Five reasons I’m voting for Dan McDonald

Print Article

Budget cuts: In his first term, Dan helped chop $12 million from the budget, something that’s never happened in Bonner County’s history. It’s always welcome when waste is eliminated, and Dan has done just that.

Retaining services: The biggest concern when cutting a budget so drastically is a loss of county services. None were lost. And the commissioners have worked to retain their hard-working employees by paying them what they’re worth as they continue to provide residents necessary services.

Fiscal responsibility: While others claim to be “fiscally conservative,” Dan McDonald has walked that talk. For example: one of the first efficiencies made was hiring a procurement person to centralize purchasing, saving the taxpayers money.

Transparency: While Dan’s opponent claims he’s “transparent,” while continuing to dodge constituents’ questions on social media, Dan is readily-available 24 hours a day, and routinely chats with and assists county residents at all hours.

Integrity: Dan takes pride in his honesty, forthrightness, and willingness to explain the decisions he makes to his constituents. He is thoughtful in his decision-making processes, and weights every angle before coming to conclusions that best benefit constituents.

For these reasons and more, I am voting to re-elect Dan McDonald for county commissioner. Please consider giving him your vote.
