Sage Dixon is integrity in action

| May 12, 2022 1:00 AM

I’d like to thank Representative Sage Dixon for his continual support for the Lake Pend Oreille School District’s Early Learning Center. We have had a dream of creating a smaller, more adaptive playground for our youngest special needs students.

After hearing my story about trying to raise funds for this project Representative Dixon committed to giving us the proceeds from a walking contest he participates in annually in Boise. He has purposefully participated and earned the money knowing it would go to this project because he believes in it. He has shared with me his childhood memories of having a special education teacher for a mother and his fond memories of helping with her volunteer work for the Special Olympics. This project is close to his heart.

We are now ready to break ground on the project that Mr. Dixon contributed the first dollar toward over five years ago. He has raised over $5,000 toward our goal of $20,000 for fencing and play equipment. Thank you from all of us.

I personally appreciate his attentiveness to our county and his calm presence. He has approached his leadership responsibilities with courage and integrity. He has remained attentive and approachable, listening and responding to the concerns of our county and beyond. Another thank you from my family. We will be casting our vote for Sage Dixon May 17.
