I have been waiting for Rex to return from the Orange Juice state to actually campaign in person (still haven’t seen him). He is is relying on the ‘R’ behind his name, a few yard signs and this recent mailer to put him over the top.
Got a really good chuckle out of his ‘VISION’
Just go to sfmeetings.org and type in Rex Rolfing, and see his voting record for yourself.
Fiscally responsible. WOW! In the 8 years (2008-16) Rex served on the city council he voted for EVERY single fee and tax increase. He also voted for millions in TIFs and bonding, including the Indoor Pool, Huether Tennis Center ($500K), Administration building that we did not need and the The Denty that has never paid it’s mortgage EVER through revenue.
Rex wouldn’t know what fiscal responsibility was if it hit him like a Jesus snow plow.
He also did ZERO to improve workforce while he served on the council, except voting for an expenditure to put billboards of the former mayor’s face all over Minneapolis.
He also followed the marching orders of his former boss and police chief by ignoring our drug and crime issues for 8 years.
Besides the glaring hypocrisy of Rex’s vision, we also forget that;
â€¢ He trumped up false ethics violations towards councilor Stehly, in which he had a freak out session where the puck under the gavel went flying thru the air. He even made light of it later by pretending the bone above he is chewing on in the picture was a gavel and started rapping it on the table like a gavel after covering the end in tin foil.
â€¢ Rex said publicly he doesn’t want his contact information on mailings even though his city owned council email address and phone number are public information.
â€¢ Lastly, his only (non)accomplishment on the council was passing a silly ordinance about having a majority instead of a plurality in council races, which only makes elections more expensive for both taxpayers and candidates (hopefully the city council will overturn this soon, but I see they are waiting until after the election so they won’t make him look bad-chickensh*ts).
Let’s face it. Rex is NOT fiscally responsible, he is NOT ethical, he does NOT believe in government transparency and he is willing to throw anyone under the bus he doesn’t agree with.
There is whole host of other things I could say about this VOID of leadership, but I won’t. I will leave you with a paragraph from a postcard I also got today from his competitor, Kelly Sullivan;
She pretty much sums up Rex Rolfing and his ilk in one sentence. Living in a bouncy house.
Do as I did as a D13 voter, fill only one box out for the House Race. Kelly Sullivan.
