Stennett works hard for constituents

    The elections are just around the corner and, for the first time ever, I wanted to write in support of a candidate.
    Most of us know how hard Michelle Stennett has worked and do not need me to list her many accomplishments and efforts on behalf of the people in her district. I’m sure most of you have had personal experience with her supporting legislation and issues that are important to you. Many saw her working tirelessly during the Beaver Creek Fire, doing everything from helping her neighbors move and find homes for their horses that were in the danger zone, provide continuous updates on the firefighting, keep in touch with friends and acquaintances that weren’t sure what to do and where to go, and communicating with all the various local, regional, and national officials behind the scenes. If you’ve spent time with her, I’m guessing you have never seen her complain or be too tired to talk to anyone that wants to share their opinions and concerns with her, positive and negative, about the state of government, whether she is at a political event or just wandering around town. Her golden retriever, Teagan, has spent so much time with her traveling throughout the state in her truck that he could probably drive it at this point!
    What you may not know is that this year Michelle has an opponent. She has been representing us for so many years that sometimes it is easy to forget that we actually have to go vote for her to keep her in office. Early voting is now open and you can go down to the old courthouse in Hailey from now until the end of the month, you can vote on an absentee ballot, or you can vote on Tuesday, Nov. 4. Please vote. It’s important.
