Jalon Peters Brings Balance to Our Lopsided Library Board

Jalon Peters Brings Balance to Our Lopsided Library Board

 

Last week, a local organization held a Meet and Greet that included all of the candidates for the May 18th library and hospital board elections.

And there was something that struck those of us paying close attention: two of the sitting library board members—one of whom is an incumbent seeking re-election and participated in the event—appeared mask-less and took no issue with the packed room. Further, there was no hesitation on her part to pass around a microphone from one participant to another throughout the 15-minute Q and A.

And if you’ve witnessed the library board meetings, you’d know this stands in stark contrast to their sparsely-attended meetings where everyone is required to wear masks and sit six feet apart should you wish to participate. 

Are you getting the picture here? This same board member reiterated her support for the ongoing library mask mandate while sitting in a packed room of strangers mask-free.

And this is why the library board needs fresh voices, representatives who will speak for those of us whose voices are routinely ignored by the current board make-up.

Jalon Peters will be that voice. He lives his principles and understands that East Bonner County is home to a diversity of thought that is conspicuously lacking on our lopsided library board. And Jalon will stand up for your rights in a world increasingly trampling on them.

Please vote for Jalon Peters on May 18th.
