Tom Dale May Run for County Commissioner

It has been reported to THE GUARDIAN, former mayor of Nampa, Tom Dale may be considering a run for Canyon County Commissioner.  We have heard it from several sources but Mr. Dale has not made any formal announcements. 

If he does run it will be against Commissioner Kathy Alder. 

Commissioner Steve Rule has Mr. Sid Freeman challenging him this time around.  Mr. Freeman has made a formal announcement.

  2. Unemployment benefits running out already. The Democrats have been looking for candidates--He will fit right in

  3. Well, if Tom does decide to run he will surely be a spoiler for anyone giving any thought to unseating Comm. Alder. He was only narrowly defeated by Mayor Bob Henry.

  5. The election between Tom Dale and Bob Henry wasn't as close as some would like you to believe. Remember that 1100 people voted for Robert Muse. I have to think most of those votes would have been cast for Bob Henry if Muse hadn't been in the race or they would have voted for Dale anyway. That would have made the spread over a 1000 not the 113 that was reported.

    1. He is probably going to primary Ms. Alder in Idaho's new closed primary process. I am sure he is a Republican. What is needed now is a strong Independent candidate to run in this race.

  6. This is a classic case of a man addicted to being on the public dole, power, prestige etc. Although I do think Kathy Alder is sadly out of touch, the last thing Canyon county needs is an influx of career politician such as Tom Dale.

    1. Out of touch is an understatement. What we have now on the Canyon County Commission is dumb, dumber and dumbest. Worst bunch of commissioners this county has ever seen, but don't take this as a Dale endorsement because it is not.

  7. I see in today's IPT that Mr. Dale feels that the current commissioners are not open with their plan to spend $40,000,000 on the new fairgrounds. Seems to me he should fit right in as he has a lot of experience spending the taxpayers money without their approval.

    1. This guy needs to be nipped-in-the-bud. Look at the disaster he caused in Nampa. Two city projects that weren't voted on by the people. Now he is trying to infiltrate the county, and cajole it the same way on building a new jail. If I was a registered Republican I would put a checkmark in Ms. Alder's place and put an end to this guys political career.

    1. Here's the short answer to your dilemma... Tom Dale will not, I repeat NOT be any improvement and is in fact not worthy to even run against Kathy Alder.
      Let's keep Tom in the brass section of his band and out of our pockets.

    2. I had this strange vision the other day and in it I was visualizing old Tom Dale out in the middle of the lake in a rowboat with no oars. Maybe in my conscious mind I am thinking that, that is where he should stay politically.

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
