Priest River native Jeff Connolly will again be running for District 2 Bonner County commissioner in 2020.

Jeff Connolly.

Connolly told the Reader on Dec. 31 that he looks forward to the chance to continue serving his North Idaho neighbors after his current four-year term runs out.

“I’m all about continuing the work,” he said.

Connolly, a Republican, ran for a county commissioner seat in 2016, having previously served on the Priest River City Council. He ran for commissioner on a platform emphasizing transparency in government, protecting Bonner County jobs and using a “common sense” approach when conducting county business.

“I think we’ve done some good things,” Connolly said of the current Board of Bonner County Commissioners, “and I’d like to see some of those things through.”
