Four years ago, Mo Dunkel ran for mayor of Sandpoint. He lost the election, but not his opportunity to participate in City government. He has NOT participated. He has NOT joined a City committee (choices include: Planning & Zoning, Arts, Parks & Rec, Pedestrian & Bicycle, Tree, and Historical). He has attended perhaps two City Council meetings, of about 350 since that election.
Shelby Rognstad is running for mayor of Sandpoint. Since the previous mayoral election, he has continued on City Council, and was elected President by his fellow councilors. He has been deeply involved, spending many hundreds of hours involved in most aspects of City government. Because it runs smoothly, we tend to take police and fire protection for granted, use safe drinking water and flush toilets, use roadways with all their signs and markings, and enjoy our well-kept parks.
Who do you think would do a better job running this complex service organization?
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.
