Kelly Richards (pictured), the former KMC outreach coordinator is the new exec for Concerned Businesses of North Idaho. According to a news release, Richards will place a high priority on building positive working relationships with local elected officials, other community organizations, area biz and the media. (And Hot Potatoes? Heheheh.)
“I believe in working with people, not against them, to get the job done”, says Richards. “CBNI can be of the greatest value to the community as an approachable organization, listening to the concerns of area business leaders and working collectively with local government toward realistic solutions”.
DFO: I almost choked when I read the quote in the news release by President John Young that said Concerned Biz has “defined itself as an advocate for all taxpayers, an asset to our local elected officials, and a strong supporter of common sense representation in local government." If memory serves me correctly, Concealed Biz was directly responsible for the election of ex-CDA Boy Mayor Steve Judy. Common sense? I think not. How about secretive? Dunno what a nice, sharp gal, like Kelly, is doing with this gang. She lives in Hayden with hubby, John, so she can't be CDA's next mayor.
