Brandt heads to Republican Convention

     Idaho County Commissioner and local hometown boy Skip Brandt of Kooskia recently discussed his decision to become a delegate for Donald Trump in this year’s election. 

7-21-16-skip-brandt-1Wrought with controversy from the beginning, Trump’s position to run for the Presidency has come under fire on every level.

     “I’ve supported Trump early on for the one thing, and that is he’s anti-establishment. Our Federal Government is absolutely broke, mentally and physically. We can’t do anything and it affects our agencies. The Forest Service can’t do anything, and why? Because of Congress, not because of the guys over here that want to go and manage the land; they can’t jump through all the bureaucracy steps that Congress has put on it. So how do you change that? You need somebody that’s not business as usual,” said Brandt.
