Today’s Idaho Statesman has a damning EDITORIAL about Boise City’s ill advised $60,000 PR effort to “educate voters” about a constitutional amendment aimed at denying citizens their constitutional right to vote on airport debt.
The GUARDIAN provides the truth in a series of CONSTITUTION stories posted in recent weeks…and we do it for FREE! As voters become aware of the HJR5 airport amendment as well as two others, they are becoming leery or the motivation behind the amendments.
Even House Majority leader Mike Moyle flipped on supporting the amendment after voting in favor during the 2010 session. The Republican Party opposed HJR5 at its state convention this summer.
Democratic Guv candidate Keith Allred voiced strong support and said he would vote for HJR5 and two other proposals despite the fact they all seek to take away citizen oversight of public debt at airports, public hospitals, and electric utilities.
