Councilwoman KerriT: Dad (Ron Rankin) was a happy warrior and after his election to the Kootenai County Board of Commissioners served well in his two terms. He far exceeded the expectations of his detractors with his dedication and leadership. To this day when I'm at the county admin building someone from county staff (of any department) will stop to tell me how much he's missed there at the courthouse. Perhaps Mary will also exceed many people's expectations as a legislator.
DFO: Kerri's correct. Ron Rankin, her anti-property tax activist father, scared the daylights out of the Kootenai County staff when he won his first election as commissioner. But he was well-loved at the courthouse by the time his two terms ended six years later.
Question: What would Mary Souza have to do as a state senator to surprise you?
