Howlett

SANDPOINT — Boundary County resident Stephen Howlett has announced he’s seeking the Democratic party’s nomination for the Idaho House of Representatives’ District 1B seat.

“I will work to give the voters their voice on a variety of issues where we are currently being underrepresented,” Howlett said in a candidate announcement.

Examples of the areas of focus cited by Howlett include Idaho’s transportation maintenance backlog, underfunded public education and closing Idaho’s Medicaid gap. He also advocates for a review of endowment land receipts, security for families, strengthening the compatibility of economic and environmental use of public lands, agriculture and property tax reductions.

Howlett is currently a shoo-in for his party’s nomination as there are no other challengers in the May 15 primary election.

Howlett will face incumbent Sage Dixon in the Nov. 6 general election. Dixon is also a shoo-in for the GOP nomination in the primary, according to the Idaho Secretary of State.

Howlett invites voters to contact him at sfhowlett1b@gmail.com
