District 1 shows clear support for Woodward

Two weeks ago, fundraising numbers for the upcoming state senate race were released to the public through the State’s campaign finance website. This information is free and easy for all to see. Based on what I was able to download, it is clear that the people of Bonner and Boundary counties support Jim Woodward over Scott Herndon. The numbers simply don’t lie.

Not only did Woodward raise more money for the upcoming May primary election than Herndon, a whopping 84-percent of Woodward’s money came from local, individual donations, meaning from people in Bonner and Boundary counties. On the other hand, the majority of Herndon’s donors were from either outside of our counties or outside the state.

Which raises the question, who is Herndon working for? I don’t know about you, but I am tired of outside money meddling in our local politics. Keep it local and vote for Jim Woodward in the upcoming May Primary.
