Skip the spin, vote Lamar
Latah County commissioner candidate Gabriel Rench lists his professional experience as a political television host and public relations consultant. I have seen enough television hosts and spin in politics to last me a lifetime. Looking at his tax policies and lack of belief in climate change, Mr. Rench would be an irresponsible leader for our community.
Our property taxes provide services that make our community what it is, and those services are provided by employed members of our community. It’s a functioning community, it supports itself and makes Latah County what it is. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that our community works best when we support each other. When we are responsible for more than just ourselves, when we have leaders who lead with others in mind and who are accountable to their constituents and their constituent’s wellbeing. I
When Mr. Rench says he wants to cut property taxes, it means he wants to cut local jobs. He wants to cut funding for education, fire protection, parks, youth services, road development and maintenance, law enforcement, the county fair, disaster services, etc. He wants to trim away what helps to make our communities livable including the jobs those services employ. If you are employed by the city or the county, a vote for Gabriel Rench is potentially a vote to defund your own employment.
If you have questions about our local property taxes, look at the Latah County Treasurer web page, they’ve got a great FAQ. Go to the source, skip the spin and skip Gabriel Rench. Vote Tom Lamar for Latah County commissioner this November.
