Andi Elliott: Utility Company Mailing List

December 13th, 2013 by Halli

by Andi Elliott

OK, I have to ask…how many of us would use Rigby’s utility bill mailing list to send out a personal letter even if it were available to us?

And is it even ethical to do so? Please tell me that City Attorney Rob Dunn footed the bill for this mailing. Is there proof that he did so or is this something else that taxpayers unwittingly paid for? The City of Rigby has slightly over 4000 residents and 994 families as of the last census. That’s a lot of families and a whopping postal bill.

I bet the Jefferson Star or the Post Register would have printed his letter at no charge with much greater exposure too…but then most of their audience couldn’t vote in the Rigby elections. Or, wonder why Dunn didn’t send out his public plea in the regular utility bill mailings and save postage. Oh, that’s right. He couldn’t wait that long. The city elections were right around the corner and if Sites and team had won, they promised to investigate city shenanigans. It’s becoming clear now.

You know if Dunn conducted business above board and in full public view he wouldn’t have felt as if he had to personally contact each utility customer saying “Don’t make me an issue in the election”. It’s a good thing he isn’t City Attorney in Idaho Falls…then he’d have to have contacted nearly 21,000 households. Now there’s a whopping postal bill!
