Letter Charges Moscow With Nepotism

City Supervisor Gary Riedner said Thursday an accusatory anonymous letter has been researched, rendered unfounded and will be the subject of no further action. The letter, distributed to Mayor Nancy Chaney, members of the city council and area media, made allegations of corrupt hiring practices, threats of firing and nepotism in both the city fire and police departments. "As a former volunteer firefighter, citizen and taxpayer of the city of Moscow, I feel this is an injustice to the firefighters for their safety and to the public for their safety and not getting the best candidate for the job," the letter reads. "I have also heard of hiring problems within the police department in the past.' Riedner said he, City Attorney Randy Fife and other city officials looked into the allegations and found no truth to them/David Johnson, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: How big of a problem do you think nepotism is in Idaho cities and counties?
