Duane: Nilson’s Good For Community

Duane Rasmussen: I have known for a long time that Ron Nilson has core values that a real Christians can respect. I am afraid that too many on this blog have been so absorbed in partisan bickering that they find it difficult to believe that some people try to do the right thing just because it is the right thing to do. Although there was an article written about Ron Nilson’s contribution to those less fortunate I did not see him promoting himself. Our Community needs more people like Ron Nilson.

DFO: I agree with Duane to a point here. Love him or hate him, Ron Nilson has done something that's thisclose to great, in offering his warehouse for a warming center for the homeless. He didn't have to do that. Also, Nilson deserves a H/T for his role in helping pass the Kootenai Technical Education Campus during hard times. I wouldn't want to see him in elected office, given his intense personality. But he is good for the community. His detractors here should admit that.
