Clerk: 1 Less Commish Candidate

There will not be seven candidates for County Commissioner District 1 after all. Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes announced today that “Elections staff did not follow all our procedures when handling the candidacy declaration for Steven Peter Benner. We allowed Mr. Benner to file for County Commissioner District 1 without verifying his residency within that district.” County Commissioners are elected county-wide, but Idaho Code 34-617 requires them to reside in the Commissioner District for which they declare candidacy. Mr. Benner resides in Commissioner District 2, which isn’t up for election in 2012/Kootenai County Clerk's Office news release.
