McAlister a Good Choice…

Dear Editor,
Kate McAlister is my choice for the job of representing our District in the state legislature.
Kate is smart, articulate and experienced with many years of local involvement, from being President/CEO of the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce to serving on various community development and educational boards. She is comfortable with expressing herself when the issue is important, and she is more than willing to debate her opponent, who at this point won’t step up to the podium.
I feel strongly that Kate McAlister will actually represent me at the state level. She ranks right up there with Shawn Keough in wanting to work for the common good. At times like this, co-existence across party lines is important to those of us who like to see life in balanced terms.
Very importantly, let me urge you to get out and vote, and if you think you may not be able to make it to the polls on Nov. 8, please apply (by Nov. 2) to the County Clerk for an absentee ballot.

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.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.

Want to support independent local journalism?

The Sandpoint Reader is our town's local, independent weekly newspaper. "Independent" means that the Reader is locally owned, in a partnership between Publisher Ben Olson and Keokee Co. Publishing, the media company owned by Chris Bessler that also publishes Sandpoint Magazine and Sandpoint Online. Sandpoint Reader LLC is a completely independent business unit; no big newspaper group or corporate conglomerate or billionaire owner dictates our editorial policy. And we want the news, opinion and lifestyle stories we report to be freely available to all interested readers - so unlike many other newspapers and media websites, we have NO PAYWALL on our website. The Reader relies wholly on the support of our valued advertisers, as well as readers who voluntarily contribute. Want to ensure that local, independent journalism survives in our town? You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
