Our View, Dynamis project: A hurry-up contract only invites skepticism
Idaho Statesman  | Staff Editorial | June 1, 2012
“Not surprisingly, the commissioners’ hurry-up move has drawn criticism from the candidates who actually won on May 15. Commission hopeful Jim Tibbs called the deal “back-door secretive.” Case — appointed to a vacant commission seat on May 25 — called the May 22 contract maneuvering “disconcerting.” We agree with Tibbs and Case…”

Ada County extends Dynamis partnership to 2042
Idaho Statesman | Cynthia Sewell | May 23, 2012
On Tuesday morning, the two Ada County Commissioners unanimously approved Agreement No. 9695, which had been added to the agenda about 24 hours earlier. It extended the county’s public/private partnership with Dynamis from five to 30 years and cleared the way for Dynamis to bring in additional hot-burning waste, like tires, to fuel its trash-to-electricity plant. The action took less than a minute and during that time the commissioners didn’t say whom the agreement was with or explain the changes being made, even though reporters, candidates and citizens were in the room.

Case: Taxpayers deserve change
Idaho Statesman | Lisa White – Letter to the Editor | May 11, 2012
If you want a leader, best vote for Dave Case as your next Ada County commissioner. He is approachable and will actually return phone calls from citizens.

He does not toot his own horn, but works for the people. He, too, has been recognized for his public service throughout his career and has done so much for our community out here that most folks don’t even realize. He has gotten us sidewalks for the kids to ride their bikes on to be safe off the streets, coordinated service projects and dropped off food to the senior center, pushed the Boys and Girls Club through, asked folks in public forums what they want or need, and brought about badly needed road projects out here. The list is endless.

I have read numerous mean-spirited blogs by his opponent and her supporters, and not once has Dave made a rude comment toward anyone. That shows his strong character.

Don’t you find it odd that Sharon Ullman has registered and run as a Democrat, an independent and a Republican?

Dave won’t carelessly spend our hard-earned money, and he’ll make certain you see how it’s spent in an open forum. It will be great to have a positive change for taxpayers!
