Mayor dictator and with citizens voice and appeal process. Meanwhile, tattoo your number on your forehead and succumb to this Oligarchy.
