At age 25, Signe Lindell received her doctorate and landed a teaching job at Kent State University in Ohio.

It was an auspicious beginning for Lindell, the first person in her family to attend college. She had a tenure-track position on a pretty campus where enrollment was strong.

    I am telling you Cove, that many board members will ignore the law to come to an outcome.
    BTW educate yourself and stop ranting. The mayor appoints the members of boards. They are rubberstamped by the council (unfortunately) but I don't think the council has much knowledge of many of these appointees before hand.
    Board members who speak out and oppose the majority are often replaced by Coss--another reason we don't see good board decisions.
    Also I noticed you didn't slam Dimas---your bias is showing!

    Rich political insider? Greedy real estate agent? Do you even know Sig? Have you ever met her? I know her, and I can tell you, you couldn't be more wrong. Another commenter on here used the words, "honesty and integrity" to describe her. Those words are dead-on. I personally disagree with Sig on a number of political views, but if I still lived in SF, I'd vote for her in a heartbeat - in fact, I'd be working on her campaign. Honesty and integrity in politics, and sometimes in life, are rare attributes, and Sig's got them in spades. I rather feel sorry for her opponent - he doesn't stand a chance, in my opinion. Go Sig!

    It's interesting that Milan Simonich doesn't give Michael Segura (a.k.a. Rockstar505) the same kid-glove treatment that he gave to Signe Lindell. Is the fix in for another Coss crony?

    Lindell is apparently against the Super Mayor charter amendment #9, so I've got to give her credit for that.

    [wink]

    Sounds like a hippie idealist to me.

    "... one of the few people on any board who consistently applies the rules fairly rather than gaming the system for an outcome."

    So you are telling me that most of the appointed board and commissions are full of dishonest ill-willed crooks. Didn"t Patti and the other Councilors appoint those crooks?
    I'm shocked.

    Cove, you have told people you are not registered and will not vote. You have no idea about Signe Lindell--one of the few people on any board who consistently applies the rules fairly rather than gaming the system for an outcome.
    As for Segura, he mentioned several DWIs (in the past) but failed to mention the bankruptcy caused by tax debt. He didn't pay his employee the Affordable Wage or write off the difference off as a contrbution in kind. He apparently hasn't paid much attention to the changes in that law. In addition , he seemed clueless that the state has a medical marijuana program. Some of his statements concerning his stake in this community come across as thinly veiled homophobic or racist comments IMO.
    Go to the forums! Educate yourself rather than engaging in a ranting diatribe not a based on the facts.

    The more times I read this story the more violin elevator music I hear. Really, are there any media literate people out there that see the insane sappy slant being put on this rich political insider?
    "She attacked school ..." vomit. What,the rest of didn't and who cares about the local kids who couldn't afford school? They can just "Sig's" yard work or house cleaning.
    32 grand ....grassroots?
    "Four dead is O-hi-o"
    A greedy real estate agent, the kind of person that ruined this city for locals; another lily-white "Ethics" expert specializing in "planning" other people's lives; someone who now wants to get paid for there so-call volunteerism; and now wants to be City Councilor... Please Vote no on the charter.

    Jesus, where do I start ... what a ridiculous valentine. Doesn't the New Mexican have any reporters left there beside Terrell?
