About this race

The district includes Coeur d’Alene south of Dalton Avenue and the southern and eastern portions of the county. A proposed overhaul of Kootenai County’s land development rules whipped up a storm of criticism last year and drove the three county commissioners to dump a Texas consultant hired to do the update. The controversy over the ill-fated Unified Land Use Code motivated Republican Marc Eberlein, a champion of private property rights, to run for the county Board of Commissioners. Democrat Bruce Noble is challenging him. Other issues include the county’s long-running effort to ease jail crowding; county employee pay and morale; and high employee turnover in the sheriff’s office and jail.
