Re: Brenda Konkel to join Mayor Soglin's Administration?

radboy, what is the first rule when you find yourself in a hole?

the conversation is in bad taste. I see where you are coming from, it is sort-of a public issue.

Re: Brenda Konkel to join Mayor Soglin's Administration?

I was just reporting a conversation that I had with someone "close" to the mayor's office. I think he interviewed her because she applied and it was easier to say yes than no. I maybe overstated that they "got a good laugh." The person I was talking to probably meant that they were befuddled that Konkel really thought there was any possibility that they could or would hire her. The person told me that this interview happened after she had already insulted the new council, saying that they were at best average and that none of them were leaders.

So, if I offended anyone with adding too much color to this story then I apologize. But you do have to admit that there was no way Soglin would seriously consider hiring her and that it is laughable to think otherwise.

Just the troll we all keep feeding, I guess. I wish it was enough of a lie to get him investigated but it ain't. Stating that a city government has the time and inclination to play out an elaborate and hurtful practical joke on an upright, active citizen when they're supposed to be doing their jobs is pretty damn scummy.

Re: Brenda Konkel to join Mayor Soglin's Administration?

The reply was "no, they were just humoring her and got a good laugh that she really thinks it is remotely possible."

I am going with the "It ain't libel if its true" defense.
:D

Are you calling Brenda Konkel a liar? You owe me an apology. But I won't hold my breath.

Does anyone here (except Brenda) really think Soglin was seriously considering hiring her as one of his aides?

Re: Brenda Konkel to join Mayor Soglin's Administration?

It's true, I was one of the 14 (out of 130) people who got an interview according to the rejection letter I got. Didn't get the job, but it looks like he made some great hires a few weeks ago. So no, I won't be joining his administration.

(Sorry, not trying to feed the troll, just set the record straight.)

Jason, I am not a troll. A rabble rouser yes, but not a troll. And God forbid anyone does any rabble rousing on this dusty back water that you so ably mis-manage. Also, it is not as if Brenda Konkel does not mix it up on her blog everyday. Check out her hit piece today on the alder that has now twice cleaned her clock. http://www.forwardlookout.com/2011/05/a ... vite/11003

Also, Konkel job interviewing with Soglin is true. Not that you give a rat's ass about ferreting out the truth...

Re: Brenda Konkel to join Mayor Soglin's Administration?

I say Soglin should hire her. Konkel hasn't worked a real eight to five job. Besides she'd have to follow orders from a mayor and work with other alders "diplomatically." That alone is worth front row seating.

I'm sorry.... but did you just write "if true..."?

It's on its face not true. Radboy wrote it. He's a troll. Check the record.

Brenda Konkel to join Mayor Soglin's Administration?

Someone "close" to the Soglin team told me that they interviewed Brenda Konkel for a job. They even asked her for references according to my source. I asked this person if the mayor was really considering hiring Konkel? The reply was "no, they were just humoring her and got a good laugh that she really thinks it is remotely possible."
