City of Sioux Falls Innovation Director jumps (the rudderless) ship

This is the 2nd Innovation Director that the mayor has appointed that has quit. The council was informed on June 30 that he ‘resigned’. Chief of Staff and part-time mayor, Erica Beck will be the interim director.

I find this ironic since just 2 weeks ago I reminded the public at a council meeting all the directors that have quit working for this mayor, you know, the guy ‘building a team’.

I have no idea why he quit, and to tell you the truth, I don’t care. I can’t give you one single bullet point of what he did while being in the position.

Not just anyone can survive in a “Leadership Team”. 😉

At least something’s happening at city hall. It’s very suspicious how people come and go. It’s like a dating site. Everything sounds good but when it’s time to react you get Ghosted.

So what, The mayor does a decent job on his own. The City is in great hands. However, having a constant rotation of directors is not a bad thing, it does restrict government to a part time based institution. There just happens to be more money in the private sector, and you sometimes have to take opportunities.

There is nothing part-time about the compensation for City Directors.
Churning a series of employees through a positiin … of any compensation level … with nothing substantial to show the result of the series of employment decisions is pretty damned expensive.
Tell me, what did the City and the land-holding, taxpaying property owners get for employing Liquor Cart Boy?
