Jared Festner, a candidate for the Coeur d'Alene City Council Seat No. 2 race, withdrew from the race today, according to the Kootenai County Clerk's Office. Festner was one of three candidates for the seat now held by Councilman Mike Kennedy. Festner's decision leaves two candidates in the race -- Amy Evans and Chris Fillios. All other races for Coeur d'Alene mayor and city council have three candidates.
