Mr. Bill: Mayor Hasn’t Changed Ways

If you thought that OpenCDA-dot-Com was going to leave the failed recall attempt alone, you need to think again. Mr. Bill was busy spinning a City Council encounter between Mayor Sandi Bloem and audience member Charlotte Gherke, whom I thought was borderline rude in her statement to Bloem and the council at the last City Council election. Mr. Bill, of course, dumps everything on Mayor Bloem: “Let’s play make-believe that Coeur d’Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem has changed her ways since the recall effort and has begun being honest with the citizens.  We have to make believe, because it certainly isn’t reality.” You can read the rest of Mr. Bill's trip through the Looking Glass here. Someone should tell Mr. Bill that his side failed to trigger a recall election despite one of the most intense political campaigns I've seen in almost 30 years in Coeur d'Alene. He's acting as though he represents the majority. Which, fortunately,, he does not.

Question: Isn't it time Mayor Bloem & the council quit listening to the bellyachers who couldn't get enough signatures to recall 4 of them — and move boldly ahead with their agenda?
