It's time to make a difference...

Okay...It's not the sexiest of elections, but voting for competent highway district commissioners is serious business. In Idaho, these are the folks that make sure your regional road network is taken care of. They are the people who make sure those pot holes are filled and the roads are plowed. They are the ones who make sure your road dollars are put to the highest and best use.

These positions are not often contested, and they are rarely politically charged. But it looks like there maybe a couple of pretty good horse races tomorrow. In the Post Falls Highway District there are four people vying for one seat, and in the Worley Highway District two people are angling for a position on the board.

The Coeur d'Alene Press has done a good job reporting on this race. To read the story they ran today: Click Here

Come on, now. It's part of my get-out-the-vote strategy...It got your attention didn't it?

BTW, shouldn't you be in a class or something?
