City of Sioux Falls 2022 Municipal Election Update

In all honesty, this really isn’t an update, because I got nothing but gossip, but let’s have fun anyway?

Mayoral Race; As it stands right now it is Paul TenHaken vs. my favorite Levitt dancer, Mr. David Zokaites. Some have speculated that others will drop their hat in this ring, but I am at a loss of words of who would.

Central District; Curt Soehl currently doesn’t have a challenger, but I suspect someone will emerge. Some names thrown around are Tom Hurlbert, Sierra Brussard and Emmett Riestroffer.

Southeast District; so far one person has announced for the empty seat that Ricky Lee Kiley will be leaving, David Barranco. I think David will have a challenger, but I’m not sure who that would be.

At Large (2 seats); There are 2 at large members, Brekke and Erickson. Erickson is term limited and will leave an open seat. The rumor is Zach DeBoer will announce he is running for that seat. Brekke is the incumbent for the other seat and I think she plans to run again.

It is pretty early in this, and I don’t expect any real commitments until after the 1st of the year but if you have any juicy, squirt it my way.

I say we all back Mr. Z and have fun with this. We can win this, too, because Taupeville’s arrogance won’t take us serious enough, which will be their eventual downfall.

I suggest we also stage sit-ins at LimitLessMale to spread further political impotence south of 57th Street.

We could also place a bunch of phony voting boxes in Taupeville to lessen the vote there as well. AND I’ll have more ideas as soon as I finish reading Roger Stone’s latest book.

Send a message, vote for Zokaitis and none of the incumbents. Will finding my polling place be another scavenger hunt? Will I again be told I can’t vote because I’m an independent?
