Oh, you grumpy voters you! Let's think about this for a bit. For this opinion to win the "best politicians" category must mean BW voters were feeling especially cynical and down in the mouth about local pols.
Gosh, don't know why ... could it be the Larry Craig scandal? Or maybe it's the upcoming elections that have you down. Nobody hates politicians more than at election time, so maybe you're getting yourselves ready to vote for a new mayor of Boise or for a new City Council in general. Or maybe it's the early start of the 2008 presidential race that's got you jaded. Either way, local pols take note: you're on probation.
Second Place: Mayor Dave Bieter
Third Place: Rep. Nicole LeFavour
