Steve Bradshaw, the Conservative County Commissioner
As a longtime Clark Fork resident, I strongly opposed the Scotchman Peaks federal wilderness designation being pushed by “Friends of Scotchman Peaks”. Claiming widespread support for it in Bonner County, FSP Chair Hough, then-County Commissioner Cary Kelly, and Bob Boeh of Idaho Forest Products traveled to Washington DC to peddle this lie to US Senator Risch to get him to sponsor legislation for it. The ensuing uproar in Bonner County culminated in a decisive vote against the designation.
Why am I telling you this?
This same Bob Boeh is now the treasurer for “Butch” Horton’s campaign for Bonner County Commissioner. And Horton admits he would have voted for the wilderness designation and would support it again.
Unsurprisingly, FSP members have his campaign signs on their lawns. He is beloved by the Bonner County Democratic Central Committee and well-known local Democrats, environmentalists, and “moderate” Republicans, although he calls himself a “conservative Republican”.
If birds of a feather flock together, this bird is no Republican, let alone a conservative one. A resident of Bonner County for barely a year, he immediately connected with Friends of Scotchman Peaks and began running for Commissioner. FSP has found itself a shill.
We have a choice, though: Steve Bradshaw, the conservative County Commissioner who is honest about who he is and what he stands for. He doesn’t just talk, he walks the walk. This principled man has earned the unanimous endorsement of the Bonner County Republican Central Committee. He deserves our vote.
