Candidate Navigator on Idaho Press Tribune Webpage

All right folks, we now have the very first candidate navigator posted by the good people at the Idaho Press Tribune.  I tried it out and the results came out pretty much to who we will be voting for come election day.  Here's the link ELECTION NAVIGATOR it will take you about 15 minutes to go through it to read all the responses and place your marks by the comments you agree.  It is pretty easy to figure out the incumbents and some of the challengers have cited their websites in the answers but none the less it is helpful to become a more informed voter.  We are pleased to see a lot of the questions dealing with Urban Renewal and other issues of importance to voters.

There are also audio and videos of the candidates.  Essays by the candidates will also be posted on the IPT website in the near term.

THE GUARDIAN hopes the good people at the IPT don't mind me sending me to their website.  I thank them for making the effort to better inform voters.

Also, it is important to remember you can vote early at the Canyon County elections office and generally the City Clerks have ballots and a secure ballot box for all early voting. ballots. You can also get an absentee ballot request on the County elections website or simply request one in writing with your signature and return address info.


  1. I would like to add to this post that it has been reported to THE GUARDIAN that there have been zero no votes on the Caldwell City Council for the last 18 months. It is something to consider when casting your vote. I won't say it is a good thing or a bad thing but the lack of discussion and debate is troubling.

  2. I have to correct you on your addendum Paul-Jim Blacker was the sole NO vote when deciding to allow liquer by the glass sales on Sunday in Caldwell.

  3. Here is some Food for Thought as we consider some upcoming Canyon County Elections: Nampa City Councilman Stephen Kren HAS voted in favor of contracts with former prosecutor John Bujak:

  4. So which candidates support Urban Renewal and which are against it?

    I would like to know which of these aspiring politicos are absolutely against urban renewal no matter what and want to get rid of it, and who the others are who profess they want to reform it, leave it as is or whatever other ways they want to dress it up but basically keep Urban renewal.

    It will help me narrow down my voting choices significantly!


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.
