Vote for Piotrowski, Sturgill

I would like to bring to the readers’ attention the problem of public lands. As we all know, Idaho has much national forest land within its borders. Some believe the state should somehow acquire and control these federal lands to do with them as it sees fit. Proposals are there to sell, rent and otherwise “develop” them.

Once acquired, a brief shot of money would come to the state; however, the land would be gone from public use forever. That seems like a terrible trade-off. The lands we love to fish, hunt and camp on would be lost to us, our children and our grandchildren. There would be no reversing this terrible misadventure. The lands would be used for the benefit of Idaho’s elite, not us and our children.

Vote for James Piotrowski and Jerry Sturgill who are on record for opposing the state’s takeover of public lands.
