Jason Welker is invested in this community

What makes Sandpoint a great place to live? For many of us it is having access to trails for hiking and biking so we can enjoy our beautiful outdoors. Without Jason Welker’s efforts, Sandpoint residents would have far fewer opportunities. Welker’s efforts and leadership have resulted in expansion of hiking and biking trails near Sandpoint, including in the Syringa Trail network and in the Little Sand Creek Watershed. Welker organized and brought youth mountain bike programs to Sandpoint, both through after-school clinics for local school children and summer camps, which over the last two years have helped introduce over 100 local youth to the healthy lifestyle mountain biking enables.

Jason Welker is running for Sandpoint City Council and he has my support because he is invested in this community. He has my vote on Nov. 2 and I hope he has yours.
