About Dave

MY BACKGROUND IN BONNER COUNTY

About twenty years ago I discovered Bonner County while on a road trip through Central and North Idaho and Western Montana. I grew up in a rural area and I could tell right away this was the kind of place I wanted to call home. I was drawn in by the strong sense of community and Patriotism, and the natural beauty that surrounds us. In 2011 I was able to purchase a home here and start to put down roots, while still living in Seattle and running a business there. Over time I was able to purchase the Selle Valley home we now live in.


I currently serve as the Chairman of Keep Bonner County Rural, a group of people from all over Bonner County concerned with the irresponsible development that has been ushered in by the current Board of Commissioners. Together with my wife Susan and many people whose families have been here for generations, we stand against any attempt to turn Bonner County into another Rathdrum Prairie.

I BELIEVE

Successful in business for 37 years. Negotiated complex contracts; managed personnel and legal issues; solved tough budgeting situations and logistical hurdles. This is the experience I bring to serve as your Commissioner.


Every decision a Commissioner makes effects taxpayers in a meaningful way and I take that responsibility very seriously. Every dollar in the budget comes from the pockets of hard-working taxpayers and none should be spent without great care and accountability.

I sold my business to retire here; to be part of this community I’ve grown to love. I have never run for any kind of political office before this, I’m drawn by a sense of duty.

I WILL RESTORE ACCOUNTABILITY IN YOUR COUNTY GOVERNMENT
