After we posted the story about Boise City Councilors authorizing the mayor to spend up to $150,000 for “sustainability” with no specific plan, readers jumped on the internet to share even more information.
A note indicating the office of “Community Engagement” caught our attention when it revealed the agency within the office of the mayor tripled in size since 2016 with a budget in excess of $2.1 million, prompting the office to be subject of an internal audit.
Another reader enjoyed the STATEMENT OF PURPOSE.
The office seeks to, “foster deeper connections and engagement with citizens of Boise. The Office works to establish a strategic, citizen-centric communication culture within city government that reflects Boise’s vibrant, dynamic and innovative livability, and builds on residents’ high satisfaction with the value of the city services they receive.” To the GUARDIAN that statement has more BS than a Simplot feedlot.
But wait! There’s more! How about “…proactively delivering the right messages to the right people at the right time.”
This begs the question: what are the right messages, who are the right people, and when is the right time?
Do you think that has anything to do with getting Dave Bieter re-elected?
