The Boise GUARDIAN has inspired a sister blog site to the west known as the Caldwell GUARDIAN.
“We plan to be a government watchdog in Canyon County in the same fashion as the well established Boise GUARDIAN,” said Paul Alldredge, editor of the new on line publication.
Alldredge cited a timidity on the part of local media to uncover questionable–or even illegal–actions by local government. He said it makes for better government when elected officials know there is someone looking over their shoulder who is not afraid to tell all.
While not officially affiliated with the Boise GUARDIAN, Alldredge has talked frequently with Dave Frazier, editor of the well known Boise blog.
Stories currently on the site include:
–Taking the Canyon commishes to task when they moved licensing offices out to Caldwell Blvd. where parking is at a premium.
–A developer proposal to build a city hall in a shopping mall in downtown Caldwell…like the BoDo library scam in Boise.
–A Caldwell city councilor attends city council meetings via phone FROM HAWAII.
