When Ada County Republican voters told Commish Dave Case to “hit the road,” he took them literally and has now decided to run for the Ada County Highway District seat he vacated when he ran for the Ada County Commission.
Word on the street has it that he is just looking for a good benefit package at taxpayer expense. His PERSI (Public Employee Retirement) will be based on the $100K-plus county salary from the county and ACHD has a better health plan.
He will be running against incumbent ACHD Commish Kent Goldthorpe.
We find it ironic that he was a former ACHD Commish, his primary opponent, Sharon Ullman, has been on and off the county commission repeatedly and neither one will call it quits. You can find the Case candidacy papers HERE.
ACHD commishes serve one of five districts and voters must live within that district to vote. The result is 80% of citizens are disenfranchised. Translation: a candidate can get elected with 51% of 20% of the eligible votes if there are two candidates. Translation of the translation: it takes only 10% of the county-wide ballots cast plus 1 vote to get elected.
