There is a long-time friend of the community, who will work for all county residents and bring a breath of fresh air to our county commission. His name is Steve Lockwood.

Some highlights:

Steve is a strong advocate for public education and has served on the Lake Pend Oreille School Board.

He supports Medicaid expansion. Not only will it help workers and families who need medical insurance, but it will save money by bringing back more federal dollars to Idaho’s counties.

He will work to promote good-paying jobs and affordable housing for working families.

He wants to ensure that our county has a strong seat at the table and to find out how our air and water quality might be adversely affected by the proposed Newport smelter.

As a probem solver, Steve says there is no Republican or Democrat way to fix roads and bridges — only an effective way. He is a fiscal conservative, and with his valuable management experience, he can give taxpayers the best service at the lowest cost.

Finally, it’s time for transparency of the county commission. Steve promises to open the doors and windows. It’s time for a change for the better, so get out and vote for Steve Lockwood as your new Bonner County commissioner this November.



Lockwood Will Bring Honesty to County Commission

It’s that time of the year again when it’s time to make decisions as to who you are planning to vote for. The following are some of Marguerite’s and my observations as to who or what has been said that has not been truthful as relayed to us by county officials.

As we live on the water, we see what is or isn’t happening. Last year, we were told the sheriff patrolled every day along the river; that was not true and we sustained significant damage from wake boats. This year, I was told the same thing so I called the former marine division commander, who told me that the patrol boatthat had been assigned to the river was tranferred to Priest Lake several years ago and there was no regular patrol between the Long Bridge and Dover. So I asked for a sit-down with the lieutenant in charged. That never happened. So, I guess it is time for a change whereby we will once again have some honesty.

I urge you to vote for Steve Lockwood for Bonner County commisioner, District 3, and I can assure you that your vote will note be squandered not be a poor choice. I have known Steve for a long time and respect his integrity, honesty and commitment to fiscal integrity.

Vote Steve Lockwood on Nov. 6.



Lockwood has the Necessary Background, Experience

Lockwood has The Necessary Background, Experience

Steve Lockwood, candidate for the Bonner County Board of Commissioners, is a strong believer in transparency, and doesn’t think our current elected county officials are practicing it today,

“Today’s county commission is making decisions privately, before public meetings, and not making it easy for voters to follow their actions,” says Lockwood, who is running in the Democratic primary election for District 3.

A 19-year resident of Bonner County, Steve has the background and experience needed for this important job. After retiring as an Operations Manager for AT&T, he was elected to Sandpoint’s City Council, chaired Sandpoint’s Planning and Zoning Commission and is currently on its Urban Renewal Board. He also served on the Lake Pend Oreille School Board.

Lockwood cites the need to preserve the clean air, water and public lands that make our county special to live in and attractive for businesses and employees. He also stresses the need to promote moderately- priced housing and create strategies that attract jobs paying a living wage for a family.

Be sure to vote for Steve Lockwood in the primary May 15 and in the general election on Nov. 6.
