Dear Editor:

I’m fairly appalled by several of the campaign signs that Idaho County Commissioner Skip Brandt has displayed in his yard. I’m equally concerned and disappointed about several not there, as Priscilla Giddings, Janice McGeachin, Ed Humphreys, Dorothy Moon, Art Macomber, Cindy Carlson, and Brandon Durst are missing.

What do Skip’s support choices say about this top (supposedly republican conservative) official in a position of power second only to our county sheriff?

Secondly, here’s my response to a statement disseminated statewide recently by James Rockwell, current head of the Idaho County Republican Central Committee, demanding that Representive Pricilla Giddings, candidate for Lt. Governor, issue a public apology for her supposed mischaracterization of her opponent, Speaker of the House, Scott Bedke: Can Committee Chairman Rockwell actually prove that Priscilla Giddings maligned her opponent in any way? What does his record show?

Believe me: If all those designated “Republican” in our county and throughout our state truly lived and voted according to the principles so admirably spelled out in the GOP platform, there would be few complaints from me. (A pretty big IF!)

RINOS?? Sorry to say, but Idaho does have its share!
