Walser says he will be a team player as Latah Co. Commissioner
MOSCOW, ID - Walser was a farmer for more than 30 years and during that time, he gained experience in budgeting, payroll, marketing and planning.

He said he's running for this position because he likes the idea of working as part of a team with the other commissioners.

"The board works as a team," said Walser. "And that's where I think my background of committees and board of directors involvement is so important. I'm used to working with people. I'm not a one-man-band, not a one-man-show."

In the past, Walser has taken on leadership positions on various boards, including the Farm Services Agency, which is a local branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He opposes Cooke's idea of creating a paramedic service in Latah County because he believes the current volunteer services are fully functioning and do not need to change. Walser is from Viola, and he's a University of Idaho alumnus.
