I just received the “Sandpoint United Against Shelby” robo call and I am suspended between shock, disgust, and laughter. It is racist, sexist, and so juvenile I wouldn’t even expect that behavior if he was running for 6th grade class president. But as I digest what was said, what is remaining is fear. Fear that someone like that exists, let alone is actually running for mayor of our wonderful town!
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.
