Joe Pakootas is one of the most honest and genuine people I have ever met, which is why he gets my vote to represent the 5th Congressional District of Washington state.
Over the past two years, Joe has attended numerous events in Pend Oreille County, but I cannot recall seeing or meeting Dave Wilson. Did he forget that we’re part of the district?
Joe has demonstrated successful leadership, and is very clear on issues and policies with which to address them. Wilson’s website leaves too many questions unanswered. He identifies problems but offers no substantive means of fixing them. And promising to not collect a pension hardly qualifies him to be our representative.
After reading their interviews in The Spokesman (July 10), I can see only one area in which I agree with both of them: McMorris Rodgers must be replaced as our representative. And the person to do that is clearly Joe Pakootas.
