We haven’t seen much in the way of controversy in the upcoming city election.
There have been plenty of calls for CHANGE, LISTENING, BE KIND, LESS ARROGANCE, RESPONSIBLE SPENDING, but little in specific allegations or cures.
Here are some issues we would like to see addressed:
–Increase impact fees to slow the growth and make developers pay for the issues they create.
–More than 150 coppers drive cars home every day. Are they all really that necessary?
–Fire academy ate up our bond money and CWI has just created a fire academy. Do we need both?
–Library spending is still in the budget. Doesn’t that assume the current administration is planning on winning the election?
–Why no discussion about the industrial park lease deal that favors the Salt Lake developer?
–Will Boise Schools have another “Kindness Carnival” for West Boise school students to hear Loren McLean or other candidates as they did for Dave Bieter in the North End?
–Totally legal, but any thoughts about firefighters wearing union firefighter shirts campaigning door-to-door for Bieter? Would coppers knock on doors for him or other candidates?
With seven in the race for mayor, we predict a runoff is inevitable. The real race today is for number two, assuming Bieter garners the top spot, but no majority.
Interesting how untrue the “non-partisan” portrayal is when it comes to the Boise MAYOR RACE.
