What an incredible turn-around!

IDTravelCouncil

Bill, thanks for keeping the light on for Boise CVB. Bobbie and her crew are wonderful people who are unfortunately still under siege. Our council gave them a huge vote of confidence with the award because they do such a great job but they continue without funding for salaries to execute our grant. They are in negotiations with the Greater Boise Auditorium District Board, which still has hostile members. If you know and care about the Boise CVB it would help to have your reader's knowledgeable comments on some of the blogs and articles posted about the affair. The negativity and lack of civility needs to stop and be replaced with thoughtful and caring accolades for the BCVB. It probably won't impress the naysayers or apathetics that this appalling situation has national attention but it will let the beleagured CVB know they are class acts for not getting down in the mud which may actually help them endeavor to persevere another day. Karen Ballard, Administrator Idaho Division of Tourism
Note: here are a few of the articles. (Warning Boise Guardian is biased against the BCVB and highly suspect of any use of public funds for any project, so its audience does not produce civil discourse) http://boiseguardian.com/2011/07/27/still-no-check-to-bcvb-from-g-bad/
