Steve Explains His Walks

Steve Widmyer emails: "Just a clarification on the walk. I am walking all the streets of Coeur d Alene but at this point I am not making door to door stops. If I see people on the road or in their lawns I wave and if it looks like they would like to talk I will stop. Everyone is very busy in their lives and I respect their privacy. I, for one, have never really liked someone coming up unannounced to my door. This walk puts me out there and lets people know I am available to talk if they wish..It also gives me a chance to see all of the areas of Coeur d Alene up close. Someone asked me why I just didn't drive all the streets because it would be much faster. My answer is that I want to see as much as I can and give those people that wish to talk an opportunity. I want to be the most available and approachable Mayor that Coeur d Alene has had. I think the walk is just part of it. I worked the street fair for 3 days and I will be at the North Idaho Fair for 5 days. My email address is for anyone that has a question for me.

Question: Do you mind having candidates knock on your door?
