County Commissioner-elect Todd Tondee (re: rumor that he’s backing Tami Martinez to fill his spot on Post Falls City Council: Just to set the story straight the mayor has the sole responsibility to appoint any council seat that is vacated and the whole council approves or denies his recommendation. Now that you mention it I think Tami would do an excellent job. I hope she applies.
DFO: Thanks for responding and clearing the air, Todd. Indeed, Tami would be a good council consideration, as would a number of other people. You’ll be wise to stay as far away from the selection process as possible.
