Longo named Distinguished Citizen

COEUR d'ALENE - The chief of police is a citizen, too. In Coeur d'Alene, however, he also happens to be the Distinguished Citizen of the Year for 2012.

Wayne Longo was honored with the award Thursday at the 100th annual Coeur d'Alene Chamber Luncheon at The Coeur d'Alene Resort.

Longo wasn't present for the award, but was on family vacation in Washington, D.C. By phone, he said, “I certainly don't deserve it, and there's many people that do.”

He added, “I'm truly humbled by it.”

His nomination was accepted by the chamber's executive committee. More here. David Cole, Cda Press

  Do you agree with the Chamber's pick or is there someone else you'd like to see named as Citizen of the Year?
