Steve Johnson is running for Bonner County commissioner, District 1, in the November election. A lifetime resident of Bonner County, he has proven to be a successful administrator, attentive listener, and experienced problem solver — committed to a strong economy and quality of life.
A graduate of Sandpoint High School and the University of Idaho, he has been an elementary and high school teacher and principal, as well as a successful farmer, homebuilder, and small-scale logger. He served on the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce and the East Bonner County Library District board.
Steve’s experience is ideal for the job. It has included listening to concerns and finding solutions, supervising, evaluating and coordinating staff, overseeing a budget, and interacting with government, non-profit sector groups and individuals.
A firm supporter of education, as a county commissioner he will work to retain and recruit businesses that will benefit Bonner County families, and ensure a strong local economy and quality of life.
His priorities include helping reinstate transparency (something that has been lacking in our current commissioners’ activities) and accountability in property taxes and the county budget, along with protection of private property rights for landowners, and prioritizing the upgrade and improvement of county roads.
For experience, honesty and accountability in office I urge you to vote for Steve Johnson for county commissioner, District 1, on Nov. 6.
