The amount of campaign cash flowing into the North Idaho College Board of Trustee election races is up to $31,882. That's the total amount of contributions reported by 10 candidates involved in the races for three seats up for grabs on the community college's governing board.

This election is the first time community college trustees have had to disclose their campaign spending/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
