Kennedy Not Running For Re-election

Councilman Mike Kennedy announced this morning that he is not running for re-election nor is he running for mayor this year:

“Today I’m announcing that I will not run for re-election to the City Council nor will I run for Mayor this fall.  There are two reasons:  1) after eight years of public service my family is looking forward to having more of my undivided time and energy; and 2) our company Intermax Networks is growing rapidly with the construction of our new fiber data and voice network throughout North Idaho.  The opportunities are great, we are hiring and expanding, and I want to focus on that growth. I’ve loved this chapter in my life as an elected official, and I will definitely continue my civic involvement in some form in the future because it’s the right thing to do.  My time on City Council has been a valuable down payment on public service.” More here.

DFO: I will interview Mike online about 11 o'clock this morning re: his announcement.
