Lockwood for Bonner Co. Commissioner…

Dear Editor,

There is a long-time friend of the community, who will work for ALL county residents and will bring a breath of fresh air to our County Commission. His name is Steve Lockwood.

Some highlights:

 Steve is a strong advocate for public education and has served on the Lake Pend Oreille School Board.

 He supports Medicaid Expansion. Not only will it help workers and families who need medical insurance, but it will save money by bringing back more federal dollars to Idaho’s counties.

He will work to promote good-paying jobs and affordable housing for working families.

He wants to ensure that our county has a strong seat at the table and to find out how our air- and water-quality might be adversely affected by the Newport Smelter.

As a problem solver, Steve says there is no Republican nor Democrat way to fix roads and bridges – only an effective way. He is a fiscal conservative, and with his valuable management experience, he can give tax payers the best service at the lowest cost.

Finally, it’s time for transparency of the County Commission. Steve promises to open the doors and windows! It’s time for a change for the better, so get out and vote for Steve Lockwood as your new Bonner County Commissioner this November.

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.
