Andi Elliott: It Happened Again Last Night…

April 12th, 2010 by Halli

It happened again last night. My husband and I were attending the political forum at the Civic Auditorium. Someone unknown to me approached and asked if I were a Jefferson County resident. They proceeded to tell me that Jefferson County has a terrible reputation in the state for corruption. What??? This was particularly disturbing as I was told the same thing two days before while we were at Governor Otter’s campaign stop at the Riverbend Ranch.

When we moved to Idaho 9 years ago, we literally could have lived anyplace in the country. We chose Idaho because of its historic stance for States Rights and the predominant Conservative culture.

Over the years, I have been told that I am a “paradox” because of my involvement in animal welfare and yet a Conservative. (No, Prosecutor Dunn, I am not an animal rights activist as you persist in trying to “paint” me.) And so, along with my lifelong Conservative ideology comes a strong sense of personal responsibility… taking care of your family, providing proper care for your animals, working to improve your community, state, and country and in keeping with this philosophy comes the expectation of having our elected officials upholding our laws…all of them.

Which leads to the purpose of this editorial…why does Jefferson County repeatedly refuse to enforce the Animal Cruelty laws enacted by the Idaho Legislature? Could this selective enforcement of laws contribute to the poor reputation of our county? Perhaps a PR agent is needed under these circumstances!
