Transititional Blog


Increasing numbers of Treasure Valley residents are speaking out about their frustration over the lack of input the public has when it comes to where transitional housing for prisoners goes.

One concerned citizen, Ray Tussing, has channeled his frustration into Idaho Citizens for Transparency and Collaboration. His grass-roots effort has taken the form of an online blog, where anyone interested can share and read related information.

"The objective of this blog is to provide an easy way for citizens of Idaho to speak up on the topic of releasing prisoners and housing them in residential neighborhoods," Tussing wrote in a letter to area leaders. "My objective is to establish a constructive, responsible and effective way to build a healthy collaboration among citizens, politicians, business and institutional leaders to create a better Idaho."
