All In The Family Time

We learned today Caldwell City Councilman Rob Hopper will be the new IT manager for Canyon County.  Mr. Hopper also serves on the Caldwell East Urban Renewal Agency Board in addition to his new position with Canyon County.

We wish Mr. Hopper well in his new job with Canyon County.  The job pays $85,000 plus benefits.  New eyes on issues an opportunities to improve county services are always a welcome bit of news to all of us.

Also serving on the CEURA Board is County Commissioner Steve Rule.  This will be an interesting mix now that Mr. Hopper is a newly minted county employee.  Link to county press release  Hopper Hired


  1. I just don't know what do say...

  2. Lets see how long it takes him, to mismanage fund on a county level like he has shared ownership on the city level. With all the disatified people in caldwell now he can spread the wealth with all the county.

  3. Is this not a conflict of interest? Paul, any comment?

  4. Mr. Hopper will certainly have to walk the line and recuse himself at even a hint of a conflict of interest.

    We are resonably certain more than a few people will be watching what goes on over time.

  5. Canyon County is pulling a Boise City by blocking your page. The wage slaves get their news from approved sources now it seems.

  6. It is true. you cannot access your site. The IPT should be contacted. You can access CNN and Fox News, but no Caldwell Guardian?

  7. We will have to assume the Commishes do not wish people to have access to THE GUARDIAN via county computers.

    New players using new rules at the courthouse. Hopefully, everyone still has access to the legacy media and the local papers.

    Becareful who is watching where you surf on county time and computers. You have no assumed right to privacy while on the job.

  8. Funny how they only block some news sources and not others.


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.
