Goodbye City of Sioux Falls Health Director Jill ‘Bride of’ Franken

Many of my readers have been asking me why I haven’t posted about the retirement of Jill Franken. To be brutally honest I have been privately celebrating.

But I will give her a brief reprieve.

Jill got the top job under Mayor Bucktooth & Bowlcut’s administration under the recommendation of a city councilor who was very close friends with Jill. Doesn’t really matter who that person was because it is simply a matter of ‘who you know’ not ‘what you know’.

Under Jill’s reign of chair warming she has virtually ignored prostitution in our massage parlors, helped cover up ghost ambulances and as her number one duty to protect public health in dealing with Covid turned it over to our Hospital Industrial complex. Oh, and she killed smoking at Jazzfest, which ironically has been killed anyway.

But I think my best memory of Jill was when she was asked to personally call me by the previous mayor to tell me about all the various distribution sites of FREE condoms. I wanted to laugh, but I think I just said, thanks for calling.

Like most 6-Figure directors in Sioux Falls that quickly cash-in on their retirement at the top of the pay scale I thankfully say, good riddance.

I believe the movie title was: ‘What Did You Do In the War, Daddy?’

Now, a movie must be made entitled: ‘What Did You Do During The Pandemic, Mommy?’….. (….”Well, I quit”…. )

Actually, this quitting trend, I blame it all on Palin and Pope Benedict. Oh, and Scaramucci, too.

Jill who? Is she related to Senator Franken? Is this a trivia question? One would think that the health director would be prominent during a pandemic. The method of making your friend a top official then they retire right away is disgusting. Taxpayers pay for lucrative retirements for people that can’t remember what they did if they did. Get back to building empty parking garages. It’s cheaper and there’ll be budget for other material follies.

Jill-that mouth of the south controlling the current mayor last spring when the COVID started ramping up. So long and good riddance!
