‘Fiesta’ theme for county fair riles some in Bonner GOP

The Bonner County Republican Party central committee’s quibble with the “fiesta” theme of the Bonner County Fair this year is raising eyebrows in Sandpoint, where the party’s planning to decorate its fair booth with Arizona license plates and use “celebrate” as its theme instead. “The Republicans at BCRCC want to make it very clear that English is our primary language, and call our booths ‘Celebrate!’ and display some Arizona license plates if you have some to spare,” committee Chairman Cornel Rasor, a Bonner County commissioner, wrote in a letter to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. Rasor said, “Having a fiesta theme at the fair was OK with me, I didn’t even think about it ‘til somebody brought it up. But their concerns are very real to them, so I don’t want to downplay it.” You can read my full story here at spokesman.com.
