Spencer Seeks Courthouse Seat

Kootenai County commissioner candidate Larry Spencer doesn't believe the county needs a parking garage built at the administration complex. "Voters want a lean government, and there is nothing lean about planning to spend $7.8 million on a county parking garage," said Spencer, running for the District 1 seat currently held by Dan Green. He also disagrees with the current commissioners' ballot initiative to restructure county government. If approved by voters, the initiative would allow for a county administrator, and would also make several county officials appointed, instead of elected as they are now/Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Obviously, Spencer believes the proposed county parking garage and ballot measure to change county government structure are wedge issues for him. What do you think?
