McAlister committed to make our great community even better

Print Article

The Sandpoint City Council needs someone who knows the city and this area very well and has demonstrated a commitment to making this great community even better.

Kate McAlister is this person. A 27-year Sandpoint resident, Kate has been president/CEO of the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce for the past ten years — being an advocate for small business owners and prospective entrepreneurs.

Since 2001 she has served Angels Over Sandpoint as a board member and president, has been on the International Selkirk Loop Board of Directors from 2011 to the present, and on the city of Sandpoint Human Relations Commission from 2012 to the present.

She has also served on the Panida Theater Board of Directors, the Sandpoint Airport Planning Advisory Board, and the Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency.

Supporting education, with better funding, is vital for growing our economy and qualifying the workforce for better-paying jobs, she feels. Also, providing affordable housing options for those to purchase or rent a home is high on her agenda.

“This is about coming together and creating solutions based on broad input from all concerned parties,” she says. And she stresses leadership — listening to all sides — based on common sense solutions, as being key to our progress.

So vote for Kate McAlister on Nov. 5 for Sandpoint City Council. Your vote counts.
