Library District One Board of Trustee Candidate Announced


My name is Lee Haarstick, a resident of Porthill. I am running for the position of "Board of Trustee" for the Boundary County Library in District #1.

I would like the community to know, they too have an opportunity to serve our library as a Board of Trustee member through the yearly election process. Each year, one of the Board of Trustee positions is up for re-election. There are five Districts and each nominated trustee serves a five-year term. Each year one district of the five in our county comes available for election on a rotational basis. This year is District One, next year is District Two (Moyie area), and so on. The process usually starts in April each year with requirements being you must be 18 years of age, a United States citizen and currently living in the district up for election.

Our Boundary County Library has a very dedicated Director in Sandy Ashworth, with an outstanding committed staff that has helped the Boundary County Library become nationally recognized for its Outreach Services in our community.

As a potential candidate, I would like to participate as a Library Board of Trustee and give back to our community as part of this continuing expertise.

  • Veteran, honorably discharged in 1968.

  • Education - BS degree 1974, Microbiology and Immunology - University of Washington

  • Currently retired from Raytheon Corporation after 25 years as a Project Manager in the Defense Industry supporting our troops.

  • Recently completed a six-year term on the Mt. Hall Community Church Board.

  • One of the above committed staff members mentioned is my daughter, should you find this objectionable or a conflict of interest in voting for me, please cast your vote for the other candidate, Pam Brink.

    If this is not a concern for those of you living in District One, I would appreciate your consideration and vote on Tuesday, May 26, 2009, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Boundary County Library.
