Sioux Falls City Councilors at Dem Forum • 4/5/2019

Janet Brekke, Theresa Stehly and Pat Starr bring their Sioux Falls SD citizen first messages to a joint Friday Democratic Forum lunch crowd on April 5, 2019.

The past TWO Parks Board meetings have been videotaped, you can’t watch them HERE under the RECENT tab. There has never been a formal press release or announcement of this to the public or city council. I found out from a personal email from Jason Reisdorfer.

Democratic Forum to move to new spot

The problem is they don’t know yet. They were informed this morning that the VFW will no longer be open during lunch hours starting immediately. Forum has been held at the VFW on Fridays at Noon for a very long time. They are searching for a new home, until than they hope to find a temporary place for the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for updates.

Democratic Forum – Friday the 15th speaker changes

The speaker arrangement will change tomorrow at Forum. Due to a family emergency Rose Grant will not be able to attend. Cory Heidelberger will speak in her place, and Jeff Barth will remain on the docket also.

UPDATE: Mayor Mike Huether – DEM FORUM (4/27/18)

UPDATE: I don’t think we caught it in the video (we have difficulties with the wi-fi in this building) but the mayor was telling the same story about leaving to all the news media lately and was continuing the story at Forum (to a lot of snickers in the crowd). When it got to about 12:50, Jim stood up and reminded the mayor that he needed to take questions. Mike said he was going to finish his ‘story’ first and if Jim didn’t like it, he was going to leave. Mike continued for another 10 minutes without taking any questions. At the end Jim said out loud, “Thanks for the filibuster mayor.”
