New County Prosecutor Promises Change
Report from Concerned Citizens of Idaho Falls (CCIF) July 26, 2022 meeting
Held at Franklin's Cheesesteaks, Randy Neal, guest speaker.
We held an informal round table, speaking freely amongst each other.
1. Randy is planning on transparency of judges to be added to the FB website- Bonneville County
Prosecuting Attorney- That information will include lawyer recommendations vs. judge’s
decision. He promises to bring awareness to the community regarding judge rulings and vows to
make punishments fit the crime.
2. Judges usually resign before they come up for vote on the ballot, which then leaves the spot
being filled by judicial council. Judicial council is a Governor appointed board. The group expressed concerns that it appears Idaho Falls has very few, if any, conservative/constitutional judges.
3. The budget is low in that office because the county tries to keep taxes low. There is an entry
level lawyer shortage throughout the entire state.
CCIF meets twice monthly at 170 Elm St., Idaho Falls, ID, on the the 3rd and 4th Tuesday
