I want to alert everyone who will be voting on the Democratic ballot in the upcoming primary election on May 17. There are two people who are running unopposed on the Democratic ticket that are not supported by the Democratic party.
In Legislative District 1 for State Senator, Steve Tanner is on the ballot. Do NOT VOTE for Steve Tanner. Write in Democrat Brian Orr.
In Legislative District 2 State Representative Position B, Bob Vickaryous is on the ballot. Do NOT VOTE for Bob Vickaryous. Write in Democrat Stephen F. Howlett.
Do not trust anyone or any political party that is willing to falsely represent themselves. They could turn against you when it is to their benefit. Only honesty will sustain our democracy.

... 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.
