Don't educate a new person at voter expense
April 5, 2018

To the Editor:

Voters of Boundary County:

I write this letter in support of Glenda Poston. Glenda has served Boundary County for the last 14 years as the County Clerk.

Prior to her position as Clerk of the County, Glenda worked in the timber industry for 30 years. Her knowledge of the working of her office, and of the county in general, is hard to challenge. Anyone who thinks they can do a better job has obviously not looked at Glenda’s track record as Clerk. A newly elected Clerk would not have the ability to hit the ground running without having a background in how this community operates.

That in itself would require a new person to be educated at voter expense. Having been an elected official in this county, I know how things work. It takes dedication and hard work to stay the course as long as Glenda has.

As the old saying goes “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Bruce Whittaker
Former Sheriff
Boundary County, Idaho
