To the Editor:

Greetings Boundary County residents. I’m excited to announce that Beate Clark is running for the Boundary County Clerk position. You have most likely interacted with Beate when she worked for the Bonners Ferry post office. She’s the lady that always expresses a happy, good natured demeanor. She is tall with red hair and speaks with a German accent.

Why is she qualified? She has an accounting background being formerly employed as a tax accountant earlier in her career. More recently, her tenure with the Boundary County Treasurer’s department, gave her the knowledge and experience on how the County runs. She feels there is a need to streamline the work load on several departments and she feels strongly that she would bring a fresh perspective with new ideas to the position of County Clerk. She also believes in strict voter integrity and maintaining a strong vigilance against potential voter fraud. Beate has strong organizational skills, unwavering integrity and a joyful personality that is conducive for building strong relationships and fostering an environment of team work with her associates. All excellent qualities needed for the Clerk’s position.

Currently, Beate is employed at Pro X as their accountant. Prior to moving to Idaho, she was Assistant Publisher for 12 years at the Nob Hill Gazette. She supervised a staff of 10 employees fostering a strong team spirit and camaraderie within her department. She came to the United States in 1994 and began working as a bookkeeper. She married Jeff Clark and they moved to Bonners Ferry when he was transferred here in 2011 as a Customs officer.

Beate earned her citizenship legally by following our country’s strict parameters and became a U.S. citizen in 1994. She is fluent in two languages and she loves the lifestyle and people of Boundary County. It reminds her of the town she was raised in Germany where the people cared for each other.
Beate is eager, has the passion and experience to serve our community. She is requesting your vote on May 15th for Boundary County Clerk.
