Democrat Files As Commish Write-In

Democrat Jerry Shriner plans to withdraw from his House District 3 race and run for the District 2 county commissioner seat now held by Jai Nelson. Republican newcomer David Stewart currently is running unopposed for the seat after the withdrawals of Nelson and Terry Lee Wall. In a news release, Shriner said that it is clear that Kootenai County voters want work done rather than ideological bickering. “They want county commissioners who solve problems such as jail overcrowding and planning and zoning.”   “They want commissioners who listen and act. They don’t like feeling they are being sold a bill of goods.” Shriner points to his 20-year career in adult and juvenile corrections, his history leading non-profits and his small business experience in Kootenai County as preparation for the job of county commissioner.  “I owned a construction company in the county in the 80s and my wife and I owned and operated assisted living facilities in Hayden.”  I know how tough it can be to make payroll, pay the rent and pay taxes.”

Question: Are you glad to see a second choice in this race?
