That Sioux Falls paper has done voters the favor of archiving its livestream of Thursday’s statewide ballot question forum. That video features, in order:
- [17:30] Amendment T—end gerrymandering with independent redistricting: Matt Sibley, SD Farmers Union, in favor; Rep. Jim Stalzer (R-11/Sioux Falls) against.
- [48:20] Initiated Measure 22—real 36% rate cap on payday loans: Steve Hildebrand, SF café owner, for.
- [1:07:15] Amendment U—unlimited payday loan interest disguised as fake 18% rate cap: Steve Hildebrand, against.
- [1:28:10] Amendment V—open nonpartisan primary: Rick Knobe, radio host, for; Will Mortenson, Republican activist, against.
- [1:57:05] Referred Law 19—Incumbent Protection Plan: Cory Allen Heidelberger, against.
- [2:11:30] Referred Law 20—youth minimum wage: Cory Allen Heidelberger, against.
- [2:28:40] Amendment S—crime victims bill of rights: Jason Glodt, lawyer, for; Ryan Kolbeck, lawyer, against.
- [2:49:20] Initiated Measure 22—Anti-Corruption Act: Darrell Solberg, business owner, for; Ben Lee, paid Koch Brothers/Americans for Progress propagandist, against.
That Sioux Falls paper’s video is complete, but is also a bit fuzzy and marked up. Cameraman Bruce Danielson was on scene as well and captured a little clearer video of my presentations on Referred Law 19 and Referred Law 20. Cameraman Bruce does moderator Sarah Jennings and the rest of us the favor of capturing her face on Camera #2 instead of that Sioux Falls paper’s steady rear shot. Cameraman Bruce can do nothing to change the fact that, even seated, I wave my arms with great enthusiasm any time I speak.
Share those videos, help your neighbors learn about the ballot measures… and get ready to vote, starting Friday, when your county auditor will have ballots for early voting available!
