Doug, Priscilla are best choices for sheriff, Dist. 7A Rep

web extra - Letter to the Editor

This letter is about Doug and Priscilla Giddings. Doug is running for re-election as sheriff, and Priscilla for state representative, Dist. 7A. They are both highly qualified and capable people who truly deserve your vote.

I have known Doug for many years, both as sheriff in Riggins and now Grangeville. He is one of those people who brings compassion, understanding and fairness to his position, and is able to lead and inspire simply by being who he is! I have seen him in many situations where compassion within the law leads to positive results. Doug can, and has, proven he can handle any problem that arises, and usually with a smile. Old, young and no matter who or what, he will listen and respond; he literally helps everyone. I’ve never seen him tire of this enormous responsibility.

Why would anyone want to put a green rider on a tough horse? Experience is the gold at this time. Experience is earned and appreciated. Doug has this precious quality and the people of Idaho must return the favors he has given us. It’s just right! 100 percent!

Priscilla is also the correct one! She comes from a family of honor and service to the country and our beloved Idaho. She has enough qualifications to run for president. Priscilla has a core value of strength and understanding that give her the ability to inspire. This is rare and almost always the base power for real leaders. Now is our chance to help her and we should and we will. Our right to vote enables us to make the best choices possible.

It is obvious to me that both Doug and Priscilla are those choices. Once again – it’s just right! God bless.
