BROOKS: Not in our corner

| May 6, 2020 1:00 AM

Every Friday morning I go to my local convenience store and pick up a free copy of the Nickel’s Worth. On the third page is a large advertisement comparing former Kootenai County Commissioner David Stewart and current commissioner Bill Brooks.

After a little research of my own, I was able to substantiate the claims made in this advertisement. Bill Brooks did vote to raise our property taxes 3% and gave himself a 3% pay raise. Clearly Bill Brooks is not in our corner as he claims.

Bill Brooks also filed bankruptcy in 2015 for the second time. I want someone who is more fiscally responsible to care for my tax dollars. The choice is clear. David Stewart is the one who is really in our corner and will be getting my full support.
