M 2011 Idaho General Election

Steve Adams

A candidate for Council Seat 5, City of Coeur d'Alene in the 2011 Idaho General Election

City: Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Occupation: Insurance agent

On this race: Adams, 45, said his approach is a “pretty straight-forward, conservative philosophy of less taxes and more freedom,” which he said is lacking on the council. He opposes the plan to remake McEuen Field, said the urban renewal agency should be shut down and the law creating it repealed at the state level, and government should be limited as much as possible. He opposed the recent city pay raises at a time when unemployment hovers around 11 percent. He said his 20 years of business experience will help right-size city government. Though the race is nonpartisan, he said he’s different from his two opponents because he’s a Republican and they’re Democrats.
