Ex-LAPD Officer Seeks HD3 Seat

Former Los Angeles police officer Don Cheatham, a Republican, is running for the state House seat that opened following Frank Henderson's decision to retire. “I have never run for political office, but want to join with other true conservatives who want to not only protect and preserve Idaho's conservative values, but enhance them,” Cheatham said. He has lived in Kootenai County for two years, including the past year in Post Falls. “I love the political atmosphere here, and the way people are connected,” he said. Cheatham said the state's educational system is in “disappointing” shape, and he believes small businesses are struggling. “We also need to identify ways to attract larger businesses and industry,” he said/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Cheatham has an impressive resume. But I can't get past the fact that he has lived in Kootenai County only 2 years. Is that important to you, too?
