About 60 concerned citizens and a handful of Ada County EMS paramedics got together for the GUARDIAN Town Hall meeting at the library Monday to discuss the status of ambulance service in the county and city.
Sadly, the Boise Firefighters union accused the GUARDIAN of bias on the issue and boycotted the meeting after previously attempting to get as many members and friends as possible to attend. The entire city council and Team Dave were also invited but decided to stay away.
There was a medical doctor, former Ada County Sheriff, a former EMS official from Colorado and Kansas who now lives in Boise, Commish Sharon Ullman, and a bunch of concerned citizens asking intelligent questions…some of which went unanswered due to the City of Boise boycott.
There was coverage by Channel 7, Channel 2, and the Boise Weekly. We don’t know if the Daily Paper attended or not. The GUARDIAN will try to get a link to a video of the meeting for those who care to see and hopefully hear the discussion.
The BOISE WEEKLY has a well done report on the meeting.
