Ward 3 in Rapid City, currently has one candidate for city council, Jerry Wright. Jerry is a nice guy. But it was under his watch that all the nonsense at the landfill took place, and had been taking place for many years...enough that the statute of limitations is the only thing preventing prosecutors from filing more charges. Criminal acts were taking place under his nose and he did not report them to law enforcement. Rather, he sent a memo asking the perps to kindly stop.
E-mail evidence, which became public during the Kooiker Censure demonstrate that when it was brought to Wright's attention more forcefully, he interviewed one of the accused and asked him if he was on the take. The defendant replied that he wasn't. Thus, Jerry's ass was apparently covered.
We need more competence in Ward 3. Time prevents me from running, or I would. Please volunteer. I'll help anyone running against Jerry Wright.
