Like many others in our community, I was disgusted and disappointed that someone stooped low enough to send out “robo-calls” using racist and homophobic comments to slander one of our candidates for mayor of Sandpoint.
I was also faced with the question of how to respond. I recalled how, in Coeur d’Alene, when white supremacists were picketing several taco stands there, people who were outraged gathered their friends and made a point of going frequently and buying lots of tacos. The picketers soon stopped.
So, I’m suggesting that those of us who are moved to counter this hateful and immature behavior that is degrading to Sandpoint, contribute to Shelby Rognstad’s campaign. Our contributions could buy some more signs to replace the ones that have been stolen.
