As mentioned on this blog last week, Noel Adam of 3939 N22nd St. has filed his candidacy papers to run for open City Council Seat No. 6. Kiki Miller is the only other candidate who has filed for the seat now occupied by long-time Councilwoman Deanna Goodlander. Adam, a Coeur d'Alene Realtor, submitted a petition with six signatures: Tricia Dean, P.J. Dean, Sandra Davis, Nancy A. Adam, James E. Pryor and his own.

Kiki Miller Files For CdA Council

Kiki Miller, a longtime Coeur d’Alene resident and business owner, made it official today and filed her petition for candidacy for seat number 6 (now held by Deanna Goodlander) on the Coeur d’Alene City Council. Since announcing her intention to run for office last month, Miller has been seeking input from community members to guide her campaign.

Miller has lived in Coeur d’Alene since 1975 and has been involved in numerous civic and leadership projects over the past several decades. “I’m extremely excited and dedicated to serving on the council and truly value the opportunity to be part of shaping our city’s bright future,” Miller said/News Release.

Kiki Miller Announces Candidacy

Kiki Miller, a longtime Coeur d'Alene resident and community activist, announced today that she is a candidate for the Coeur d'Alene City Council. Miller has lived in Coeur d'Alene since 1975 and has been involved in numerous civic and leadership projects over the past several decades. “I'm running for city council because I've spent the last 30 years being involved in multiple aspects of community service, promoting our region, and civic projects that have helped to create our great city,” said Miller. “We have challenges in the near future, but we can have positive outcomes if we involve the creative vision of the entire community.” Miller's vision for the city includes a quality education system, a diverse offering of sustainable jobs, responsible planning, and strong fiscal management in order to grow the local economy, while protecting the natural resources and (the city's) quality of life.

Kiki Swings My Vote At 11th Hour

Here’s the Facebook argument from Kiki Miller that ultimately tipped the balance in my mind to vote for the Kootenai Technical Education Campus: “Still confused about KTec a bit. But…for my simple mind it’s….. a.) kids & education (yes, tech training is education!) = money well spent b.) districts rarely cooperation with each other, good to support that effort c.) it’s less tax than dinner with a friend outta my pocket and 30min to go vote. so.. yes it is!”

Question: What ultimately swayed your KTEC vote?

Kiki: How Do Iron(wo)men Recuperate?

On my Facebook page, Kiki Miller asks: “What do you hear Iromen do the morning after? Is there like an Ironman hangover cure? Group therapy? Moan and sleep? After so much training and then the emotion of the day, it must be very unique time.”

Question: Anyone have answers to her questions?

Kiki: Broken Stove Turns Into Overhaul

New Facebook friend Kiki Miller tells of a problem that should have a familiar ring to it, for many of you. Sez Kiki: “Replacing a broken stove turned into a kitchen overhaul that has lasted for three months. I know, I know… ‘can’t you do anything that doesn’t turn into an event!!!!’ I want to move out of my garage now. Please.” How about you?

Question: When is the last time that you tackled a fairly simple project and wound up turning it into a major overhaul of an area of your house?
