Sandpoint’s Activist Mayor Should Do His Job or Step Down I am weary of Sandpoint’s activist Mayor, Shelby Rognstad, using his office as a self-righteous bully pulpit. Rognstad’s multiple, sanctimonious proclamations have been nothing but divisive. His latest, in a city-approved proclamation—an alignment with the Love Lives Here movement—is inappropriate. Love Lives Here sounds good on paper, but when you take the time to examine the words and actions of those involved with the organization, you’ll see that the Love Lives Here crew is filled with the intolerant and hate-filled. Further, Shelby’s constant ranting about gun-toting, racist “vigilantes” in our area is a fabrication and thus alienates a large swath of Sandpoint’s good and decent residents. So, Mayor Rognstad: get off your high horse of moral superiority and do your job, like focusing your energy on the Sandpoint City Sewer Plant that regularly spills sewage into our river. Or you can resign, and let someone who wants to do the job of mayor, and represent all of Sandpoint’s residents, step in. Debby Trinen Bonner County
