Widmyer Running For CdA Mayor

Longtime businessman Steve Widmyer, 52, threw his hat in the ring Wednesday, saying he is definitely going to run for mayor of Coeur d'Alene. Widmyer is mostly known as the owner of Fort Grounds Grill, but he also owns two women's boutiques with his wife and several commercial and residential buildings in Coeur d'Alene. He said he has been kicking the idea around for the past month or so, but one phone call pushed him over the top. "I got a call from an 80-year-old resident of Coeur d'Alene this week, and he told me that he was worried about the future of the city," Widmyer said. "That's when I thought I need to be paying attention to that"/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (Facebook page photo of Steve Widmyer)

Question: Who will win in a four-way battle among Steve Widmyer, Mary Souza, Jim Brannon and Joe Kunka?
