Our sister CALDWELL GUARDIAN and editor Paul Alldredge are putting some heat on the Canyon Commishes and it looks like the local CANYON DAILY Paper is siding up with the guy they once dismissed as a mere “blogger.”
Like the senior BOISE GUARDIAN, Alldredge has gained traction with hard hitting stories bringing to light some of the actions of local government that politicos don’t want challenged. In the current case at hand, Alldredge calls for a vote of the citizens on the issue of long term debt for a new jail.
When the Idaho Press Tribune suggested “all parties” come to the table, the Commishes responded with a guest opinion essentially claiming “all parties” (meaning politicos) were already at the table and anyone else didn’t count.
When it comes to spending large sums of taxpayer dollars for debt, both GUARDIANS agree: “Politicos can ask, but CITIZENS decide.”
