David Klinger, the vocal advocate of leaving “The Cabin” in place and having citizens vote on the library funding, sent this note to the GUARDIAN:
“Dr.Robert Kustra is the former lieutenant governor of the State of Illinois and the recently-retired president of Boise State University. Today he endorsed our efforts to put the proposed Boise events center/library and the downtown commercial center/ballpark to a citizen vote.
His endorsement underscores our contention that these are two highly-expensive municipal projects with major corollary impacts that are being pushed by a growth-obsessed city government … both of which require much greater citizen/taxpayer validation before they should proceed.”
Kustra joins a growing number of officials who have come to agree with the GUARDIAN efforts to seek voter approval for major public works projects.
