Cast your vote for Ellen Weissman for District 1

Print Article

If you would like to see a change in our state Legislature by electing someone with clear and transparent views and experience

dealing with all age groups in our district, you should vote on Nov. 6 for Ellen Weissman for District 1 State Representative, Seat A.

A strong supporter of education, as a former teacher she feels that “we have a responsibility to educate all students, of all ages, for success and to cope with future challenges.”

In her work with senior citizens — she is currently executive director of the Sandpoint Senior and DayBreak centers — she finds that “when thinking of what’s good for seniors, it’s often something that’s good for everyone.” In her job, she says, “I’m advocating for everyone and there are no divisions between Democrats and Republicans.”

Weissman supports a natural resources policy that provides recreational and economic opportunities while protecting our legacy for future generations. She opposes the Newport smelter as a threat to the quality of environment — “which is why many of us chose to move here — to have clean air and water.”

She is a good listener — a skill developed in dealing with both young and older citizens. She will hear our views and represent all of us in Bonner and Boundary counties.

So be sure and cast your vote on Nov. 6 for Ellen Weissman. If you are not already registered, you can register to vote online or by mail until Oct. 12. You can register on election day with proof of residency.
