Stephen Snedden, a third-generation Bonner County resident, announced that he will run to represent Bonner and Boundary counties in the Idaho House of Representatives. “I had the best childhood here and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I want to protect the things that are important – a clean lake to swim in, a safe place to go to school and a chance to come back here and make a living,” said Snedden. An attorney in Bonner County, Snedden served four years on the Sandpoint City Council. As a city councilman, he fixed problems for local businesses. He also adopted a disciplined approach to public finance by making the municipal budget more accurate and passing a city-wide hiring freeze/News Release. More here.
