I am wondering why some people believe there are advantages to electing a person who has no experience working with city government. How can we know if they have any knowledge how government works and has the good judgment needed to handle the job? And how can we even judge their interests, if they have not been engaged in some capacity of service to the city?
Mose Dunkel states in his candidate profile (sandpointonline) that he has not attended any city council meetings or city committee meetings, nor has he held any public office.
City issues are various and complex. Experience counts!
Shelby Rongstad has knowledge and experience. He has proven his dedication to our city by serving our community on many committees, and as a city council president. Shelby will be prepared from day one to be our mayor.
Experience counts! Vote Shelby Rongstad for mayor.
