Leach knows the needs of the county well enough to serve

Stan Leach   Stan Leach, incumbent Clearwater County District 2 Commissioner, was born in Moscow in 1960 to Ted and Donna Leach and moved to Orofino with his family in 1964.

   He graduated from Orofino High School in 1978 and saved enough money to pay for his first year of college at the U of I. Leach decided the outdoor life was more to my liking so started his career in the logging industry.

   Eventually he built up to owning his own logging company with 15 employees.

   Leach said, “I got involved in politics because I felt my business background and practical common sense approach could help in running the county.”

   He has served as Clearwater County Commissioner since he was first elected in 2003.

   “I have chosen to live here my whole life because of the outdoor opportunities and the spirit and character of the people that live here” Leach said.

   He lives in Orofino with his wife Heather and four-year-old stepson Alec Sawyer.
