Joe, Do You Have Any Questions?

Ya know, after years of doing this I thought I’d seen it all, but even I was miffed after listening to the March 19 city of Crystal work session.

The work session was to appoint members to serve on the Blue Line Extension groups (of course I hope the Blue Line never comes). One of the people applying was our old friend former council member John Budziezewski.

After answering a few questions from the council where Johnny B gave his standards answers of how much he loves the light rail and the great “need” we have for public transportation (laugh, laugh), he then turns to another former councilman Joe Selton who was in the audience and said to him “Joe, do you have any questions for me?”

Huh? Why does Mr. Selton, a member of the audience, get to ask a question? Selton mumbled something about how often Johnny B uses public transit. Who really cares?

Now clearly this was a set up. Selton was there specifically to ask Budziezewski a question. I wonder for what purpose? Are you telling me it’s just a coincidence that Selton was there, Johnny B asked him a question, and Selton just happened to have a question ready, and Johnny B had a ready-made answer?

Feel free to listen to the work session HERE. Budziezewski asks Selton a question a 1:15:10.

I have to say that I’m scratching my head. I don’t get what the point was of this. Does Budziezewski really think that having Selton ask him a prearranged question increases the chances of him being on this committee?

Budziezewski is doing what ever he can to stay relevant. He applied for the Charter Commission and didn’t get on it, then he applied for the Employee Review Board and didn’t get it. My guess is he won’t be chosen for this either. There is a new opening on the Charter Commission I bet he applies. I personally think he wants to run in 2016 in Ward 3. We’re going to have to start calling him Rasputin!
