to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
While Skip Brandt was representing District 8 in the Idaho Senate,
Idahoans throughout the state had no better champion of property, water
and firearms rights. Skip made sure that ALL of the basic rights
we enjoy in Idaho stayed intact on his watch. Skip earned an A rating
from the National Rifle Association and I had the pleasure of working with
Skip on firearms and hunting issues and found him to be an excellent caretaker
of the rights we enjoy here.
Idaho County residents have a chance to reelect a solid conservative
who will be a bulldog when it comes to ensuring that our personal freedoms
are strengthened and not weakened. I would urge you to return Skip
to his Idaho County Commissioner seat.
Dwight Van Horn,
Board of Directors, National Rifle association
Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor and Patrons of Idaho County;
Where will you be Tuesday May 15th? We will be voting in the Idaho
County Primary Election. Who will be our choice for Idaho County Commissioner?
We are casting our ballot for Skip Brandt.
Why do we select Skip? Because he cares about Idaho County.
Join us May 15th and vote for a true leader; Skip Brandt.

Republicans have some very basic principle beliefs that separate them
from all other polictical parties. This statement of beliefs can
be found in the Idaho GOP Platform. Last week we invited the candidates
who are running as Republicans to address the Idaho County Republican Central
Committee in a forum. I gave each candidate a questionnaire and asked
them to fill it out. The questionnaire asked the candidates if they
supported each of the principle beliefs that are listed in the Platform.
Two candidates, Steve Didier and Greg Smith, have been unwilling to return
the questionnaire to the Central Committee. Republican candidates
who aren't willing to admit that they support and believe in Republican
ideals concern me. All voters, regardless of political party, should
question why any candidate would proclaim to be something they are not.

When it comes to leadership and getting things done wouldn't
you like to have a man of action or do you want someone full of Hot Air?
Vote for a man of action, Skip Brandt for District one Commissioner
on May 15
I had a letter in last week's Free Press asserting that we have Democratic
candidates and their supporters posing as Republicans. To get elected here
they must hide from the policies of the National Democratic Party. In last
week's Free Press was an election bio on county commissioner candidate
Steve Didier, indicating his support of zoning for Idaho County. Another
article covering the county Democratic caucus stated, "participant Jerry
Asker of Grangeville lobbied support for Republican Idaho County Commission
candidate Steve Didier".
My suspicions were reaffirmed.
Some say party doesn't matter but I disagree. I believe the Republican
Party looks to private industry and business to lead and solve our problems
while the Democrats think more government is the solution. Do you want
more government in your life? We still have a lot of freedom to lose. Please
vote carefully. Thanks

I support Steve Didier, Sr. Republican Candidate for Idaho County Commissioner,
District 1 and here is why.
We need someone representing Idaho County who believes in the experience
and knowledge of the people that live and work here. Steve believes the
commissioners and the people need to work together. Now there's a promising
Steve is a long time resident of Idaho County and has personal experience
with occupations such as timber, sawmill, outfitting and guiding, emergency
services, government and volunteer organizations.
Steve spends his free time recreating on the lands around Idaho County
or volunteering to make them a better place.
Steve is someone we need as an Idaho County Commissioner.

I am supporting Steve Didier, Sr. for Idaho County Commissioner in
District 1. I am Director of STOP the SWAP. We are a grassroots Citizen
group who is opposing the Lochsa Land Exchange. In that capacity I have
tried to reach out and communicate with our current Board of Commissioners.We
need Commissioners who will react professionally and courteously with their
constituents even when they disagree on policy. I have met with Didier
and believe he will conduct an honest and open style of government that
will listen to the people. Please help us take back our local Government
and return to the days when Commissioners represent their Constituents
and not just a select special interest group.
Director, Stop the Swap
