LETTER: Re-elect John and Jay

| November 4, 2022 1:00 AM

During this election year, I, as a concerned citizen of Shoshone County, would like to urge every other citizen of Shoshone County to form your own opinion on the candidates running, based on merit and achievements, not on what you have heard from another person’s mouth or more importantly Facebook. I would like you to think about this objectively… if a candidate is running a smear campaign against another candidate to try to get elected, is that someone you really want to run the county or any council? It’s only a matter of time before they turn on you, the citizens of the county that voted them in.

Have you been to the meetings? Have you directly asked the elected officials or councilmen the questions that you want answers to? Have you researched and know what the laws and rules are? If you haven’t, how are you comfortable voting any one person into offices as opposed to another? What kind of person are you to talk about issues that you have no other knowledge of, than what you have heard.

Maybe we don’t have a lot of say in the higher court, be we all do have a say in our local government, and it is our obligation to vote responsibly. Responsibly does not mean voting from what you have heard or seen on social media, but rather on qualification and character. Re-Elect our current County Commissioners Jay Huber and John Hansen.

They are happy to answer any questions that you may have — 208-752-3331.
