In these last few days I’ve seen a remarkable ratcheting up of nasty attacks against Heather Scott, our state representative in District 1.
Here are some things about Heather you won’t see articles about or see full-color ads about, but they sure deserve to be brought forth.
Heather truly cares for people. She has a special place in her heart for the elderly. I watched as she would go to the grocery store for an elderly neighbor every few days, take the groceries to her, and then sit and talk for a while. Even when she had a busy schedule, she would help this neighbor get her bills in order and assist her as much as she could.
When a young veteran, just returned from combat duty in the Middle East, came to her yard sale looking for a bed, she gave him the one she had for sale – free. Recently, when a friend’s family was in need of firewood, she checked around and found more than a cord of wood – free – that someone was willing to donate. The God’s Provisions Thrift Shop in Priest River is a bigger and nicer-looking place because Heather and her husband made it a project to add on to it and improve it.
Heather doesn’t just talk the talk of a true Christian, she walks the walk. She has a Godly heart, and she has my vote.
