Library Board Members Ignore Taxpayers

The Board members of our library have made it clear that they feel no obligation to represent all of the property tax paying people of Bonner County.

The most recent example is their refusal to end the mask mandate despite the fact that there is no state or county mask mandate. Rather than giving library patrons the option of wearing a mask or not, the Library Director Ann Nichols has been quoted in local publications demeaning and belittling those who are against the Library’s mask mandate. She said, ”They think it’s unconstitutional but it isn’t. Libraries can set their policies when it comes to health.” I find this attitude interesting as she clearly has no interest in serving all of the people in Bonner County and the divisive “they” comment is telling. I think it’s time to make some changes on the Library Board and we can do that on May 18th.

Jaylon Peters is running for the Library Board. He has worked in administration in the private sector and understands that treating all customers (aka taxpayers) with courtesy, common sense and in a manner that doesn’t infringe on their Constitution rights helps the library to function in a way that is inclusive rather than exclusive . This is the reason I am casting my vote for Jalon Peters on May 18th.
