I am part of a large group of people who live outside of Sandpoint, but consider Sandpoint home. Sandpoint is where we go for our groceries, entertainment, eating out, and where we attend church. We are invested in Sandpoint. What happens in and to Sandpoint is important to us.
Sandpoint residents, please know the mayoral candidates and vote. Both Mose and Shelby are relatively young and have lived here for more than 15 years. Ask what each has done to make Sandpoint a better place. Actions do speak louder than words. Shelby has served the citizens of Sandpoint for the past 8 years. He has been an effective member of the City Council where he distinguished himself by his dedication and commitment to make Sandpoint a better place. He has shown excellent judgment as he helped negotiate with the Idaho Department of Transportation on the Highway 2 alternative, thereby preserving downtown streets. Shelby helped draft the Sandpoint Comprehensive plan. Shelby has worked with regional and federal agencies to develop a regional trails master plan. He is now the current City Council President.
In contrast, Mose Dunkel has never held public office, nor has he served on any committees. He has almost never attended a City Council meeting.
By contrasting and comparing the two candidates it becomes clear that Shelby has more experience, is more knowledgeable and is an effective and inspirational civic leader.
