His boss says he’s just “good at his job.” It was just before 9 a.m. one day last July, and Noemi Martinez was on her way from one job interview to the next, running to catch a bus on Atlantic Boulevard in Jacksonville, Fla. Sprinklers from a nearby nursery were showering water onto the broken sidewalk in front of her, so Martinez walked out into the shoulder of Lee Road and pressed on.Things were fairly urgent for Martinez, 52.

At a private meeting in September, congressional aides asked Rebeckah Adcock, a top official at the Department of Agriculture, to reveal the identities of the people serving on the deregulation team she leads at the agency.Teams like Adcock’s, created under an executive order by President Trump, had been taking heat from Democratic lawmakers over their secrecy. What little was publicly known suggested that some of the groups’ members had deep ties to the industries being regulated.Adcock, a former pesticide industry executive, brushed off the request, according to House aides familiar with the exchange, who asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to comment publicly.…

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 04:01:00 -0700

(image) The most lopsided vote came when 83.4 percent of Boise voters supported the city's open space levy. With all of the issues swirling around Boise—a controversial proposal to build a sports stadium, the possibility of F-35 fighter jets at Gowen Field, the lack of a robust public transit system and the widening gap between affordable and high-end housing—it would have been natural to conclude that more citizens would want to have a say about who's making the city's toughest decisions.…
