Bloem: “… Bring the Facts”

Filed under: Probable Cause — Tags: , , — Bill @ 9:58 am

Coeur d’Alene City Councilman Mike Kennedy

At the April 17, 2012, meeting of the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, City Council, citizen Frank Orzell addressed the Council regarding Recall CDA’s effort to recall Mayor Sandi Bloem, Councilman Mike Kennedy, Councilman Deanna Goodlander, and Councilman Woody McEvers.   During his presentation, Orzell stated,  “Fear of intimidation and retribution is another indication of the [city’s] dysfunction.  Small business owners and city staff have expressed their desire to sign our petition, but very often also talk about fear of reprisal, even loss of employment, and that is difficult for us to ignore.”

Here is the YouTube excerpt of Mayor Sandi Bloem’s response to Orzell’s concern about intimidation and retribution.  Note that at the end, Bloem states, “I believe there’s not one person sitting at this dais that would do anything of the kind [resort to fear or intimidation against those involved in the recall effort].  So I would appreciate it if you’d bring the facts.”

Okay.  Here are facts.  (more…)

Recall Update

Filed under: Probable Cause — Tags: — Bill @ 8:24 am

Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes has issued a press release announcing some interim and approximate results of the first day’s verification process of the Coeur d’Alene election recall petitions.

Rather than focusing on the preliminary first-day percentages, we’d like to encourage all electors to pay particular attention to the principal reason for rejection thus far:  Electors signed the recall petitions who have a Coeur d’Alene mailing address but do not reside inside the City of Coeur d’Alene(more…)

Councilman Deanna Goodlander

[

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho’s imitation news/views/skewspaper, the Coeur d’Alene Press, published an article this morning in which Coeur d’Alene city councilman Deanna Goodlander offered her opinion of Recall CdA supporters.   Quoting from the article: “She [Goodlander] said it will be nice not having signature gatherers waving signs on street corners anymore, which doesn’t make an attractive sight for visitors who flock to Coeur d’Alene in the summer.”

Let’s consider that.  (more…)
