Press Release: Pocatello Native and Army Veteran David Worley to Challenge Blad for Office of Mayor

By • September 8, 2021

The following Press Release was sent to Idaho Dispatch by David Worley, a candidate for Mayor of Pocatello:

Pocatello, ID – Pocatello native and Army Veteran David Worley is challenging incumbent Mayor Brian Blad in the 2021 Pocatello City Elections.

Mr. Worley made the decision to run for mayor because he is concerned about how Pocatello citizens and their businesses are impacted by high tax rates, lack of local government transparency, and poor management of the city government and its resources. He believes it is essential that the chief executive of the city acts to protect the rights of the individual citizen.

Worley said, “Every dollar the city spends is a dollar it had to take from the people. Every dollar taken reduces the freedom that citizens have to determine for themselves how to spend their wages. The people of Pocatello deserve a city government that spends their money wisely and efficiently, and takes as little as possible. The people also deserve a government that is more concerned with protecting their freedom than imposing arbitrary rules and laws in the name of public safety. It is time to try freedom for a change. As mayor of Pocatello, I will return the focus of government to serving the citizens, not dictating to them.”

The Worley Team will be hosting a campaign kickoff event at the Leavitt Center on Monday, September 13th, 2021 at 7:00 pm.
