Andi Elliott: The Dawning Light of Day in Jefferson County

October 9th, 2012 by Halli

By Andi Elliott

I shook my head when I learned of the taxpayer funded cell phone for the Sheriff’s wife for I knew from personal experience that this was such a small matter compared to the overall picture in Jefferson County. The “cover-up” was equally telling. It’s clear that County Commissioners refuse to represent the people and, shovel in hand, continuing digging a deeper hole but documents don’t lie. And questions are multiplying exponentially.

And as folks continue to delve into county records (and the county continues to make it more difficult to access public records), indisputable evidence of mismanagement and wrongdoing surfaces much as parts of a dead body eventually rise to the top of a pond.

As I read the Post Register article, You Can Fight City Hall, about former Idaho Falls City Attorney Storer, I find remarkable parallels to our situation here in Jefferson County. And folks are conducting their own “forensic audit” of county documents and are finding that we taxpayers have been played for fools and treated as peasantry.

General elections are less than a month away…some of our officials at the helm of our county government are running unopposed. It is time that “we the servants” exert our power in our county government and at some point we’ll “get a government t?hat accomplishes the many good things” that should be incumbent upon a responsible governing body and exposes those that have sold out to money, power, and greed. Jefferson County, are we ready to reclaim out rightful place, or shall we continue to languish in a cess pool of corruption?
