McDonald’s Efforts Hurting Our Way of Life

October 30, 2018 at 5:00 am | Bonner County Daily Bee | Direct Link to Article

Many of us living in the Selle and Samuels area purchased our property to enjoy our home and have privacy and space from encroachment.

I now understand Commissioner Dan McDonald and his cohorts are trying to change our area from rural and agricultural to something of their own designs (profit motive?). It appears Commissioner McDonald is stacking the deck to get his changes pushed through by having both Realtors and developers involved in trying to change our beautiful area. You, sir, are way out of balance and your dictatorial approach is unacceptable. Yours is a temporary job, you will not be king, or a for-life county commissioner. If your sole purpose is to reap profits for the short time you’re in office that is totally unacceptable.

You are attempting to circumvent both public input as well as trying to control the Selle/Samuels Area Comprehensive Planning Committee. Said committee lives in the Selle/Samuels area and have a vested interest in maintaining our beautiful lands in as pristine a manner as possible. Back off.
