Sioux Falls City Council ‘AT-Large’ race should be at least a ‘Threesome’

Yeah, whether Stehly is Ramrodding or Swinging she says some interesting things

There seems to be a lot of people concerned that Theresa Stehly is running for re-election for the At-Large position with the Sioux Falls city council. Even last night at Alex Jensen’s kickoff party he brought her up without bringing her up. As I have said in the past, I’m not sure if Stehly is going to run. The last conversation we had about it she responded, “I’m not sure.” and said something about needing to clean her house.

I have been telling people it doesn’t matter if Theresa runs for re-election, we need to have a lot of people running for the seat since it is At-Large. I mean, just think about it. If Theresa doesn’t run, our only choice would be Alex who basically vowed in his speech last night to do whatever the administration wants him to do and developers and business people, which is code for ‘rubber stamper’. I would like to see 4-6 people run for the seat including Alex and Theresa. There will ultimately be a run-off anyway if there is three or more.

I would also like to see more people run against Neitzert in the NW District. He has been a total disaster, not only supporting projects and initiatives that have been detrimental to our city, but going back on his promise of good government and transparency. And his unapologetic support of the Bunker Ramp and new Internal Auditor is truly despicable.

I often tell people when municipal elections roll around to get involved, and to either run as a candidate or help a candidate. We can’t continue down this rubber stamping road.

Have you noticed how Alex conveniently shows up in the latest First Premier Bank commercial?

Talk about blatant corporate involvement in a city election, my goodness.

And let’s not forget, he’s not the first politician to come from FPB, too; and the last one left us with a useless ramp, some cheap siding, and a choice between ‘Wheel of Fortune’ or going ‘On the Road.’

I think Stehly should run for state office. She realizes the Sioux Falls City Charter is unconstitutional and might lead an effort to revoke it. Council is a waste of talent. The structure is kiss ass. The city council is just for looks. Neitzert should be confined to a chair on the council. It takes someone to pass gas once in awhile to keep everyone awake.
