Candidate forums

lwv

This information made its way to us from the League of Women Voters I thought I would share

We have an Ada County Commissioner candidate forum Wednesday evening, May 11 at the Boise Public Library Auditorium on Capitol Blvd. from 7 to 9 p.m.

All six candidates have agreed to participate.  Dr. Jim Weatherby will moderate the forum. We will take written questions from the audience.

We also have the Supreme Court candidates on Idaho Public Television Friday evening the 6th from 8 to 9.  It will be available to watch on the Idaho PTV  website the next day.

Graffiti

Graffiti, a scourge on our neighborhoods. These images were sent to me and I thought I would share them here. We must come together as a force against tagging. Let’s not let this activity take our our neighborhood.

To accomplish our goal of quick graffiti removal, the City of Boise requests that citizens contact the Boise City Police Department at 377-6790 and file a report as soon as the Graffiti is discovered.

Please take a few minutes to read this information.

If you see graffiti in progress CALL 911

Coming soon to a signal box near you

As the weather heats up it’s time to keep an eye on signal boxes. The vinyl needs warm temperature for the installation. Here is a sneak peek of the Capitol High Box at Goddard and Milwaukee By local artist Danielle Mierzwa
