This upcoming May will host a primary election for a number of important and significant positions in our local government. While most of us go about our daily activities trying to ignore all the political signs, the advertisements invading our favorite TV programming and meetings regarding specific candidates, we forget how hard candidates work to gain the trust, support and backing of the voters they represent; not to mention the money and time they spend. Many are running campaigns while working full time and trying to have some semblance of private time with family and friends. It’s a challenging balance.
One of the most successful people I know in the political arena juggling all these responsibilities is Bill Brooks, one of our county commissioners up for re-election this year. He has proven himself a sincere commissioner for the people of Kootenai County. He continually uses his knowledge of an issue along with common sense and factual data in decision-making. He’s not obligated to any one special interest group or ideology, is always available to respond to constituents and comes with a diverse background of management skills.
Despite the challenges Bill has faced with superficial attacks of differing views, he has maintained his commitment to what is in the best interest of Kootenai County as a whole. His vision for this area’s future is one every candidate and officeholder alike would benefit from having.
Get to know him and vote for Bill Brooks!
