Let's see, do I want to fight a war of aggression? Or establish strong health, education, and welfare programs? It seems a no-brainer, but people have been taught to love war and mistrust government. Never mind that war is a massive government program. Never mind that in a democracy, the government is supposed to be theirs. Identify with the war, mistrust the government. Love the president, hate the government. It makes no sense.
Caldwell City Councilman David Clark Resigns
There will be an open seat on the Caldwell, Idaho City Council.
Since David Clark just announced this last night, it appears that the news outlets haven't picked up the story yet. (as of 9:50 a.m. MST)
From his Facebook page:
Dear friends and family, life is full of adventures and challenges and I am going though an adventure right now. For the past few months, I have been communicating with a company called www.web.com. They build websites, social media and SEO for businesses. It has been a great partnership and they have recently offered me a permanent position in their Houston, Texas office as a Sales Branch Manager, responsible for the entire Houston area. I will have many people under my wing and this is a big step for me.
Normally it would take a lot for me to tear up my Caldwell roots for a move like this, however web.com delivered. The offer was too sweet to say no. Therefore, I accepted their offer and I am moving to Houston Feb 11. I know this is a shock to some of you, but this is a natural progression in my career right now. Life here in Idaho for the family will remain somewhat the same. Marcee will run the event center and the social media business will be ran out of Houston. Another major change for me is resigning from my passion, the Caldwell City Council. This was the most difficult decision to make, but it needed to be made in order for the Citizens of Caldwell to be served right. My last council meeting will be February 4th.
