Vote for Kate…

Dear Editor,

Two very different candidates are running for election to the Idaho House of Representatives seat 1A. There are basic differences in their beliefs and how they will represent all residents of District 1. Before casting your vote take time to consider what the future Bonner County, Legislative District 1 and the state of Idaho should look like.

Is your vision of the future one where your children and grandchildren have educational opportunities that enable them to succeed in a 21st century economy? Will there be roads and bridges on which you and your family can safely travel? Are there public lands that we can freely access and enjoy while benefiting economically? Is there a thriving economy with a growing middle class benefiting from higher wages and new and retained business? Will your government be transparent, effective and responsive? This is Kate McAlister’s visions for a better Idaho.

Kate has been a worker and leader for Bonner County for over 20 years. She has shown herself to be very effective in creating opportunities for Bonner County workers and businesses. She knows the value of a dollar. Our education, business, charities and arts are better because of her. She reaches out. She listens. She collaborates with others to build consensus and makes good things happen.

Vote for a better Idaho. Vote for Kate!

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.
