Don't vote for Paatalo in school board election

| April 27, 2022 1:00 AM

Whitefish School Board ballots should all be in our homes by now. Do not vote for Jenny Paatalo.

She is on written record in emails to our current school board calling them “human garbage” and that she wants them to get sick, die and "burn in hell,” all using the most vulgar language. This behavior without accountability disqualifies any person from deserving the honor of holding public office, and our Whitefish community needs to make it very clear we do not tolerate or reward this type of behavior. And to anyone who may be considering holding their nose and voting for Jenny Paatalo anyway, do not do it. Take a big whiff of the stench coming off her reprehensible behavior and do not vote for her.

If you did not know she said these terrible things before, now you do. She is currently doubling down on her behavior, standing by her words, considers herself justified and refuses to apologize for her behavior. It is never too late to do the right thing and she is refusing to do the right thing. Anyone who votes for her or places her sign in their yard or business is supporting someone who, from the bottom of her heart, wished death on members of our Whitefish community.
