According to this fluff piece over at the Pioneer Press, Burnsville’s illustrious shithead mayor Elizabeth Kautz is going to take over as President of the US Conference of Mayors. What I don’t understand is how this is news at all. We already knew that she’d be taking over but now we need a reminder and some sort of additional fluff because she’s going to waste even more Burnsville taxpayer time and effort for an additional 6 months?
The article states that she will be spending three to four hours a week working for the group and because Burnsville cannot afford a personal staff member to assist her in this task, one has been assigned by the group for her. It goes on to praise her for being the first suburban mayor to attain this level in the group, something that absolutely no one gives a flying fuck about but her.
The best part of the entire article comes when she is quoted as saying, “To have a small city reach this level of leadership is very rare. There’s a reason for that. When I’m given an assignment, I deliver.”
Oh be still my beating heart! I assume she’s talking about being assigned the task, by herself, of creating the Burnsville Performing Arts Center and letting it run into the ground–all on the shoulders of the taxpayers. Perhaps she means wanting a stupid fucking crosswalk in front of her condo so that people can go from one empty set of storefronts to another. Maybe she meant hanging flower baskets and Christmas lights along a road stuffed with traffic because she wants the area to look more attractive to those sitting in their cars for 45 minutes while they wait for yet another traffic light to go green?
Well, she didn’t mention any of the above in her interview but she did “hint” that economic development would play a big role–something which has been a huge disaster for her in Burnsville–well at least from everyone else’s viewpoint at least.
What do you think about this pointless fluff piece in the Pioneer Press about Kautz’s ascension to the highest level of an organization that doesn’t mean fucking jack shit? Whatever you think about Kautz and her “presidency” go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear what you have to say.
