Who Will Run For Mayor, Council?

I've been running a few names around in my head re: possible candidacies for Coeur d'Alene mayor and council — solid individuals who could win seats in this era of partisan nonpartisan races. In the comments section moments ago, I mentioned that someone like Jimmy McAndrews would be an ideal candidate for the Coeur d'Alene City Council. Jimmy, I believe, lives in Hayden, so he wouldn't be eligible. But there should be someone else from his group of young businessmen and women who would qualify. Also, I was mulling over possible solid candidates for mayor who had Republican pedigrees and would support the golden era of progress under the Bloem administration. I came up with one name that met those criteria, who couldn't be derided by the usual suspects as a RINO: long-time, former GOP congressional aide Sandy Patano (pictured). How about you?

Question: Can you think of solid individuals w/GOP pedigree that can keep Coeur d'Alene on its current road to a solid future?
