Because of the timidity of St Paul Charter Commission Chair Richard Kramer, Charter Commission Member Chuck Repke resigned yesterday. Repke’s reason for quitting is not reflected in the language of the resignation letter, but in a private conversation, which contained many expletives and plenty of disparaging comments about Kramer, Repke made his sentiments clear.
He (Kramer) is best characterized as having an obstinate attitude and operating like a dictator which as a public official is embarrassing behavior. This is something people should know about before they ever appoint him to another public position. He currently serves as a member of the Metropolitan Council.
This leaves the issue of Ranked Choice Voting being on the November ballot in doubt, which is a major deal especially since the votes to pass it are there.
