Vote based on Kroc Center


This is an appeal to all Coeur d’Alene residents who are current Kroc members, former Kroc members, or have benefited in any way from the Kroc Center. There is no question that without the leadership of Mayor Sandi Bloem and the City Council, we would not have a Kroc Center here in Coeur d’Alene today.

We all know that improving McEuen has been a controversial subject, but the mayor and council have done nothing wrong or illegal that should merit a recall.

Many of the very same people that are now opposing McEuen improvements, opposed Kroc before it was built.

You be the judge. Has Kroc been good for the community? If you respect, admire or support the Kroc Center, and projects like it, then when someone asks you to sign a recall petition, please just say “no thanks.”
