Carmel revealed that Bieter formed a political action committee to oppose the initiative, even funding the PAC with his reelection campaign money. “Democratic operative” Jesse Maldonado previously told the Idaho PRess that Bieter was not involved in the “Save our library” campaign. Bieter now contends Maldonado simply “misspoke.”
The GUARDIAN is concerned about the claims of City Councilors that they are listening to citizens and want to hear from them regarding a plan to build a library costing at least $85 million.
Tuesday’s council agenda shows a payment of $641,243 to architect Moshe Safdie set for approval. Seems counterintuitive to make payments of hundreds of thousands to an architect when the project is still up in the air and the council is awaiting a vote of citizens.
Maybe they just misspoke.

“I’m not saying our mayor is a liar
of his transparency I’m starting to tire
The truth is showing
’cause his nose is growing
And his pants are surely on fire!”
