Bjorn Skogquist's problematic conflicting statements and other oddities:
"Bjorn formally resigned from Windego in 2005 in hopes to clear any conflict of interest", Alyssa Baguss, Windego Park Administrator, anoka.wordpress.com/2007
"It's no secret I am a member of the Windego Park Society", said Skogquist Anoka Union 6-18-08 direct quote from city council meeting 6-16-08
Baguss and Bjorn need to get their story straight. The public gets uneasy when mayors and their non-profits are not trustworthy. There is the natural tendency to doubt other statements as well. In fact you risk the whole operation coming under scrutiny.
At the 6-16-08 city council meeting Bjorn Skogquist complained, "Last December council took away the ability for them (Windego Park Society) to claim they had a site plan".
The Anoka Union reported 12-28-07, "The motion not to renew the site plan with variances was made by Mayor Bjorn Skogquist, seconded by Freeburg and unanimously approved."
Maybe Skogquist statements need to be fact checked. It's difficult for him to keep all this stuff straight. Maybe we could get an intern for the mayor. Someone who's a stickler for accuracy and veracity.
Eric Skogquist stated (Jan 28,2008 council worksession, pg. 8 of 20) that, "the car show was no longer operated by WPS but are now providing help and are now a recipient of money." What's up with that?
One of the mayor's non-profits was running the mayor's other non-profit? Both of which come before mayor and council for approvals and use of public property?
Yikes! Both of these groups also "collect donations".
