Lifelong Bonner County and Priest River resident, Jeff Connolly, is seeking the District 2 seat of the Bonner County Board of Commissioners. Connolly’s wealth of community service experience precedes this bid for Commissioner.
As a city councilman for 15 years, 10 years working with area youth athletics, 4 years on the Airport Board, 5 years on the Priest River Chamber of Commerce, and 15 years on the Board of the Priest Community Forest Connection, Connolly has tirelessly worked to better his communities and the quality of life in Bonner County.
After running his own logging company for many years, Jeff has worked with Mike Reynolds Logging for the past 21 years, first as a machinery operator and then as the forest crew supervisor. Along with that experience, Connolly has participated in the Panhandle Forest Collaborative for the past 5 years, finding solutions to tough forest use issues that our area has struggled with for years.
“Finding solutions is often really tough, but with open dialogue and good listening skills, stuff can and will be accomplished,” Connolly said. “Being inclusive with all the constituents is something I take very seriously.”
