Vote "yes" on city, council government study commissions

| May 31, 2024 7:00 AM

Voters of Lincoln County:

The June 4, 2024, primary election has decisive impact for every citizen!

The establishment of a “study commission” consisting of (5) five members to examine the current government of Lincoln County and submit recommendations to our County Commissioners is critical. 

If Resolution #2024-09 is approved, we, the citizens of this county, can step forward to help guide the direction, goals and objectives of our county government for the next 10 years.

Additionally, the city Council of Libby has also called for a review of our current local government for the next 10 years. If Resolution #2026 is passed, we, the citizens of this Libby community, can step forward to help establish the direction, goals and the objectives of our city government for the next 10 years!

To protect our future in “this last best place,” we need to say “YES” to both resolutions. If you received a ballot in the mail, get it returned today. If you need to register to vote, do it today. If you prefer voting in person, get to the polls on June 4. 


After the successful passing of these two resolutions, you and I need to recruit the best possible candidates for the study commissions who will be elected in the January 2025 general election.

We need to recruit the best possible candidates for this process. 

Our world, as well as our communities, have changed beyond comprehension in the past 10 years. Without a doubt, change and updating is urgently needed in many areas of our governmental policies, procedures and laws as well as in the people now serving in those vital areas that impact our daily lives.

Together, let us put together a slate of candidates that are diverse, committed to the task at hand, and willing to spend the time and energy required to deeply research and analyze the needs and goals of our beautifully multi-generational communities for the next 10 years.

Your future for the next 10 years is in your hands if you vote on June 4!
