Rather than being a vote, consensus is a mutual agreement of League members arrived at through discussion. We need your input!

JIM WADDELL will discuss how much the four lower Snake River dams are costing tax- and ratepayers, and what they get for their money in terms of restoring salmon runs and effects on the regional economy. He will also address the benefits that can be derived from a free-flowing lower Snake River and how it is possible to achieve many of these benefits, even within the next five years, while saving and/or redirecting funds to other more beneficial federal projects or dams.

Waddell is a professional civil engineer who retired after a 35-year career with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Now, with the help of other volunteers and economic consultants, he is engaged in a re-evaluation of the cost, economics, biology, engineering and policies concerning the lower Snake River dams.

The candidates for the Idaho Supreme Court are Robyn Brody and Curt McKenzie; the position is nonpartisan. During the debate, candidates will answer questions from a panel of reporters selected by the Idaho Press Club.

The Idaho Debates is a partnership of the Idaho Press Club, the League of Women Voters of Idaho and Idaho Public Television, along with additional partners and sponsors. The consortium has hosted political debates in Idaho for the past three decades.
