Mayor TenHaken Tweets campaign commercials while chairing the City Council meeting tonight

As you can see while the council meeting is going on (7:24 PM) the mayor is tweeting campaign commercials on his twitter page. Not only is this during a city council meeting he is chairing it is during the discussion of employee bonuses.

WOW!

This reminds me a little of when councilor Knudson was watching the Olympics during a meeting, but what makes this even more egregious is it is the chair of the meeting during a discussion on bonuses for city employees.

I guess you could argue he can multi-task, a candidate for office should not be promoting his candidacy during an official meeting we are paying him to chair.

Can anyone say unethical?

It is fair to assume that someone is posting it for him. Or he is using a software that autoposts at preset times. Or maybe one of his city paid employees, hmmmm, start the conspiracy.

To be fair, I would agree, one of his campaign goons are probably posting this stuff, but wouldn’t they have enough sense to not post it during a meeting? Sometimes I wonder.

It takes selfish and unethical to lead. Ask Huether and Putin. Could have been worse. He could have been watching kiddy porn with a fire chief and police.

In what year will his daughter take over the regime? And does Putin have kids, too?

We live in an age of image over substance. I love the mentor program, however, but with tax assessments going up 20+% and wages increasing only to cover inflation, where will these mentored kids work and live “someday”?

His first commercial also talks about housing, too, but shouldn’t he have been talking and doing something about that from day one? Oh, that’s right, no time for that. He was too busy looking for a culturalist chief and picking out comfy chairs for the State Theatre.

“‘culturalist chief’?”…. “What are we, French?”…. “Well, then how come Chick-fil-A doesn’t offer their own version of Chicken Cordon Bleu, and why not French Fries instead of those Waffle House fries as well?”….. “And here’s a theme song idea for the Mayor’s next commercial to incorporate his successes with the State Theatre”….:

SO…OOOO….OOO. HE POSTED DURING A COUNCIL MEETING. NOTHING COMPARED TO “I DIDN’T SIGN UP FOR THIS”. He needs to go!
