Collier-Wise Running for Vermillion City Council: Blog Sense for Better Government!

While Steve Sibson fights the GOP Establishment, ObamaCare, and Greek globalists in Mitchell, let's talk about a blogger who may actually win an election by discussing issues relevant to her constituents. Kelsey Collier-Wise is running for the Vermillion City Council!

Collier-Wise is a mom and part-time instructor who's been involved in a number of Vermillion non-profits. She has contributed her brain and blog power to DakotaWomen, writing about numerous state and national political issues. However, unlike Sibson, Collier-Wise knows how to turn from her favorite higher-level issues and focus on practical local issues directly affecting her neighbors in the community she understands and loves.

Of course, astute readers will notice on her info page that Collier-Wise uses the word "sustainable." That word is a clear signal to all patriots that Collier-Wise is part of Agenda 21 and plans to turn Vermillion into a Marxist dystopia. But you know, one of Collier-Wise's most vehement blog opponents has said that the status quo is inherently bad and change is inherently good. So changing Vermillion to a sustainable paradise must be a good thing, right?

Blogospherians will have fun with that preceding paragraph. Regular Vermillion voters will see a good neighbor who knows her stuff and vote for Kelsey Collier-Wise on June 5 (or maybe sooner: early voting starts April 20th!). They may even help her out by volunteering, hosting house parties (no, not the USD kind of house party), and donating to the DakotaWomen PAC.

    So a SDGOP tyranny that implements Obama's government enforced healthcare while saying we need to replace Obama with Romney, who implemented Obamacare in Massachussetts before Obama became president, that will be funded with the same debt riddened methods that Greece has used is not relevant? Now I am out of breath.

    "However, unlike Sibson, Collier-Wise knows how to turn from her favorite higher-level issues and focus on practical local issues directly affecting her neighbors in the community she understands and loves."

    Like enforming the citizens of Mitchell, prior to voting, that Vehle's City Manager idea is an Agenda 21 ploy to remove cities from their state constitution.

    Davison County should be working with the United Nations initiative to prepare for the effects of climate change.

  4. Kelsey 2012.03.29

    Thanks, Cory! Depending on who you ask, Vermillion is already a Marxist dystopia, so maybe I am just upholding the status quo? ;)

    Speaking of things you can count on: any mention of Sibby will inevitably lead to a string of comments dominating by all things Sibby. It's kind of comforting.

    "Vermillion is already a Marxist dystopia"

    Kelsey, the city of Vermillion owns the only liquor store, right?

  6. Kelsey 2012.03.29

    Indeed it does.

  7. Bill Fleming 2012.03.29

    That shouldn't matter to Sib. He makes his own kool-aide.

    Welcome to the light of day Kelsey. Angie was the courageous one to emerge from anonymity first, then Carmen, now you. I think Angie will tell you I'm nice and don't bite. But darn, now you have to be nice too. And don't expunge your blog of previous crassness. I still plan to order a DW coffee mug for my desk in Pierre from your Trash Talking Tonya's store...

    I should be getting royalties on your use of that phrase. Peace.

  9. larry kurtz 2012.03.29

    and jesus said: pay me the royalties.

  10. Steve Hickey 2012.03.29

    Oh lighten up Larry.

  11. larry kurtz 2012.03.29

    Your ilk is part of the reason this interested party wears a sidearm, Hickey.

  12. Bill Fleming 2012.03.29

    Yow. Heavy, Kurtz. Too heavy, I think.

    I see that SD was the first state to pass the "Stand Your Ground" law.

    And now, apparantly, some (in Florida) are arguing that it's okay to pursue a person and confront him, then if he punches you in the nose for it, you can blow him away.

    I think it's time to back away from talk like that.

    Your handgun comment is out of line in my opinion.

    Not funny.

  13. Kelsey 2012.03.29

    I've actually been un-anonymous on DW for a number of years, Steve. I just figured no one cared enough to point it out :)

    As to royalties, I would be more than happy to donate proceeds from TTT merchandise to a mutually agreed upon charity. You definitely deserve credit for crafting such a masterful phrase!

  14. Mandy 2012.03.29

    I guess I don't think you have to run for office to "emerge from anonymity." Going on the news seems pretty unanonymous to me :)

  15. larry kurtz 2012.03.29

    A sidearm needn't be a handgun, Hun: taking fencing lessons in Santa Fe. Way faster than a firearm in close proximity.

  16. Steve Hickey 2012.03.29

    It's okay Bill. I know where I'm going. No actually, for years I've said I'm bullet proof until God is done with me here. I do concede that the problem with being bullet proof is that the people standing around me may not be. :-) Here's the deal, if Larry was in a burning building I'd go in after him.

    He needs to relax and get some help for that deep seated anger.

  17. Steve Hickey 2012.03.29

    Kelsey, let's donate proceeds to the Human Fund. (Are you old enough to remember that Seinfeld episode?)

  18. Kelsey 2012.03.29

    Ha -- yes. My dad actually gave us cards certifying that a donation to The Human Fund had been made in our names for Christmas this year. Well, actually for Festivus. "The Human Fund: Money for People."

  19. Steve Hickey 2012.03.29

    Now, just to clarify... are we talking all biological humans or just born humans? ;-)

  20. Kelsey 2012.03.29

    I'm pretty sure The Human Fund helps humans who haven't even been thought of yet -- they're that good.

    Cesar Chavez Champions of Change on 50th anniversary: live.

  22. Steve Sibson 2012.03.29

    So Kelsey, how much did the the city of Vermillion lose in revenue when the federal government bribed South Dakota with highway dollars to raise the drinking age to 21?

  23. larry kurtz 2012.03.29

    Pick a lane, Steve: you're weaving.

    From the Mitchell Republic: "Some money allocated to projects in South Dakota under a federal highway bill passed in 2005 could be rescinded, or clawed back, under a new bill working its way through Congress."

  24. Kelsey 2012.03.29

    Interesting question. Certainly the days of 3.2 bars in Vermillion are somewhat legendary, but with that came a lot of drunken young Nebraskans going back and forth over the border. I think we've done alright, though -- we have had thirty-some years to recover ;)

  25. Steve Sibson 2012.03.29

    So state level, national level, and even international level politics can impact a city, right?

  26. D.E. Bishop 2012.03.29

    Hmm. Sounds like Agenda 21 and the Homosexual Agenda are very similar mythical beasts. Makes 'em scarier!!!
