Johnson would serve is well

Print Article

We have a chance on Nov. 6 to elect a candidate for County Commissioner who has been a part of Bonner County for more than 60 years. Running in District 1, Steve Johnson will represent all of us in Bonner County.

Experiences growing up here, attending and later teaching in local schools while running his own farming and selective logging business, have provided Steve with a unique understanding of our county’s needs. He has also served as a member of the Chamber of Commerce and on the East Bonner County Library Board, Johnson has the experience needed in listening to concerns and finding solutions, in supervising, and evaluating and coordinating staff,, overseeing a large budget and interacting with government, non-profit and private sector groups and individuals.

He believes in and will work hard to: recruit and retain businesses that pay a living wage; bring back transparency and accountability by opening to the public important county decisions involving property taxes and the county budget; protect private property rights for homeowners while maintaining our Bonner County character, and upgrade and maintain our county roads on a consistent basis for safety and convenience.

Johnson also believes in expanding Medicaid to provide coverage to those county residents who don’t have health insurance — at the same time returning federal tax dollars to the county.

For experience, honesty and transparency in government, vote for Steve Johnson for County Commissioner, District 1, on Nov. 6

We must do better in selecting our candidates

December 11, 2018 at 5:00 am | Bonner County Daily Bee I recently watched the funeral of President George H.W. Bush. His eulogies reminded me that he was truly a good and noble soul. As morbid as it may seem, I like going to funerals, because it reminds ...
