Peters is best pick for hospital district board

| April 29, 2021 1:00 AM

Several local elections are coming up soon, and during these politically divisive times it is very important for us to remember that voting for candidates simply because they have our same political leanings should not outweigh that they be highly qualified for the positions they run for.

This is why I will be voting for Jessie Peters, ARNP, for the Pend Oreille Hospital District board of trustees. Mrs. Peters is a local nurse practitioner who understands the financial needs of our local health care providers. She is an intelligent and fiscally responsible person with over 10 years of budget management experience for a large rural nonprofit healthcare company. She also does not work for or sit on the board of any of the facilities that will receive the tax money that this board allocates.

Jessie Peters will help ensure that our local hospitals are appropriately funded and that our local tax dollars are well spent. Please consider taking the time to vote for her on May 18 at your normal voting location or you can vote early at the Bonner County Elections office.
