Wanna know how close-minded Kathy Sims, R-OpenCDA.com, is when it comes to urban renewal? During the long-running Idaho Legislature debate on six bills sponsored by Sims, Hart, and other anti-urban renewal legislators, Mayor Sandi Bloem sent an SOS to Idaho legislators, urging: "Please support economic development in Idaho." Sims received one of those letters. She responded angrily to the Her Sandiness: "Mayor Bloom (sic), You are wrong on all issues. You will see these bills every year till they pass." (You can see Sims' response by click on this link here.) As you know, only one of the six anti-urban renewal bills passed this year. Which sez to me that Sims, Hart, and other anti-urban renewal solons were out-of-step even with a radical Idaho House of Reps.
