Pakootas is strongest

After reading the bios and comments of Joe Pakootas and Dave Wilson, I conclude that Pakootas is the strongest candidate for the 5th district to replace McMorris-Rogers. Joe has vastly more leadership experience, overseeing health, education and job issues on the Colville reservation and others; basically he governed a small nation.

He’s also had to work with Washington, D.C. bureaucracy as tribal CEO. He’s personally familiar with the needs of the working class and poor who make up most of our district. He’s dealt with longtime polluters and won. Joe will represent us well. I vote for Joe.
