UPDATE II: Ran into a local journalist, almost literally 🙂 tonight. They told me they called Selberg and asked him about the move. He didn’t deny it and said that he needed to move on after his council service and owns several properties. So where do you live Marshall? Mars? Your last meeting is May 21st, and you must be in compliance until then. What Mr. Selberg doesn’t understand is that you can still be brought up on ethics and perjury charges AFTER you are done on the council.

Technically, on the books, Mr. Selberg is your councilor. But is he still legally? Going thru voter registration, you find some interesting things. Selberg registered to vote in the Northwest District this past February;

Name: Marshall Selberg  A

ADDRESS: 3208 W WOODCREST WAY

CITY: SIOUX FALLS SD 57105

CITYWARD: Sioux Falls Ward-3

He has owned the property since October 2022 (not sure has he lived there that long, but a possibility).

So I wonder how this is going to get explained away?

Now there are some rules that if redistricting occurs and the property you live in MOVES into the new district, you can still serve out your term in the new district. BUT, if you buy property and MOVE after the redistricting, that doesn’t count.

UPDATE: I guess Marshall Selberg thinks listing his former address on his campaign finance form AFTER he changed his voter registration was a good idea. He changed his voter registration to NW in February and his treasurer signed this form in early March. So where do you live Marshall? NW or SW? So I guess when Marshall is acting as a councilor he lives in the SW when he votes he lives in the NW. So does the person who lives in your old address KNOW you are using their address on a legal document? Probably not, guessing we all know who is living in the former address.

Also, did you bother to tell your treasurer your new address? You know, by her signing this she is committing perjury by putting a false address on the form. So is she part of the conspiracy, or did you lie to her also?

So the whole ‘honest mistake’ argument isn’t carrying much water with me. Everyone knows what their legal address is, especially someone who has served on the council for 8 years. And I would hope the treasurer would know the REAL address of the candidate. I almost want to stop digging around on this, every corner I go around I see another form filled out wrong, what a trainwreck. This is just like the Title IX Plaintiff that is running for School Board, just fill out forms willy nilly, and guess what, no one of authority will look into it, the media will run the other direction, heck even give you a heads up and tell you screwed up then don’t cover the mistake in the news because that would be too ‘negative’.

Now we will see if anyone on the current city council or media want to challenge this one. Probably not. If it helps I heard he filled out the documents at a chamber event in the back of a food truck while making walking tacos (for Denny Sanford).

5 Thoughts on “UPDATE II: How long have SouthWest Sioux Falls District residents been without a legitimate city councilor?

    But what’s Matt’s position? Then I want to hear Mike’s.

    Seems fitting for another city official lying on a government affidavit. Just like the impeached councilman, Selberg quietly collects a paycheck while committing perjury. Add this to the school board candidate who is running for an office where she won’t be able to do the job because she is suing the very board she is seeking.

    Now there’s word on the street of the council candidates who never voted in any past elections thinking they know everything necessary to perform the jobs. Then word drops there will be persons joining the council with vague pasts who also never got involved.

    The system is so broken we have a mayor who spends his time playing with kids and taking political junkets to far off lands on communist money with the public not being informed until he tweets something.

    “Bobbie Tibbetts”? That sounds like a southern candidate for sheriff.

    There is a public document, voter registration, showing that he does not live in SW District. Why is there not an ethics hearing? Why is State Attorney not acting?

    Great question! I have asked a couple of councilors to file an ethics complaint. One person suggested that Selberg pay back the salary of the months he wasn’t living in his district, great idea!
