Kathy Sims Backs Gookin, Adams

Coeur d'Alene Honda, owned by state Sen. Kathy Sims, has contributed $908.48 apiece to the Coeur d'Alene City Council campaigns of Dan Gookin and Steve Adams. Sims, an outspoken critic of Mayor Sandi Bloem's administration, made the contributions Oct. 3. Of note, Sims filed the 7-day, pre-election campaign financial disclosure statement on time and to the appropriate entity, the city clerk's office. Four years ago, Sims & Tom Macy of Post Falls violated city statutes by filing an incomplete disclosure statement with the state rather than the city. Sims & Macy then fought the city for more than a year re: the matter before reaching a settlement. The controversial disclosure statement covered the cost of an attack flyer Sims & Macy circulated on the final weekend of the campaign against City Council incumbents.
