I’m starting to think TenHaken is NOT interested in a 2nd Term

Many people within the city administration are starting to wonder if Paul is even interested in a 2nd term. Who files paperwork to run, asks for money then when questioned by several media sources if he is running for a 2nd term he blows them off. If he really was interested in a 2nd term, he would have at least put out a press release saying he WILL run for a 2nd term but will make an official announcement later this summer. I still think he hasn’t made up his mind.

He certainly hasn’t been having much fun fighting flooding, tornados and Covid, and from listening to him grunt and groan at the city council meetings, he certainly doesn’t like being there either. I think being mayor takes a person who likes social interaction. I think Mayors Huether and Munson truly enjoyed that part of the job, Paul seems to be uncomfortable with it. If he decides to not run, which is looking like more and more he isn’t, I wonder who they will recruit to run in his place. This could get pretty juicy.

What is interesting is that Paul moved the money he had left over from his first term into his PAC and I can’t find anywhere where that money was moved back.

In another bizarre move, he is having his state of the city address at the State Theater and it will only live stream on the city’s Facebook page. And good luck finding a seat once all the city employees fill it up.

Where in the hell is Chick-fil-A?

Likely, he’s waiting to see if anyone qualified runs against him. My opinion but who would want to be mayor. Huether left the city in the red, with ongoing debt service, and a poor bond rating. Developers are not going to insert a mayor if there’s nothing to rip off. However, new construction requires Mayor/Council approval with bribes from developers. Any white collar criminal works.

Where in the hell are our street cleaners?

It is all just a board game. PTH wishes he could just draw a card which says “Advance token to Governor’s office” or “Advancd token to U.S. Senate”.

TGfG is right. That’s what ThuneHaken actually, or thought he, signed up for.

Whatever happen to his garage videos? It’s a sign that he’s no longer really into this gig anymore, isn’t it? And some say there was a direct correlation between the end of the fire side chats and the arrival of Lucy, too, do you get my drift?
