Kuna Mayor Elect and "Cold Day In Hell"

The Caldwell Guardian reported in an earlier post last week the story of Kuna Mayor Elect Greg Nelson owing the city of Kuna $36,000.  In the Idaho Statesman today there is more about this dust-up between Mr. Nelson and Kuna.  Here's the link:

Reporter for the Statesman, Cynthia Sewell did a great job of getting the facts in this matter for readers of her paper.  She has connected all the dots and even has a great quote from Mr. Nelson:

"It will be a cold day in hell before I pay the city $36,000."

We can only wonder if the election results would have been different had this all come out during the mayoral campaign in Kuna.  The Guardian supports the democratic process where things get loud and noisy with voters making informed decisions.

Editor Note:  Mr. Hasson is leaving the city of Kuna to take a City Manager position in La Pine, Oregon.  He will be leaving Kuna as of Feb. 1, 2012, meanwhile the Mayor will get his wish for Mr. Hasson to leave.

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.
