BOCC: Public safety fail

| May 20, 2020 4:00 PM

Form over substance is a common element in most political deception, and the Board of County Commissioners recently displayed that skill when they denied Doctor Keene, their Coroner, the slightest hope that he will have adequate Idaho facilities in the near future to determine if our loved ones were murdered or died naturally. With all the political promises being offered today in exchange for votes, this one misstep reveals the true lack of commitment by BOCC, as presently constituted, to a safe and civilized community. After all, your Coroner having the tools needed to do the job is what makes a community a Big City instead of a Cow Town. Cow Town it is. Sorry, Doctor Keene.
