Idaho voters deserve at least two good options in the governor’s race, but we aren’t sure they have them.
Tuesday’s Idaho Falls School District 91 bond election leaves you with a sense of déjà vu. When the all the votes were counted, the proportion who supported building a new high school was identical, down to two decimal points, to the outcome in November: 58.44 percent.
School District 91 won’t like us for this, but forget all the reasons they’ve told you so far to vote for the upcoming two-tier bond.
