Usually, when people come up with a campaign slogan, they stole it from somewhere. So I was curious about Bayse’s campaign promise;

Leading with purpose.

Serving with passion.

If you are in upper management or an executive with a company, this is a great philosophy to get your employees to work harder;

Those who lead with a purpose are passionate about what they do, and they inspire others to follow them by communicating their vision effectively and by creating a positive and supportive work environment. They are also able to motivate and empower their team members to work towards achieving their shared purpose.

Leading with a purpose is not just about achieving material success; it is also about making a positive impact on the world and contributing to the greater good. It requires a commitment to values such as integrity, honesty, and social responsibility. By leading with a purpose, leaders can create a sense of meaning for their team members, which can lead to increased engagement, motivation, and productivity.

But let’s remove ourselves from the corporate world of making money, and look at the office Bayse is trying to get elected to.

The city council’s job is writing policy in coordination with constituents needs. Their ONLY partner should be us. You work for the constituents, you are NOT our manager or boss. On top of that, according to city charter, it is the Mayor’s duty to unite and lead city employees, council, not so much.

It often baffles me that people run for office knowing little about what their eventual duties are and create cutesy word combinations from the corporate world to sound all techy and modern. We need a councilor that will work WITH constituents, not against us, you are NOT our boss, you are our servant.

*As for the NE, I live in Central so I cannot vote for anyone. While I did do some paid advertising and graphics for two of the candidates in the district, I am NOT endorsing anyone. I have said, vote for anybody but Bayse, and if you don’t like any of the candidates, abstain.

I will though, endorse Jordan Deffenbaugh for At Large and believe he has a good chance of winning in a runoff (send him money!)

I would also encourage a vote for Pat Starr for school board (I only voted for Pat today and left my second choice blank).

I want people to know I have been a graphic designer for over 30 years and have ran this blog for 17 making little to no money from my blogging endeavors. I will work with anybody even if I disagree with their political stance. My BFF is a card carrying Trumper, and we get along just fine. If they are paying me for my services I can’t deny them access to those services because I disagree with their political stance. So if you take issue with that, stop reading and commenting on my blog, or better yet, send me money to operate the blog so I don’t have to do paid advertising and I can ban all political asshats from advertising here.

8 Thoughts on “City of Sioux Falls NE Council Candidate, Bayse, encourages corporate mindset in her campaign material

    Need I say it again? Corporatists are communists. They have a CEO (Presidium, Premier, or Party Chair), a Board of Directors (Politburo), powerless stockholders (Supreme Soviet – legislative body – rubber stamp), and want to control everything and form a monopoly (Worldview – Marxist-Leninist Doctrine – total control of the means of production). The only difference is that the communists have a standing army, while the corporatists have a battery of attorneys.

    ( and Woodstock adds: “Yah, but what about the fundamentalists and their constant hope of fighting the next crusade?….. That crowd definitely is an enabler to the corporate’s agenda, and they definitely have a crazed army”…. )

    Oh, that’s right, vote just once and vote Starr! … (Although, he did vote to put motorcycles on our sidewalks and bike trail system…. Shame, shame…. 😉 )

    i live in the ne district, and don’t really like any of the candidates. other than buzz words, catch phrases, and talking points, i don’t think mrs. bayse knows anything about the issues facing her district.

    Riot at the pen….. Tea Storm Chasers truly the only ones on the scene reporting on how yelling can be heard outside the walls…. Would a food truck help?….. Maybe they are mad about who won the Burger Battle….

    Everyone should buy Trump’s Flag Bible or Gold Tennis Shoes. NOT!!! What’s happened to the RNC? MAGA got lost. City council has become absurd and ridiculous. Hearing from them is like the fast mumbling at the end of a commercial. They’re inserted but you’re not supposed to notice. Rulings are authoritarian mayor commands.

    Is Bayse one of the candidates foisted forward to a City Council position by the ecosystem of entrepreneurism?
