Widmyer for positive future

Steve Widmyer is the only candidate for Coeur d’Alene mayor to speak to what it’s like for local businesses to thrive in our area. He is the only candidate promoting a real plan for continuing to recruit businesses (aka other employers) to our area. This does two things: It helps drive our economy by employing more people, and it widens our tax base so we can continue to offer services and amenities that will make Coeur d’Alene an attractive option in a competitive market.

I’m busy putting food on the table for my family. I do not have time or care to learn about who may feel slighted in a recall attempt, or how many meetings the local activists attended over the years. What I care about is my paycheck and the paychecks I feel responsible for to those I employ.

I believe the best choice for mayor is Widmyer. If you are like me – worried about making a local business work from one month to the next – vote Widmyer. Our choice in November will have tremendous impact on our local economy for years to come.

Invest in a positive future: Vote Steve Widmyer for mayor.
