What’s To Become Of Sandi?

In this 2005 file photo, City Finance Director Troy Tymesen, left, Mayor Sandi Bloem and Project coordinator Renata McLeod, rejoice over the city's good fortune as they write a press release announcing the awarding of a Kroc foundation grant of $25 million to build a civic center in Coeur d'Alene.

DFO: No public official has affected the landscape of Coeur d'Alene more in my 28 years here than three-term Mayor Sandi Bloem. New library. Kroc Center. Centennial/Prairie trails. Education Corridor. Downtown renewal. Etc. Yet here future as mayor seems uncertain as time approaches for her to consider a fourth term. Her political enemies are hell-bent to bounce her from a fourth term after failing to get enough signatures to force her into a recall election. The hardline Reagan Republicans are sure to focus their scorched earth approach against anyone who doesn't embrace their type of conservatism against her. No mayor has served three terms, let alone four. What do you think?

Question: Will Sandi Bloem be elected to a fourth term if she decides to run again next year?
