Letters to the Editor

In Support of Bill Lewis

This letter is in support of BILL LEWIS, a candidate for the Oneida County Commission. Bill has served as chair of the County Commission and so understands the challenges and opportunities facing Oneida County.

Raised in Malad and graduating from Malad High School, Bill returned to his hometown and immediately became involved in serving even though he could have just retired and spent time in the mountains with his mules. Besides running for political office, he has been one of two Scoutmasters who have helped many young men earn their Eagle Scout awards and taught them to be good citizens. 

Understanding the importance of preserving the history of Oneida County, Bill serves on the Oneida Pioneer Museum Board and is in charge of maintaining a 110-year-old building that houses many historical artifacts important to Oneida County. He also serves on the committee involved in identifying and putting signs by historic sites throughout the County.

When living in Montana, Bill sold agriculture equipment, which means he understands the needs of farmers and ranchers. He wants to ensure that the farmers and ranchers have the water and other resources they need for their crops and livestock. Bill admits that the development code is not perfect and needs fine tuning with input from all citizens of the County.  But the code is needed to protect the interests and rights of everyone, including farmers, ranchers, developers, current residents, and new residents. Bill understands that this nation operates under the rule of law and that the electorate must be involved in ensuring that the laws are just and fair for all.

Serving on the County Commission takes a lot of time – time researching the issues, time attending meetings with personnel from other counties, time meeting with constituents. Bill has proven that he is willing to spend the time to fulfill the duties of County Commissioner.

Please vote for a man who has the experience to protect the rights of everyone in Oneida County, the love for his hometown, and the time to find answers to complex questions facing Oneida County. Vote for Bill Lewis.
