Elect Super to District 45 board

On Nov 8., in addition to the regular city and county elections taking place, people who reside in Blaine County, are registered to vote and own land with water rights within the Wood River Valley Irrigation District 45 are being asked to select a new board member.

James R. Super is someone who will represent all water rights owners, not just a select few. Mr. Super has stated he will work to bring financial accountability back to the district. He will work to reduce the budget and bring it back in line with current economic realities. He will work to provide real opportunities to participate and have a voice in how the district is run. Jim will also strive to bring back a spirit of cooperation and transparency to the business of operating the district, something that has been lacking in recent years.

The opposition candidate is Mr. Mike Harris. Mr. Harris historically has represented the special interests of a select group of large landowners and has repeatedly demonstrated disdain for both small property owners and their property rights. Would you like more of the same or a person with new ideas about how the district should be run?

The polling place for this special election is 172 Pero Rd., on Nov. 8 from 1-7 p.m. All persons listed on the title to a property may vote if registered. Those people who live in subdivisions with homeowners associations, make sure the one vote allotted your association is exercised by the appropriate officer of your association. It should be noted that not all homeowners associations vote for their residents—Bellevue Farms is a good example.

Get out there and vote!
