Kootenai County clerk

Kootenai County Clerk Dan English was well on his way to retaining his seat Tuesday against Republican challenger Lee Knowles.

English, 44, had 4,061 votes with about 8 percent of the ballots tallied. Knowles, 68, had 2,691 votes.

English, a Democrat, was appointed in 1995 to fill the clerk’s position when Tom Taggart was selected as the county’s first administrator.

Knowles, who owns a bed and breakfast on Lake Coeur d’Alene, has never held public office, but was active in the Kootenai County Property Owners Association.
