Dave Radford is running for Bonneville County Commissioner

Dave Radford Bonneville County Commissioner Seat 2Elections are taking place all across the Gem State, and in Eastern Idaho, incumbent Bonneville County Commissioner Dave Radford is up for re-election in two weeks. Here are a few reasons voters should take a look at Dave Radford on May 17.

Radford had a hand in helping Bonneville County be completely debt-free this year. Such news is quite refreshing amidst the backdrop of $19 trillion in national debt.

“We’re now spending our great-grandkids’ money,” Radford says. “There’s not going to be a lot of federal help on the way. What we have to do in this county is show the rest of the nation how we ought to operate government. And I think that’s what we’ve done here in Bonneville County.”

Others agree with and appreciate Radford’s approach to spending. “Dave always has been fiscally conservative with the Bonneville County taxpayer dollars,” says Stan Boyle, chairman of the Bonneville County Fairboard. “He looks at need and not just wants.”

Stan Boyle is just one of many community leaders who know Dave well and support him. “What makes my endorsements unique, compared to my opponent’s?” Radford asks. “These are individuals who have worked with me in my capacity as county commissioner and can vouch for my passion, integrity, and hard work.”

During his tenure as County Commissioner, Radford has been on the right side of an array of important issues including increasing economic development, expanding job opportunities, supporting youth programs, and keeping county taxes low and spending in check.

Radford is also a friend of Idaho farming. “I have not worked with many people who I thought worked any harder for the agricultural interests than Dave Radford,” says Norman Wright, Idaho Soil and Water Conservation Commissioner. “He wears his heart and soul on his sleeve and it shows when he speaks about agricultural interests.

Radford looks to further boost economic development by continuing to support the Idaho National Laboratory, its workforce, and the nuclear energy industry; increasing recreational opportunities across Bonneville County, including easier access to public lands; and expanding affordable higher education for local students.

The key, Radford firmly believes, is leaders and agencies working together for the betterment of the community.

“What that takes is planning of all the county offices—the commissioners just don’t get all the credit,” Radford says. “We’ve got a great sheriff’s office that operates the justice fund. We have a great county jail that’s run very efficiently. We have a great treasurer’s office. We budget and we spend very carefully, and we don’t bet on the come, and we don’t borrow money for the future, and we don’t have to bond.”

When it comes to operating as a political subdivision of the state of Idaho, Radford pledges: “We can do it efficiently. … I plan to continue that effort to help make Bonneville County the greatest place to live, work, and raise a family.”

Radford is running for Bonneville County Commissioner Seat 2 against John Walker who served as the Bonneville County Coroner.
