Dave Case

Ada County election officials will recount votes for the county Commissioner District 3 seat at the request of a former candidate.

Sharon Ullman's request for a recount of six precincts comes after she lost in the May Republican primary to current Commissioner Dave Case. The Idaho Attorney General's and Secretary of State's offices will oversee the recount on Thursday.

Case had been declared the winner of the May election with 53 percent of the ballot, or more than 1,000 votes.

For months, the debate over a proposed trash and tire burning facility at the Ada County landfill has escalated. 

A citizens group that opposes the Dynamis project has criticized Ada County Commissioners  Rick Yzaguirre and Sharon Ullman - arguing that the two aren’t listening to residents' concerns.

But this week, there’s a new voice speaking out on the garbage-fueled power plant.  That’s the third county commissioner, Dave Case.

Ada County Commissioner Dave Case grilled executives from Dynamis Energy Friday morning.  The Eagle-based company wants to build a plant at the Ada County landfill that would turn trash and tires into electricity.  Case, though, failed in his attempt to bring an end to the county’s contract with Dynamis.
