The Commissioner We Need…

Dear Editor,

Bonner County needs the right county commissioner.

Steve Lockwood has observed what is going wrong, he cares and he has the know how and experience to help address our needs and set it right. 

We need our property value protected by appropriate zoning to prevent unwanted and destructive uses next door. Roads and  bridges need maintenance with more funds appropriately allocated county-wide. We need all of our children to be well educated to insure their  future happiness and prosperity. The quality of our air and water needs to be safe-guarded to protect our health and well-being.

Steve had proven he cares. He has served on the Lake Pend Oreille School Board, Sandpoint City Council, Sandpoint Planning and Zoning Commission and is currently on the Sandpoint Urban Renewal Board. 

Steve came to Sandpoint following a very successful career, starting out climbing telephone poles and then climbing up to a top technical and managerial position at AT&T. There he delivered high-quality service at low cost.

Be sure to vote on Nov. 6 for Steve Lockwood, by far the top candidate for Bonner County Commissioner.

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.

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?
