Vote Kunzeman…

Dear Editor,

Experienced leader. Problem-solver. Listener.

That’s what I look for in local elected officials, and that’s what I’ve found in Carol Kunzeman. Carol will make a first-rate county commissioner. In Ponderay, she served on the city council and then two terms as mayor. In addition to responsible daily management, her record of accomplishment includes helping to get SPOT buses on the road, assisting in the creation of the Pend Oreille Bay Trail and fostering the “Field of Dreams” vision for Ponderay.

Carol has also worked in the corporate world and, as owner-operator of small businesses, understands the challenges of private sector employment and leadership.

She is a collaborator who knows how to get things done, not with ideological bombast, but by respectfully listening to her constituents and building coalitions. She has an old-fashioned notion of public service over partisanship that is particularly suited to county government at this fractious time.

She has my vote on May 15, and I hope she has yours.

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.
