LITSTER HAS EARLY MORNING TALK CONGRATULATING TJ THOMSON;
HE DETAILS PLANS TO “PUT THE TROLLEY ISSUE TO A VOTE”
Dave Litster today thanked his supporters and volunteers “for putting their best efforts into making a difference at the local level. Though the outcome was disappointing, we had a great effort for a campaign that began in earnest barely a month ago and raised a third of the money of my opponent.”
Litster said he called TJ Thomson after midnight Tuesday. “We had a good visit about focusing on the important issues facing Boise, and I congratulated him on the enthusiasm he generated with his supporters.”
LITSTER DETAILS PLANS TO “PUT THE TROLLEY ISSUE TO A VOTE”
As to his initiative petition to prohibit construction of the streetcar without approval from the voters, Litster reported that the signature push at the recent BSU-San Jose game generated hundreds of signatures.
He said about 1,500 signatures have been collected so far and he asked everyone who has a petition to return it to the campaign P.O. Box (found at dave4boise.com) for tabulation.
Litster said within two weeks he will create a political action committee “to advance this effort and other important issues facing Boise.” He said by December he hoped to have the 5,000 additional signatures needed to complete the petition.
“Once that is completed, the voters will have the final say, not just the vote of three city council members plus the mayor,” concluded Litster.
