Will there ever be a day when
people of public service can make
it thru the elected time, and not
be tempted by doing the wrong thing?
Over the years, I have found my
self more cynical than I would like
to be. But life seems to keep getting
more devious, so it is hard not to be
Even with taking what the media
writes and cut it in half (like the old
saying, believe quarter what you hear,
and half of what you see), it still
The past 6 months have been
less than admiral with the
3 local county officials.
Boundary county Prosecuting Attorney
has been less than up to par with
doing right by the local citizens. Which
a lot of us, blamed a lot on the judge.
But come right down to the nity gritty
it was the P.A. that faltered. Being
pushed into a court case he should
have taken up on his own. And then
doing a lesser job of it, when he finally
was dragged to going to court.
Then there is the Kootenai County, with
their mess. Officials who are suppose to
be protecting the rights of the people against
sex abuse, harassment and etc. Yet, they
don't see the damage of passing sexual
emails to each other on county computers.
Now our own Bonner County P.A.
is under the microscope over taxes.
All of these gentlemen have been in
office for many years. 20+ for most.
And you keep hoping the media is
wrong. That they are making a mountain
out of a mole hill. But sadly, it doesn't
turn out like that.
For years even beyond my time, the
government, especially the locals have
been questionable. And you figure in
time, with all kinds of electronics and
etc. that things would change. The more
that get caught doing it wrong, the more
that come down the line later. Sad. So
very sad. Especially when some of these
men were very good men. And to a point
still are. Personally, to friends and family.
So where did it go wrong? Was it greed?
Was it power? Or is it just indifference?
