Skees Will Protect Freedoms and Pocketbooks

Derek is being attacked because he is a principled

By Jeff H. Larsen

I support Derek Skees for House District 11. We are at the end of this primary election, and as we all know this is the time when things get nasty. There have been two failed attempts to attack Derek’s character in our mailboxes, and no doubt we will see more. Derek is being attacked because he is a principled, unyielding conservative with a proven record of protecting our property rights, our freedoms and our pocketbooks. His enemies attack him because they do not believe in these principles. They will lie and distort the truth in order to prevent him from returning to Helena and fight for our values.

He continues to stand strong against the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Water Compact. He stands for the sanctity of life from birth to elderly. He will fight to secure the district some much-needed relief in property taxes, and overturn burdensome regulations that stifle our economy. He will fight to secure our property rights, rein in the growth of this state government, and fight to end the business equipment tax. Derek will fight to protect our freedoms and our pocketbooks.

I have known Derek and his family for decades. He lives by the rule that character is more easily maintained than recovered. I will not let the lies of his enemy’s change what I know to be true; Derek Skees is a proven principled conservative, and he always will be. Therefore, I will vote for Derek Skees for HD 11. I urge you to vote for him as well.
