Support for Ray

I am writing to ask your vote for Jennifer Bedey Ray, Candidate for Justice of the Peace in Court One of Ravalli County Justice Court. I previously worked as a prosecutor for the Ravalli County Attorney’s office for over twelve years. During my work as a prosecutor, Jennifer served as the Court Administrator for Judge…

Support for Pearson

As Court Administrator and substitute Judge for Justice Court for the last 12 years, I am endorsing Jim Pearson for Justice of the Peace. I didn’t know Jim prior to the primary election however, I have spent some time since then getting to know him. He has spent many hours in the courtroom since the…

Support for Burrows

Ravalli County Commissioner Jeff Burrows is running for re-election to the position he has held the past four years. Jeff has earned the respect of his peers by his willingness to listen and learn, and also has earned the respect of his constituents by demonstrating his leadership style in admitting to mistakes and quickly taking…

Fear mongering

Fear makes life easier for Republican politicians: “Be afraid of ISIS! Be afraid of Ebola! Be afraid of losing your guns!” Because as long as Americans panic over the non-issues of the day, real issues that affect everyday people—like greedy corporations calling the shots and climate change—become afterthoughts. And once Republicans have Americans shaking in…

Praise for Perri

For those you who weren’t at the Stevensville Playhouse last Saturday, you missed an evening of music and fun. Russell Perri shared his exceptional musical talent with the audience.

As the managing director of this facility, I am writing this letter to our community to let you, the taxpayers, know what’s…

Remove Burrows

During the primary election, we, the citizens of Ravalli County, voted overwhelmingly to remove two of our commissioners, thus beginning the process of bringing sanity back to county government. After numerous embarrassments, culminating with the treasurer’s debacle, hopefully things will soon improve. Unfortunately, the job is only partially done, with incumbent commissioner, Jeff Burrows, still…

Tips on study commission candidates

Terry Nelson is Chairman of the Republican Central Committee. He provided a sample ballot at the Republican Women’s Apple Days booth and on the internet. Sample ballot was drafted and distributed without the permission of the Republican Central Committee, or Republican Women. I encourage everyone to note the following names that Terry has recommended for…

Support for Schneider

Our stunning valley is putting on her best show these days with glorious colors and premium weather. People talk about it happily everywhere I go. What few are talking about is the upcoming election. Did you know that Ron Ehli voted for a permanent property tax reduction for Montana’s wealthiest earners? Similarly he voted to…
