Thank you Reader and Lyndsie Kiebert for the series profiling candidates running in the May 15 primary election. I can learn about the candidates on their own websites, but I feel that the media is my best source for objective information in deciding how to cast my vote.
In the articles published to date, I learned about candidates’ views on their own priorities (education, health care, taxes, etc). However, I’d like to see the Reader include discussion of the most pressing topic of our times: How can we transition off of fossil fuels and to sustainable energy, to improve both our economy and health?
While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.Support The Reader
