Competence and a maturing political machine turned out moderate and liberal voters in Boise on Tuesday. City Councilwoman Maryanne Jordan swamped religious activist Brandi Swindell, as voters chose centrism and experience for the grinding work of transportation planning, managing growth, shielding neighborhoods and saving open space. Swindell tried to make the Ten Commandments our signature symbol, but Boiseans are more interested in their broader quality of life than a single stone monument -- Dan Popkey/Statesman here.
Green Libertarian: "Oh yeah, didn't see it mentioned here, but since we talked about her picture and ill-fated campaign here awhile ago, thought I'd mention, the fundi-Babe from Boise went down 70-30."
DFO: If all fundies were this soft on the eyes, GreenL, their wouldn't be a lot of atheists out there.
