Republican insider Mike Tracy has used personal funds to send out a post card urging voters to oppose the two bonds on the November 5 ballot in Boise.
Tracy noted the sophistication of the campaign waged by Team Dave to get the bonds passed and decided to send his own message to conservative voters.
He counters the Bieter sales pitch of “$1 a month” saying, “Democrat Boise Mayor Dave Bieter and the Democrat controlled Boise City Council are trying to raise your taxes by $50 Million over the next 20 years. Make no mistake – THIS IS A BIG PROPERTY TAX INCREASE!”
The disclaimer on the card reads:
“Paid for by Mike Tracy | P.O. Box 154 | Boise, ID 83701
Former Communication Director for U.S. Senator Larry Craig • Former GOP District 18
Legislative Chair • Former Information Director for the Idaho Farm Bureau”
The GUARDIAN has also received a complaint from a voter claiming the campaign in favor of the Bieter Bonds is making robocalls which the citizen claims may be illegal. Our reader did some research and said the following:
“The original message does not give any contact information. It just says the call is from Dave Bieter and that the message was paid for by Keep Boise Safe and Liveable, Carolyn Boyce, Treasurer, but gives no info on how to contact them. The originating call number is 208 501-8379 and displays Out of Area on the caller ID.”
