We saw no surprises when it came to Boise candidates and issues in Tuesday’s election.
Today we got some precinct results in Boise and there weren’t even any trends that popped up there. The turnout of nearly 30% of registered voters was certainly good to see, but we simply cannot buy claims that election results were any huge mandate or approval for more of the same.
Team Dave has certainly proven itself as a major force –perhaps the most powerful organization in the state– when comes to raising cash, timing ground breaking of new buildings, and getting out the vote.
We will be looking at attempts at social engineering through use and misuse of streets as Boise planners aim to cut street capacity and “get people out of their cars.”
We are still concerned the Foothills Levy is overly broad, but it was the top vote-getter in the entire race.
