meeting

Bannock County is a great place to live and raise a family. Its future is bright and the county is in a good position to take advantage of opportunity.

I believe we can do better.

Bannock County is set for major growth in the upcoming years. I believe we should be proactive in getting ready for that growth. We need to look for ways to keep property taxes in check while providing necessary services. We need creativity and a spirit of cooperation.

I believe I can help with that.

I was pretty excited to receive this appointment to the National Association of Counties Economic and Workforce Development Steering Committee.  This will be a great opportunity to help shape national policy for the County government and learn new ways to help our area.  The National Association of Counties (NACo) strengthens America’s counties, serving nearly 40,000 county elected officials and 3.6 million county employees.  Founded in 1935, NACo unites county officials to:  * Advocate county priorities in federal policymaking
* Promote exemplary county policies and practices
* Nurture leadership skills and expand knowledge networks
* Optimize county and taxpayer resources and cost savings

I attended a meeting of the SIPH Board this afternoon. The board decided that in an attempt to minimize confusion from all the different data sources, they would only post CDC data going forward. I think it was a good decision.  Part of the presentation was information provided from the state on rates by vaccination status. The chart below details the difference between vaccinated/non-vaccinated individuals.

I tried listening, They’ve lost my trust in them and I didn’t feel like anyone really “knows” anything!

I appreciated your thoughtful questions to the presenters. Are you going to be on the board instead of Moser?

Cdcs data is bs

Commissioner Jeff Hough, are the hospitals actually keeping tally on who’s vaccinated and who isn’t when the numbers come out? Can we get actual numbers instead of %? And since they plan on using CDC information, why are PCR testing being used. Since the CDC stated the tests were inaccurate?

Why do they focus so heavily on vaccines (they are still investigational) when they could focus on early immunity, antibody testing and treatment. They have lost the public’s trust and they have overstepped their power. The reaction of the public not to trust them is well deserved. I think they should apologize for their complete mishandling of the public health. They are not open to a healthy discussion, only force authoritarian propaganda from a federal level. They have destroyed our economy, our supply chains, and our small business. This hyper focus is irresponsible at best and people should be leary of this institution from root to branch. If people have died, much of the blood rests directly on their hands.

Thank you for keeping us updated
