I would like to remind all voters in Bonner County they are able to vote on No. 6 for the county commissioner candidates in both District 1 and District 3, regardless of where they live in Bonner County.
As one of the candidates I pledge to represent all citizens of the county in a transparent and responsible manner.
I am a 60-year resident of Bonner County with a deep respect for our past and a passion about our future. I have the experience and skills that are required for the commissioner position. I have successful experience with large budgets, working with diverse groups, establishing policy, finding solutions to complex problems, listening respectively to different points of view, and communicating in a positive and honest manner.
Like many residents of Bonner County I have a variety of work experiences, including farming, home building, small-scale logging, and education. Forty years of teaching elementary school and high school have taught me the value of educating our young people to equip them for the challenges of the modern world and the importance of their contributions to our community. Bonner County is our home. And we want to keep it prosperous and safe and beautiful.
