Dear Editor,

I recently had an opportunity to hear Steve Andersen, a candidate for Justice of the Peace for Jefferson County, speak in Whitehall.   I was very impressed with his knowledge and breadth of experience and his ability to answer questions in a factual and concise way.  He has been serving as substitute JP, filling in for Dennis Giulio, for the past five years.  Steve will be ready to hit the ground running for this position. He’s been a Logger and a Law Enforcement Officer and currently he practices law in Montana City at Andersen Law Offices.  He will be objective and fair and will uphold the law as Justice of the Peace.  Please join me in voting for Steve Andersen!

An important issue that will be on the June 5th ballot is a 1 mill levy for Jefferson County Search and Rescue. I urge everyone to vote for this mill levy because many volunteers put in countless hours to respond to emergencies throughout our county.  This levy will be split between the North and South end of the county and will help these crews purchase much needed equipment.  Let’s support our Search and Rescue teams by supporting this levy.

Please join me in supporting Bryher Herak for HD 75.  Bryher is an engaged member of our community who will be a sensible voice for the people of Jefferson County.  She will work across the aisle to balance the state budget and help eliminate the gridlock in our State Legislature.  She supports good paying jobs for our county and she’ll work towards helping small businesses thrive throughout our county.  Bryher is also a champion of Public Schools and will work toward providing the best learning experience for the children of Jefferson County.  “Civility, Community, and Common Sense.” Vote for Bryher!
