When endorsing candidates, transparency is key

First I will start with a plug, VOTE STEHLY! Unless you want to turn the RS5 into the RS6. And who needs TWO Marshall Selbergs on the council anyway?

These two endorsement videos on FB for Count Jensen were okay, but they lacked transparency. The first one is by the person who worked for Mayor TenHaken at ClickVain and took over the company when he became mayor. The second video is of a person married to Craig Lloyd’s nephew who works for the family business.

I’m wondering why neither wanted to mention their ‘deep roots’ in the Sioux Falls community? Oh, that’s right, because of the HUGE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST! If you want someone to endorse you, that is awesome, but they should be transparent about who they are.

If only they had positioned their cameras closer to their faces.

My hunch is this is about 65-35 race in the AL contest & maybe 55-45 in the NW. Both races, particularly the AL should tighten in the next 17 days.
What’s your sense, as of today? Heard anything regarding any polling or informal surveying?

I had Big T winning by 60% if election was in April, now I’m not so sure. I think her incumbency will put her over the top but the Covid has really thru a wrench in my predictions. I think Neitzert will easily get 70-80% of the vote.

#7 Where's Alex? on 05.15.20 at 1:02 pm

Since she says “What you see with Alex is what you get.” Does this mean we get nothing?

Does “Big T” have any endorsements? If so, who are they?

I am voting for Theresa but, I think there is a very good chance she loses. I think folks forget how much bad press she has had over the last year or two. Regardless of what everything on here thinks many voters do not pay that much attention and the Argus has been not really great to Teresa. If she loses it will only be due to so many unforced errors.

Unfortunately, Greg will get reelected so that sucks and we will still have 4+ voices who vote lockstep. The good news is we will get rid of Kiley and Erickson’s next election!

Transparency-none here. Rain Click No Brain and her Siamese Twin joined at the hip acting like her and AJ still at Lincoln High. Yep what you see with these 2 phonies and AJ is what you get-Nothing!

CH,

The good news is we will get rid of Kiley and Erickson next election!

Don’t be so sure about that, Erickson wants to be Mayor. Watch the Council meetings, she’s already positioning herself to run.

She has a heel strategy.

CE has no qualifications to be a mayor. She has a lot of growing up to do. Besides if you know nothing about the NFL she’s a nobody. Maybe she should go find relatives in Rapid City and stay there or move to Indianapolis and grow up to act like her brother!

Thank you Theresa with those two gals above glad I voted for a voice who represents the working class.There already is enough people who do not represent working class people, especially Corona Tenhaken.

“… Craig Lloyd’s nephew who works for the family business.”
As President and CEO.
The spouse of the President and CEO of one of the city’s largest development companies endorses Alex!
This is all you really need to know in this election.

Put a kicker in city hall, not a punter.
